Was your first car a gift or did you buy it yourself?

Neither. I don't have a car, but I will have to buy it myself.

First two were gifts. 1st from my parents & 2nd from my grandparents; Both were used. I bought my third car, which was also used. I also bought my my fourth (current) vehicle. It was new. In the state of Alabama, you must be 19 to buy a car.

I assume that is still the law. I had to prove my age to buy my cars. The first guy thought I was too young.

My first car was a gift but my family stole it out from under me so my next car I bought myself

I bought it, but in all fairness...my grandfather did loan me half the $ at 12% interest. I did pay him off in full...with the requisite amount of guilt and gratitude thrown in. The next 40 cars involved no family.

First car was a gift...a 1983 Cadillac Eldorado. Imagine a 16 year old white girl driving around in that. I told my dad that I had to have a black car with 2 doors, not 4. I should have specified that it not be a boat, but I really loved that car.

It will be all me. For now, public transport is enough.

My parents put $1000 towards it for my birthday, but I paid the remaining $1600.

I just got my first car a month ago. Before that, I had been using one of my moms. I'm paying $233/month.

I paid for my first car by myself. It was a total POS that I paid $400 for. Complete rust bucket, almost as old as I was.

Want to compare? My first car was a 1979 Chevy Monza that I paid just under $600. Had to have some work done on it to get it to run properly. I drove it for 3 years before selling it to my sister for $300. She drove it for another 2-3 years.

Mine was an '89 Toyota Celica. The suspension was totally useless, so every time you hot a pothole it would bottom out and you'd hear the body scraping against the tires and road.

It was stolen after I'd had it for about six months, and they rolled it about half a dozen times through a field.

4500 dollar paid in cash, paid for by me. All while working for $7.25/hr part time in high school. I'm a good saver :)

I bought it myself with partial help from a loan from my parents. Which I paid back. I would not have bought that car or taken that loan if my dad had not insisted. I take no credit for that poor choice of horrible, horrible car.

These '93 feet (Made in America) were a gift. I've put many, many miles on them and they're yet to fail me.
