1991 Jeep Cherokee Laredo that was passed down from my mom to move. I still love that car. I remember going 100 mph and not realizing it since the car was so light.

The first vehicle I drove was my mom’s 2000 Mazda MPV (mini van)  It was awesome because it could fit all my friends!

My mom bought a car for us to share which was a 2004 Honda CRV.

My first very own car was an orange 2004 Mazda 3 Sport which my now husband bought for me.  We recently sold that and got our 2012 Ford Escape so that was my very first brand spanking new car!

2001 chevy cavalier. that was an amzing little car – it was going over 80k miles and had never required more than basic maintenance.

Unfortunately it got totaled and I had to replace it.

first car i drove was a 1990 Honda Accord that thing was a beast untill my father ignored my comments about things needing to be fixed I sold it with a cracked head and bent body for $500. First car I owned myself was a 2000 dodge neon. that car was my favorite I sold it when I moved to live with the hubby 3 states away. Its still in good running shape with basic maintainance. Only major repair done to it was a new transmission apparently the old one didnt like lots of burn outs and passes down the track. I had it lowered and all kinds of stuff done to it. She was my baby

Still have my first car.  It’s a 2001 Subaru.  My brother learned to drive in it, and each time he came back from driving it it had a new dent.  Hence its name the Pinata.  Brother’s gotten it in at least 3 accidents, mom’s gotten it in 1, dad got it in 1 or 2.  This poor thing looks like crap. The first day I drove it the door panel fell off, and the front bumper’s held together with duct tape.  Oh, and the inner panels of the doors have holes in them, so you can see the styrofoam inside of the door.  When you open the trunk, the plastic liner flaps down and hits you in the head, so you have to duct tape and pop it back into place.  This thing’s been banged around so much it’s not even at 100,000 miles yet, and it’ll be a miracle if I get 2 more years out of it.

 

Oh yeah, and it overheats sometimes.  Which is really awesome when it’s 100+ degrees outside and I have to blast the heater to dissipate the heat.

89 Jeep Wagoneer.

 

It had wood paneling on the side. Vanity plate said ‘Woody’. I loved everything about it, except that it would always break down in the bad part of town.

I had a tiny 98 Hyundai Accent hatchback. The thing quit within a 3 months of getting it. It was complete junk.

My parents then bought me a ’92 Honda Accord. I drove the crap out of thing all the way through high school and college. It survived my neglectful ways (not getting it serviced regularly) AND driving through a plate glass window. After I bought my 2008 Jeep Liberty, my parents kept my Honda as a junker car to pass around the family whenever needed. It still runs just fine.

Hondas really are great cars.

It was a ’94 Nissan Altima. My parents bought it in 2006 for $2800. I loved it…until I hydroplaned and rear-ended a Suburban that was stopped in the middle of the road, waiting to turn left. Cry

I just got my first car in May (I’m only 22) its a 2000 Honda Odyssey (yes, a minivan). The carfax claims that it is green but it’s really a bluish gray color. My parents lent me the money to buy it for graduation because its the same make a model as their minivan which is what I drove in highschool when I really needed a car (everyone in my family hates driving the Honda Accord, it’s waaay too touchy).

1994 Saturn… I had that thing from when I was about 20 until about 4 months ago. I drove that thing into the ground. She gave all she could, and I sent her off to be with a family member who can fix it up in due time. I’ve since upgraded, but I’ll always remember my first car.
