Be Wiser Insurance

Whether it is brand new or used, the feeling you get when you have purchased a new car can be great. It might seem that men would demonstrate more selfish when it comes to sharing but that is not the case.

Women are far more jealous when it comes to the keys to their new cars, motor insurance research has revealed. Almost 80 per cent of women refuse to let their partners behind the wheel of a new car for at least a month, said the research.

Men are far more generous with their new toys, with over 50 per cent telling motor insurance researchers they were happy to allow their partners to take their new cars for a spin. Over a quarter of women also admitted that they went for a drive with friends to celebrate buying a new car.

Over 55 per cent of men said that they took their car for a relaxed cruise around the block to celebrate their new purchase, with only six per cent saying that they went for a high speed motorway drive.

"We all have our own quirks and routines when it comes to getting a new car but for safety reasons drivers should always ensure they take time in the midst of the excitement to get a proper understanding of their vehicle before hitting the road," commented a motor industry expert.
