Your son has finally saved up $5k in cash from his job as a bag boy at the grocery store.

What do you urge him to get for his first vehicle?
>>
>>14193557
5 Corollas
>>
>>14193557
honestly, at that point I encourage him to move out of the house. By now he's 20 fucking years old for petesake!
>>
Toyota/Honda shitbox

Or just give him my Toyota/Honda shitbox and tell him to save the 5 grand for getting a useless college degree or 5 grand of heroin.
>>
>>14193565
You can easily make $5k bullshitting at a minimum wage job for a year if you live with your parents.
>>
>>14193565
Who the fuck even moves out at 18/20 anymore, it's much more financially viable to hang around to mid 20s now.

My parents forbade me to own a manual so long as I live with them. So with my kid, I'd front him some money to get a manual. If he wants an auto he's on his own

That's one advantage of growing up in yurop, I guess. Nobody is surprised if you drive a manual.

Nah, you're alright.

>tfw parents made me buy my own first car, insurance, and registration

I paid a dude 800 cash for a manual transmission 1995 Geo Metro hatchback and didn't even know how to drive it. I stalled 8 or 9 times on the way home (it was only a few miles) and got my first ticket at 17 years old for expired tags, no insurance, and reckless driving.

Then I proceeded to spend $350 each month on insurance. I ended up not even driving my senior year because I couldn't afford insurance + my parents charging me rent.

Damn it feels good to be 26 with no accidents now.

>>14193557
Buy him a goddamn mid-1990's ford ranger and encourage the fucker to go find work that PAYS.
>>
>>14194508
Ranger Pros
+Decent MPG
+Not enough space for all his stupid friends to do stupid stuff with
+Makes money
+looks reasonable for age and looks like he likes to work. Great car to get a job with.
+Can't go super fast
+Don't get tickets as much
+Won't get stolen like a hotcake
+Won't get carjacked
+Won't break and can be a great car to learn on
+ Lack of stupid JDM shit mods

Cons
-Literally none

Do you want your kid to be a Honda boi racing faggot

If my son were 16 right now instead of 2 I'd buy him a NA 4 cylinder foxbody mustang or a light truck.

If he made the $5000 on his own and wanted to spend it all on a car it would depend on his tastes I suppose. We'd discuss maintenance and repair costs of different options. I'd want him in something safe if it was going to be sporty. Maybe a Cummins?
>>
>>14194598
what are you? yurupoor?

Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, Chevy Caprice, Buick Roadmaster, or Olds Custom Cruiser.

My first car was a Caprice. I hit a tree at 60mph dead-center and walked away.

+1 old small gutless truck

The other added benefit that no one's paid attention to is insurance...young, male, and single he's gonna get ass raped with anything other than a mid 90s or earlier light duty beater truck.
>>
>>14195000
how do rangers compare to s10s? or am i better of with tacoma or frontier?
>>
>>14195020
I can't really say one way or the other for the quality of the vehicles, especially as ranger varied so much over the years...but, I would probably throw my vote at the ranger, purely because the sheer amount of fleet sales makes getting parts borderline free. They both seem fairly dependable otherwise.

True dat. Truck insurance even for a young guy is CHEEEEEEEAP. I was able to get state farm for $240/6mos when I had a two-door four seat Mazda b series

>>14195020
Chevy S-10's and their GMC equivalent are just as fine, though not quite as good looking as Rangers (I think). Old Mazda B series trucks are great as well, easier to fix but they are a bit harder to find parts for. I had a b2600i, I was able to squeeze out 30-35 mpg on the highway by being really careful. Those 4cyl engines are yummy.

I wouldn't go for the Tacoma or Frontier, they are also newer.

For all intensive purposes, mid-90's S10 chevy and Ford Rangers are pretty much the same offering and potential, and have the safety features and reliability you want so you might as well look for either or.

There is some praise to be had about the old 'yota trucks as well like the Hilux, but they are scarce.

Just talk to the kid, there are lots of options available in that market. Manual can be fun (and a little truck is easy to learn on), King Cab can be useful. I wouldn't go for a four door anything.

If you can find one, Jeep Comanche pickups are also cool. Nothing wrong with them and despite their slight scarcity in this world, there are plenty of parts because it is essentially the same platform as the Cherokee.

Just bop around on craigslist until you find an agreeable one. You can probably do
Needs a lot of work for ~500
Needs some work for ~800
Will need work soon for ~1000
Nearly trouble free for ~1500
Beautiful shape and low miles for ~2k

we let people who are only 16 years drive on public roads

the list of stupid shit i did at 16 in my mother Impala is way longer than the post limit


16 year olds make bad decisions and are easily distracted give Jimmy a civic with a 5 speed and he'll more than likely Paul Walker himself

Say I have a car valued at $10,000 and a loan still owed at $10,000 and I can find someone who would directly trade their car for mine but theirs is paid off. What can I do in this situation to go through with it? Tired of the Accord life and looking to get something actually fun.

oh my god. you do know that everyone in europe drives a manual from the age of 17? WHat the fuck is wrong with americans

>>14193557

When you're buying a car think of these things first:
>maintenance
>fuel consumption
>car's mileage

I will just tell you to buy a miata, na because of pop-ups.

>>14194699
Wait wait wait, so what you're saying is you can get a driving license without being able to work with manual transmission ??

What newish car would you guys pick for 10-20k ? Could possibly stretch to 25k. I commute about 200 miles or so a week.

I was thinking fiesta ST, or BRZ/FRS. Not many STs that are used. What other boiracer shit should I do

Any child of mine would have bought a cheap shitbox for far less than that, and run it while saving for a newer one.
>>
>>14203556
Otherwise to this, I'd say for them to get whatever they want, but with a list of suggestions from me. I'd help them look, and drive them to collect it if they wanted.
>>
>>14193557
I would do the same thing my parents did for me and match his money so he has a 10k budget.

I would have him get a nice is300 in manual or maybe a manual G35 sedan.
>>
>>14203621
cuz by the time he is 16 he will have already been driving cars for a few years. If I ever have a son hes going to be into carting and other shit from a young age.
