    Saved money from busting my ass working hard all my life, got a job out of college, bought my car when I was 24. Put down a rather large DP and have rather small monthly payments. If I still lived at home I think my car would have about 700hp by now , but rent and bills kinda keep me down.

    I'm 22 now, bought the car in Aug. of 2001. My old Maxima was taking a crap on me, and my parents (whom I still live with, thank GOD, else I'd never be able to afford all the mods) So anyway, my parents wanted to help me get a new car, because I helped them get my Brother into Georgetown for a little cheaper (by busting my ass and getting a full scholarship from my Community College, and Local University) So, I had seen the car like 8 months prior, and Loved the look...... didn't see another one on the road, and basically forgot about it until..... Until one day we were watching TV and saw a Commercial for the WRX. My mom said it was cute, my dad said it sounded like it had a lot of safety features. So we started looking on line, and got info. Went to a dealer when they finally got a new shipment in, and bought it that same day.

    Love my Folks!

    I'm 20, bought the car myself when I was 19. For my age I have a great job and make a decent amount of money. I make the rex's car payments myself. I am also paying for college now too. Boooooooooo to college.

    I'm 23 and this is my second car i'm paying for. This car is a little cheaper than what i was paying for my V6Accord but my insurance doubled when they saw my record .But i thinks its worth busting your ass for money for a nice automobile for now until i get married and get a house.

    37, no house payment, no credit card debt, have never in my life bought a new car, until now that is. bwwwwhahahahahaha.

    they're expensive, but as a new car goes they're pretty much average at around $25k or less. they're not at all expensive for the performance they provide. biggest bang for the buck out there at present.

    insurance is often the killer for those under 25, which is most of the people who drool over the car.

    Great job

    I keep hearing people say "I got a really great job when I was 18-20" im 22..go to college full time and work as a server part time to save for my REX (this fall hopefully) so my questions is what great jobs do you 18 year olds have that allow you to buy a $25k car....."really great job" is such a vague term....

    well, im 21.. and landed my current job when i was 18.... and at the time, the only other job i had before this one paid me 5.35 an hour... which was minimum wage at the time... gotta love grocery stores.... so when i landed a job at 8.50 an hour, i was pretty happy.... and its not bad work, i work for a big company www.americanhotel.com and i do design work/graphics and content for their website, me and one other person do all the content and updates for like 30,000+ products, so it keeps me busy.... and they've been very good to me over the years.... im up to roughly 13.00 an hour, or so... so its not the greatest paying job in the world, but i get to make my own hours, no real deadlines, its not too bad.... and biggest part, i still live with the parents, so thats how i can afford the car.... oh yeah, did i mention that im also paying most of my way through college, which is 14,000 a year!!! damn private schools, ridiculous, thank god for student grants and loans :P i mean, i dont tihnk im doin to bad with this job for where im at right now in my life.... so its a good job.... not going to support me for the rest of my life, thats for sure.... but as long as it gets me through school I'll be happy

    so what are some of the jobs you 18-22 year olds have..... that allows you to pay for the car.....
