[Solved] Need to know ab reliability/ practicality 17yr old first car
scotty i’m a huge fan! i love your videos & you teach me so much. i know you only have one video on scion frs but don’t talk ab what i need to know. can you pls make a video or let me know if a 14-16 frs would be a alright first car for me @17. something rides nice looks cool & easy to maintenance but i really need to know about the reliability on them & if they will last me. don’t wanna be working and spending $ on it all the time, thanks ur the best:)
See below: Also, be sure to price out the cost of insurance beforehand.
I don't think the FRS is a good first car. Not going to recommend a boring Corolla to you but I must start somewhere. What do you think about the Honda Civic? They are particularly fun to drive nimble small cars and not as impractical (is that a word?) as the FRS. Also, Scotty said the FRS was underwhelming and boring to drive with an automatic if you are wondering his opinion. He tested it out and disliked it, for what its worth. Have you tested one out for yourself? A budget would also help us greatly.
I would look around for a 14-16 corolla. Been shocked at the way the price flucuates on them from area to area. But an 14 corolla with 100k milea on it maintained can still find under 10k and is an easy to maintain vehicle. Personally i would take an older 80s-90s corolla but you said newer so
