Understand the financial undertaking your about to embark on. And I agree, this should NOT be your first carGreetings, I'm getting my license soon and i might be getting the X for my first car . Im not really car-savvy and dont know much about cars, but the X is so0o0o sexy. Any tips/advice for a new driver about to acquire such a magnificent beast?
My students consistently say that, yet they still find themselves in easily avoidable accidents. Get a car that you can learn to drive in. Starting off with this vehicle will tempt you to do silly, silly things. Also, starting off with a cheap car such as a Civic will teach you the value of a dollar and allow you to appreciate more expensive cars as you grow older.Im 17. I understand that most teens my age are reckless, but i wouldnt consider myself one.
My first son COMPLETELY destroyed my old '99 Camry. He ran over one of those huge fucking dumpsters at school, straight on... Keep in mine I didn't teach him how to drive.I had a 78 mercury marquis lol. Talk about a fucking tank. But it was the safest car that I could be driving lol. When I got done with that car, it looked like it had just been in the destruction derby lol. Ill see if I can find a pic of it
If you keep it stock, not at all. Even with full bolt-on's it isn't bad. I only spend oil/fluid/tire money on it other than mods. Tires aren't bad at all either if you don't take it to events or HPDE's. It isn't anymore expensive than any other car I have owned maintenance wise.Is it a costly car to maintain?
Good luck with the insurance
Maybe it is just me and my age. My Evo only runs me ~$70 a month. I have never had any tickets on my record though. Always got out of them with defensive or deferred.Oh thats good. I plan to keep it at stock. Haha the insurance will be disgusting.
