But your right, all these kids my age (19) get brand new everything. How about these spoiled little girls that get brand new bmws and benzs just for turning 16, it's sickening. Just gettin ur license doesn't mean u should drive a 50, 60, 70k dollar car. I worked hard for my Wrx, and still am working hard between upgrades and repairs. People need to learn how to actually work for things they want. I can only imagine what the other generations are gonna be like

Jeeeeeeesuschrist, people.

Some 19 year old's are spoiled as ****, others work hard both in school and have a job so that they can pay for their car.

To each their own.

Does that mean life is fair? That a 19 year old should have the right to a $60k car with no hardship associated with it? No. (at least, in my personal opinion).

I personally know someone that was in an accident almost a year ago, and killed someone. Negligent homicide, but nevertheless, still killed someone. And what are his parents buying him? Either a WRX, Genesis, or something in the $30k range.

People like that shouldn't have a license, but they still do. Just like people that have $60k cars, purchased by their parents, will continue to have such cars.

In my opinion, you can't judge a generation based upon a specific group.

Personally, I think the parents that give their kids $60,000 cars are more responsible than the children. After all, they're the ones teaching their children not to work for things they want.

Well no, you can get a job at 13 where I live and I have been saving money for a long time. I did not pay all 28k I obviously have a mortgage and I owe money. Stop bashing people and jumping to conclusions. I paid and am paying for it with my own money. Thanks have a good one

So if a 16 year old gets a new car from his or parents that automatically makes them ungrateful and undiserving?

Hard working parent who have earned financial freedom for there family's should enjoy it and buy a car for their kid if they can. It sounds like they care. Money and parenting seem like two very different subjects.

Go ahead and be jealous and envious of that if you want. Why not make the decision to be wealthy or even just well off when you are a parent to buy your own child a car when the time comes?!

Don't assume that parent are bad and kids are spoiled if they live a financially safe life.

I got my WRX when I was 19 by selling my old car and adding some money.

If you are 16, you should not be entitled, you should be thankful from my perspective. I was thankful when I got my car.

The idea that you as a 16 year old individual performed $23,000 worth of labor for a new 2013 WRX is not far fetched, it's simply untrue. I'm not gonna sit here and call anyone an ingrate because if you are thankful for how fortunate you are that is one thing. If you think you worked for your car at 16 you are dead wrong. That is over 2500 hours of minimum wage labor.

I am graduating college in a week with my bachelors and I don't think I could've bought one of these cars straight up.

That being said, if you think you DID work for your vehicle, that is simply your adolescent egocentrism at work. You may think you are a pioneer, doing things differently than everyone else and deserving of what you get, and also that you are an adult.

None of these are true. I'm 22 and I'm still not sure I'm an adult.

And as a word of advice, if you fight with the old people on Nasty Sock, they always win.

Car loans are really easy to get and can even have a co-signer on them, 16 year olds parents, for $20,000+ loan anyway.

It's not that far fetched to have a young Subie owner.

Why are we even posting this ****? Who cares how we got a car and who deserves it and blah blah.

Is this not a place for the Subie family to join in celebration and chit chat about our passion for cars?!

Because a 2013 wrx is too much car for a 16 year old. /discussion.

I can't help but thing of those few people in the extreme sports world or even those people slightly competitive saying that when they were twelve like Travis Pastrana motorcycle racing is too much. My motorcycle is too much motorcycle or car or whatever.

I see an opportunity to be a better driver early on in life and possibilities of great magnitude. The world doesn't owe you anything.

Why the hell is everyone so judgmental and negative?

It is possible to learn responsibility before the age of 16.

rich - Parents were or you were?
spoiled - Sounds like it.
snot nose - Kleenex?
irresponsible - Who cares?
non deserving - Who is?
spoiled brat - Probably (but how would you know? No life experience to compare it with)
whom was handed everything - Before the age of when you got your first job? Yes.

LOL, and I do not care either way.

I have the pleasure of doing emergency tow calls for my shop. I can't tell you how many accidents I see caused by some kid who can't even grow a mustache being a jackass in his 'sporty' car. V8 mustangs, 240s, wrx, rsx, the occasional sti, m3 etc..

I'm not asking for the world to give me anything, aside from a safe place to drive. And when an unexperience kid gets behind the wheel of a relatively fast car.. more times than not OTHER people suffer.

I was a young dumb kid once. I bought a mkI aw11 as my first car when I was 16 for $450. When I was done with it, it made 286rwhp. I drove it like an idiot and endangered my friends and those around me. There are too many idiots on the road to be confident driving at such a young age, and contributing to it doesn't make it any better.

Sounds hypocritical.... Can we please get back on topic? I'm 20 with a 2008 Wrx and I absolutely love it. (Regardless of the new turbo in 09). My last car was a 2.5impreza loved climbing the impreza latter.
