    Yessir. My dad's Toyota Tundra has lasted a decade now and is running great with around 200k miles on it. Great on snow.

    I support it; I just gave an alternative to supplement your Teggy suggestion. I myself almost got a GS-R in high school. Only reason I didn't was after further inspection, I found bad rust on the undercarriage Was a nice car otherwise.

    The trouble with enthusiast cars is they are so often bought by enthusiast owners. That alone will doom even the best engineered cars in no time. A maker can invest millions, employ thousands of people to design a car that will work correctly for decades, only to have an aspiring "tUn3r" come along and y0! Instant money pit.

    A clean Honda or Toyota or Subaru or even Mazda is a great car (I currently own one of each). I've no idea how to find one today though.

    My first car was an 81 accord honestly.

    Like this one - fantastic car really. I wish they had stuck with the round headlights.

    depending on where he lives, an integra will get stolen in approximately 3.6 hours of ownership

    Lmfao. Are Integras that great? I'd consider getting one but I really want a RWD for obvious reasons. I know I might not need an RWD, but if you can get an RWD for the same price as a FWD why not go with the RWD? ;D

    Toyota Supra MK3? Great suggestion, not a bad looking car and certainly cheaper than the MK4..

    Just my opinion but, RWD cars like the Supra are too easy to get in trouble with (burnouts, drifting, racing, etc...) I know when I was a kid learning to drive I found it hard to not "show-off" and in a RWD car it's just that much more tempting.

    With FWD you'll have the want but not the means. You can still have fun and learn your limits but you aren't as likely to mess up something as badly.

    In the end you're probably going to go through a few cars anyway. I had 6 cars from 16-22 lol. I just always wanted something different so I would sell mine and get something else.

    EDIT: Oh and yes Integras really are that good

    You should drive as many cars as you can! You'll never really know if you like a car until you drive it.

    Before my dad let me get my first car we test drove a couple dozen cars. All different makes, models and drivetrains. We did this when I was 15 and only had a learners permit too. He would go with me and ask to test drive the car then let me take over before we got back.

    Thanks rage-wrx, michaelwfox, and everyone else ;D you guys are being extremely helpful in this situation and even though I may not get a WRX as a first car, I'd still like to be a part of the club and eventually become an owner someday..

    Rage, what was your first car if you don't mind me asking?

    I'll throw my hat into the ring. Get a '95-'02 Mazda Miata. Yes you will not look cool in it. However, true car people will come up to you and go, "Nice choice." This is a great decision for a few reasons: 1) Mazda's are Japanese and will be more reliable (like the Integra [I got you Mike]) than an American or European car. 2) You'll be able to tweak on it with relatively low consequences. 3)The Miata is arguably the best drivers car that has ever been made. You will learn more about driving and car control from that car than any other you're likely to purchase now, or ever. It is the pinnacle of automotive handling at a low cost. 4) you can still have fun in that car at low speeds.

    There are drawbacks to the Miata though. Obvious ones like storage space and looking like a girl. But kids usually don't realize the value of a Miata until later in life, if at all. That's my $.02 and I WISH I had one for my first car.
