A: The decision to title a teen's car in their name or the parent's name depends on various factors. If the teen is the primary driver and responsible for the car's expenses, titling it in their name can provide a sense of ownership and responsibility. However, if the parent is providing financial support or has concerns about legal liability, titling the car in the parent's name might be preferred.
