Ideal First Car (At Age 18)

Fri Sep 09, 2005 8:05 pm

Hi guys,

Coming to the latter end of my driving lessons, im soon to be taking my test. Im 18 at the end of the year, and am looking at purchasing a motor-vehicle for the use of transport  Wink

What experiences have you had with small, reliable cars?

I'll be using it to commute around southern UK next year for work placements, and therefore it has to be reliable. Also, modification potential would be an advantage  Smile Big grin

Cheers,
Tom

Id look at something with a small engine, maybe a ford fiesta 1.1 or a corsa 1.0 maybe a nissan micra, wouldnt go brand new, insurance will sting you.

Shop around for the insurance, i found churchhill are very cheap, the new corsas are very nippy indeed, my mate has one only a 1.2 but shit, it certainly moves, might be worth, getting one of your parents to be the policy holder and have you as the named driver, get some experience on the roads then next year with a years experience, get your own policy, it should go down

I see a lot of adverts in the UK with a free one years insurance, so that would be a good deal, Go for a car with low fuel consumption as well fuel prices arent looking too good either.

I had a classic Mini great on insurance and fuel, and cheap to fix, and if you live in town you can park anywhere.

To qualify for these there is usually a catch, i.e. you have to be 19/ y/o.

There is no way i could stretch to a new car anyway, just been looking at some Fiat Punto reviews, very nice...

couldn't agree more. as a young, new driver, your insurance costs will be horrendous - possibly as much as 1000 GBP, depending on where you live, even for something basic.

If you can ger something like a Fiesta it should be cheap to run, cheap to service/repair and easy to drive, plus enough room for you and some mates.

As much a sit ewould be nice to look for something different or flash, save that for the next car when your insurance will have hopefully gone down a bit, and you may have some more money from working, etc to pay the bills.

If you want a reliable car Toyota Yaris is a one to consider - great 1.0 engine, the suspension is a bit too soft I'd say, but otherwise excellent car. The new model is coming soon so you might be able to get some sweet deal on the present one.
Punto's craftmanship and reliability are just pathetic. The 206 looks great... especially if driven by a female, but that's about the only positive thing one can say about it.

Iv got a new shape renault clio and its a superb car to drive, and very reliable. I believe its in the cheapest (if theres such a word) insurance group.

I think your insurance will be expensive for the first year or 2, I shopped around and I still had to pay a stupid amount. This second year has been alot cheaper though  Smile

Bloody hell 1000GBP for a 206 or a Twingo? I pay $1200 per year for 2 cars. A 5.7L V8 and a 4.3L V6, and im well under 25 (the next time my rates will be lowered)

Glad I dont have to deal with being raped by European insurances...

I personally like the 206, I get to drive this alot when I am in Poland. Im no fan of the Micra and the Yaris though.

Have you thought about getting your insurance on your parents policy ?

Mines on my parents and financially it works out a lot more beneficial this way, I know people can then spout that you won't be building up any no claims bonus but I'd rather be saving 500 odd pounds (sorry I don't have a GBP sign on my laptop) when I'm 18 , stay on your parents for around 5 or 6 years and then only be paying 200 odd pounds at most more than someone who had there own insurance when I'm 24. I could totally wrong so please do tell if you can crunch the numbers any better, but looking at it like that above it appears better financially for me. Only works of course if your parents trust you enough lol.

Regarding the choice of cars, well there are so many choices in this market it'll be fun making one. If you can, try and get 2nd hand of a current model that's sold for new or the series that has just been replaced. I say as new as possible simply for safety reasons, there have been some great advances in car safety, but simply because the cost of doing so, mainly on insurance it makes this choice less desirable and thus we see so many students driving rust buckets. I'm sure though you could sway your parents into investing a little bit in a newer car, at the end of the day I'm sure they would rather have you alive than a couple grand in there pockets.

This was in 1990 and I could fill the tank up for $8 and go 600 miles on one tank. Best of all, it was exempt from emissions test. With the rear seat folded down, I was able to haul a Hammond B3 organ as well as drum sets, PA systems and even a Christmas tree.
That car never gave me any problems what so ever.


Mines was a beige stationwagon just like this one on ebay right now. Mines was in much better shape though.

Which in turn shared an engine with the Porsche 912 (an early 4-cylinder variant of the 911), which in turn shared an engine with late model 356s, which in turn was derived from the Type IV Beetle engine...once again with Porsche, it all goes right back to the Beetle.

As a Porsche enthusiast myself (I like most of them, except for these new pieces of crap they make now), I must say that the 914 gets a lot of static it doesn't deserve. Due to its small size, low center of gravity and mid-engine layout, this car can outhandle just about any other Porsche ever made. And if you add a 911 engine to it (as the factory did in the 914/6 and 916, or if you're really crazy like a friend of mine and put in a 3.0 liter turbocharged engine with 300 hp), you will have a street-legal race car.

In my life, I have only been really scared twice in a car. And this wasn't accident related.

The first was in high school, when a girl I knew took me for a ride in a Gremlin X w/the 304 in it, and drove like hell all over the Southwest Freeway in Houston, in 1977.

The second was in a 914/6 that a buddy of my dad owned in the early 70's. Now the 914/4 is moderatly quick, but that 6 is a heck of an engine. We were going for lunch, near the U of H campus, and I asked my dad if I could ride w/him. He tore around campus like a bat outta hell. Wow. I think I just got goosebumbs, thinking about that car.

In college, my buddy got his first 914, a '75. We used to give this rich guy who owned a Delorean hell, 'cause his 914/4 could out run it.

I would go with a used car. As a new driver, you will be prone to driving mistakes. Your insurance will be lower if your investment is small and if you carry the minimum coverage. Your best friend is an honest mechanic that restores cars on the side. Ask around, the last thing you want is something that goes well with tea and sugar.

Actually, europe has far stricter insurance rules than the US. Might be a little more expensive, but at least it can't happen to you that you get hit by someone who is not or underinsured and gets away with a $200 fine while you sit on $6000 damage to your car.

It's a very good car to begin with. It look small, but when you bend the rear seats you can put loads of luggages or anything. The only thing is that you can't have both the luggage space and four people onboard at the same time Big grin

Its a great car, but just decide whether you feel fine about driving a left-hand drive car. Not sure if that will hurt your insurance quotes even more too.
