Did your parents buy you a car?

My 15-year old daughter has the mistaken belief that I'm giving her my Fiat next year when she's 16.

My parents did not give me a car.  Ever. They wouldn't even let me buy my own car because they said it was an unnecessary expense. 

On the other hand, my husband received a brand new car when he turned 16.

Did your parents buy you a car?  Are you going to buy your kid(s) a car?

No they didn't. My mom has never driven. I went to driving school because I was sick of public transportation. I will get my kids a car when they are ready.

My parents gave my nothing.

If I can I will at least help my kids get a car.

I got a 1967 Buick for my graduation/18th bday gift in 2001.

I have a 14yo so we’re thinking about vehicles. His grandpa already has a truck waiting that he’s going to give him. If he doesn’t want it We might get him a $500-1000 beater for a car.

Nope. I got to drive a family car. I bought my own car when I could afford one. It will be the same with my kids.

No, my dad co-signed a loan for me, but I responsible for car payments and insurance.  We have a car that we're going to let the boys drive, but they will pay insurance costs and maintenance as well as keep it clean.  It will still be our car.

My dad was going to but he died. I had to buy my own. My mom refused to help at all. She actually took money from me. Ugh. I will buy my son a newer car for his 16th birthday.

They allowed me to use a car they owned and cared for, but it wasn't mine. I haven't gotten that far with DD.
