    Oooh, I had one of those POS's as a first car. Actually was pretty torquey and smooth, when it was actually working.

    But I digress...

    kids at that age should deff. not be driving around in a car like that.let alone mod one!!!i'm young also and i have made my share of mistakes.it takes getting used to a car like this and i just realized it.we all want the best for our kids but saftey is the most important.think of what could happen before you go out and buy your kid a very fast car like the wrx.it's a shame that these parents had to learn the hard way and i send them my deepest sympathy.

    You'd think SOMEONE would have learned after the first accident. I'm sure the parents are looking for someone to point the finger at right now.

    i had a brand new jetta when i turned 16 (99 first year of the "newer" style) the thing had like 120 hp but i still managed to get it going like 140 on the freeway one night. Teenagers are stupid and do stupid things while driving. I'm just glad i didnt get killed or kill someone in my car.
    Stage II and loving it!

    If that's the car I'm thinking of, with the solid light "bar" across the nose and available with faux wood trim, I'm all in. That's a hot vehicle.

    The statistics are terrible and it's always such a shame to read things like this. Sure, accidents happen in all sorts of cars and by all sorts of people but there's a reason my insurance rates for the 02 Impreza are higher than the rates I pay for our newest car, an 07 model from another maker with more HP and costing $10,000+ more to buy. People buy Imprezas and get into trouble sometimes.

    The teens were in a Subaru WRX heading north on East Street and tried to go around a boat being towed by another vehicle, which was turning into a parking lot at the Farmingbury Country Club. The Subaru clipped the back of the boat, skidded sideways and struck an oncoming box truck, Angiolillo said.
    i've seen adults try to pass people in unsafe conditions also, stupidity knows no age. I've had sports cars all of my driving life and have never injured myself or anyone else. Hell i have ONE speeding ticket in the 8 years i've been driving.

    Its not 'young' people, its stupid people. Stupid people and sports cars do not mix.

    The determining factor is how old you act, not how old you are

    By and large i've been in more near-misses with crazy adults than crazy teenagers. regardless of what they were driving...

    This was a shame. There's a raod by my house where stuff likes this happens literally a fw times a year. The road is littered with memorials for accident victims... including some of peple I had known personally.

    It's always sad to see. two 15 yr olds... :-/

    Both are interesting points but insurance companies -- who have access to all the data and need to use it as well as possible to minimize their risk -- disagree generally. Age and general expected safety are linked. Choice of vehicle and expected safety are linked. A teenager with a sporting car is more likely to get into an accident -- therefore teens with sporting cars are more expensive to insure.

    Every time someone under 25 or so asks what everyone else is paying for insurance, the numbers are shocking. There's a reason for that.

    Well, teenagers are more likely to act like teenagers than a more middle aged demographic. That's, of course, true.

    But I would just hate to condemn every teenager. I know a lot of teenagers that have "high performance sports vehicles" that are very responsible with them, and I know many older people that have wrecked numerous cars due to their own irresponsibility.

    I'm very familiar with actuary science and mathematics and agree with insurance companies higher premiums on teenagers (sometimes it's a bit excessive but whatever). But if 50% of teenagers are likely to get into an accident with a sports car it means that the other half of the population is responsible and getting screwed over.

    You don't hear news stories like "Responsible teenager drove his Subaru WRX to school today and made it to class on time". But that doesn't mean there's a lot of them out there.
