I got my Tahoe "handed to me" when I was 16, in 2004. It was my second vehicle, I still have it to this day and it looks better than prob 85-90% of other 12 year old vehicles out there that have been driven on a daily basis with 160K miles on it (in areas that receive snow anyway). I took care of it because I loved it and take pride in keeping the things I own looking and working well. I understand that I am the exception to circumstances like this, but please do not think that all people who have things they could not afford themselves are bratty or entitled.

My brother on the other hand has had a total of 8 vehicles in his lifetime (he is only 20 years old). He ruined the 96 Dodge intrepid he got when he was 14(my first car, which was also in pristine condition when he got it handed down) , a 94 dodge dakota that was in good shape, a '00 cavalier, a '98 f150, 2005 F250, 97 Ram, and the 2007 F350 he got is what we traded in on my Camaro (first vehicle I've gotten since 2004) since he got it November of last year and already needed 7K in repairs. All the other vehicles he had were either dented up like crazy or had transmission failure as a result of him driving like an idiot, offroading, and generally not giving two ****s about it.

We both lived under the same roof as children and have the same parents, but treat our belongings in completely different ways.

Who can explain anything these days when parents are beating/killing their own children, you think that others might not mistreat their cars ? Maybe theyre lease cars and they dont give a ratsass. I take care of my own business and let the others take care of theirs.

I agree completely. My camaro is beat to hell, but i bought it like that. i treat it like its worth more than any other car in the world! I hate it when people who have nice cars dont appreciate them. its not just ppl who have their cars bought for them, i know a few ppl who had their cars bought for them, but they dont treat them like crap. But these ppl really grind my gears. if they dont care what they drive, give ME the awesome car!!

Who cares?

It's just a car.

You can't save them all.

Yeah, but even if it is "just a car," this is just failure to take care of your own property and an inability to drive. And it isn't like this is a 15 year old vehicle with accumulated problems and damage, it is 2 years old.

If you ever meet the driver, and if by chance y'all become friends, remind yourself constantly to never let him/her drive your car

You should see my moms car... she wonders why the Camaro is hands off. She's smacked up every car she's had except the Solstice... didn't have it long enough!

My favorite was the Bravada, dropped her lip stick, picked it up and BAM... right into a light pole in a parking lot!

This is just one example. Like I said, some ppl just don't care about cars... Point a to point b.

There is a difference between the two. Then again, this is all moot if it was just handed to him.

I am currently in the process of buying a Camaro and it will be just a point A to B car. Only reason for buying it is the fact that it is a relatively cheap muscle car that looks better than a Mustang. To most people out there, these are just cars to be driven.
