Great On Gas — This car has been my first car, and I would recommend it as a first car for any responsible teen. Being such a small car, you have to constantly be aware of the people around you on the road. It's taught me a lot of good driving skills so I can be as defensive as possible. As long as you treat this car right, it will live (what seems like) forever. I have had a lot of fun in this car. Being my first, I spent a summer ripping around in it all day and night whenever I wasn't working. It's not power steering, but you don't need it, I'm an average sized female and I can turn the wheel with one hand. It fits anywhere. Not much need to worry about finding a parking spot, I managed to fit between two SUVs parked in small car spots out infront of Starbuck's on numerous occasions. The car saved me from having to be up for the 6:45 bus to school (about 25km out of town) by being so cheap on gas and insurance that I was able to pay for it while working only 6 hours a week.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: peppy

Cons: slow

1988 Suzuki/chevy Sprint — I own a little 1988 chevrolet sprint which is actually manufactured by suzuki. This little car has a 3 cyl 1000cc engine and around 65 horsepower tuned up a bit, it has a 5 speed manual transmission, and actually goes pretty good. the car must get at least 45mpg and i rarely have to gas it up when i do its less than 20$! Because its front wheel drive and lightweight about 1900lbs? its extremely fun little car to drift on ice and i am considering adding a turbo and rebuiding the tranny to give it over 100 hp and making it hook up better. The overall appearance of this vehichle is unimpressive and it has a lame interior but would make a hillarious tuner car because nobody expects a sprint to do 0-100km in 8 seconds!

Pros: Cheap,  Economical,  Good Handling,  Stops Quickly,  Fun little Car!

Cons: Small,  No Room in Back,  No Airbags,  Need be in Fourth  Gear for 60kpm!

Cheeeep — A great first car, very forgiving - drove it to "Pick-n-Pull" and got $1 for it when it would not pass smog anymore. Easy to fix - and was how I learned to do clutches, brakes, bearings, cylinder head, timing belts, alternators, starters, etc.

Pros: 45+ MPG

Cons: 2 doors, Hard to smog... everyone seemed to hate me when I drove it!
