    Ive had to pay for every one of my cars. My firs vehicle was a 1975 Dodge Dart. I had to almost completely restore it because it had sat so long. The floor board under the drivers gas and brake pedal was rusted out so I could see the road, the paint was all dull now to a really nice baby poop brown, tires were all dry rotted, all hoses and lines that were rubber were cracked and split. But I bought it a year before I was able to drive it and took my time fixing it, total purchase was about 1500 dollars and sold it a year after driving for 4000, it had the original 15k miles. Gotta love a car that the auto maker has to stop building cause the motor was to reliable and they didnt make any money on service or repair (slant 6 225)

    My thoughts have already been said.

    Take what you get and by happy learning on it. No need to get anything remotely fast for your first car.

    Take care of whatever you are given....never know when you might need another hand out later in life.

    It's also more expensive to own and run than the Honda. The Honda has better insurance rates, fuel consumption, and rated reliability.

    lol, He was merely asking for info here, hahah not a flaming. But on that note, driving maturity is different for everyone. I know several people who drive faster high performance cars that are younger than me and have never had a problem. Regardless, it's better to be safe (and save the bundles on insurance). I would go with as cheap of a honda that's in good working order as you can find. Drive that for a few years and save up your cash, then you'll have the behind the wheel time and money to upgrade! Plus a good argument for your dad, should you be accident free after a few years.

    Well said!

    Hope I didn't come off as flaming the op, interest in a great car should never be shot down. Its just a lot of car for a first ride, and almost every first car (or in my case a jeep cherokee) takes a unfair amount of abuse.. no matter the intent of the owner.. it just happens that way

    dig whatcha get and run the wheels off it while you save up the coin for something you'll really enjoy.

    nothing wrong with generous parents. if youre careful with your first car and baby it to death you can be alright and drive a WRX. Do a lot of research on any car you get and if it is indeed a WRX then youre in the right place to learn!

    I've been driving a 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis that my mom and dad gave me in 2006 when my mom got a new Mercury Montego. And I've taken damn good care of it and was thankful for it. Be happy with what you have and don't worry about what you want. It's all like the Mick Jagger sang... "You can't always get what you want, but if you try some time, you just might find, you get what you need."

    Now that I've graduated from university and am one of the lucky few in the class of 2009 to have a proper job I'm going to buy a 2010 WRX sometime this spring/summer. And I'm gonna pay cash.

    Trust me, these things work out.
