Used cars are ideal for teen drivers who are still learning how to navigate the roads safely. They offer lower insurance rates and are extremely affordable no matter your budget. After the automobile has been purchased, a young adult will want to add his or her own personal touches to make the car more unique. This can be done with a variety of accessories.
Wheel and Seat Covers
There is no shortage of wheel and seat covers on the market, and some companies will even customize them if requested. Teens can go with an ancient Aztec pattern if they have a love of history, or select a tie-dye pattern to reveal their creative side. There are animal prints for young drivers who have a favorite living creature, pink floral prints, and Mickey Mouse patterns for Disney fans.
Rear View Mirror Hangs
Most people think of a pair of fuzzy dice when they picture a rear view mirror, but there are plenty of other stylish pieces new drivers can order to spruce up their used cars. Dream catchers are colorful with their dangling feathers, while a monogram mirror hang personalizes the space with a person’s initials. How about a charm with a cute saying or an air freshener in the shape of a cartoon character?
There’s a new kind of air freshener on the market that any teen can take advantage of to add a little character to their ride. They are called vent clips, and one can find them in the shape of characters (think Snoopy or Woodstock), in the shape of an animal (say, a bunny or a cat), or even shaped like a small replica of their favorite coffee drink. If your young driver is looking for functionality, they should consider vent clips that serve as cell phone holders.
Teens are always on the go, often traveling between work, school, and home. That means that their used cars often serve as a home-on-the-road, collecting trash like fast food wrappers, gum, and empty bottles of hand sanitizer. If that sounds familiar, surprise them with a decorative trash bag that is made specifically for use in a vehicle. Cheetah prints, paisley patterns, and attractive butterflies are quite popular.
Decals and Bumper Stickers
Once the inside of the car has been made over, it’s time to move to the outside. Decals and bumper stickers are perfect for this, and there is no shortage of styles, sayings, and images to choose from.
Allowing teens to decorate their used cars is a great way to encourage healthy self-expression. Additional accessories to consider include monogram floor mats, license plate frames, and seat belt covers.
