Most threads I could find about this question were about (somewhat spoiled) teenagers. I'm closer to my mid 20s and I can finally afford a car - whichever one I choose. Since this would be truly my first car - i don't have a lot of "day-to-day" driving experience...
I've been told that I'm out of that "invincible" age I should be fine and 'grow' into it - and car insurance companies seem to think the same thing (costs pretty much the same as for a Focus).
I've seen that young people (teenagers) are recommended to start with the non-turbo version and wait to get the "crazy" out of them, but I've waited for so long as it is!!
So, I think I should be fine as long as i respect it. Do you agree?
