I'm 18 grandparents bought and fully paid of a Scion tC. Had title put in my name so I went and traded it in for $10,000.00 and took out a loan for the other $10,000.00 Just went out today and picked her up. black 06 STi used with only 21,000 miles on it. Only thing it had on it was TT
19, pay for everything except insurence. bought my 05 WRX on my own making my own car payments its my baby, wash it atleast twice a week and wax it often =) plus got pina colado air frshner in it! adds atleast ten horsepower
Im 19 turning 20 next month, My first 2 cars I completely paid for. However, since I started commuting to college I talked to my dad and we agreed he would give me some of the money he is saving on dorming costs and let me put it towards a car. So when I finally sold my 93 integra I started shopping for the WRX. Right now I pay everything but insurance on the car and thats how it always has been.
ill be 18 in 12 days!!!...i pay for everything, with minimal help on the insurence simply because sometimes i cant swing the 280 ontop of the 300$ car payment!!!..plus gas...ugh i hate listing it all out, makes me realize how much debt im in already
In response to no one in particular...
I love when people post/talk about how they "pay for their own car with no help..." and yet they don't pay for all of their own food, rent/mortgage, telephone, cell phone, electricity, gas, water, sewage, trash removal, health insurance, auto insurance, renters/home owner's insurance, HOA dues, tuition, etc., etc., etc... How exactly is that "no help"? Especially since by definition they would never be able to afford the car without somebody else paying for all or part of everything else...
I'm 19, pay for my own car, gas, food, insurance, etc. My parents still help out a ton with a lot of other things, like TheJ mentioned. Still live with them, no rent, no utilities..so I'm making out pretty well. Paying my way through school as well, but I managed to land an internship at TVA which pays me really well, so it all works out. It's tough sometimes..but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
It's true, though. Many people talk about how they "pay for everything" but don't truly understand what it's like to have responsibilities other than the car/gas/insurance to budget for.Originally Posted by WRX_Karl

yea i understand that...its just i think i was one of the people that said i pay for everything lol, but i was talking about everything as in for my car. I wont lie my parents help me out alot but all i was saying is that wasnt what the thread was intended for. oh well
i <3 you all
I worked on a farm from 12 til now (18). From ages 12-16 I didn't have any bills like gas/insurance. After I graduated and got a couple grand, I was able to afford an 06 Impreza. Couldn't afford a WRX that new, but hey, what are you gonna do.
