Kids in High School are always eager to get their license and then there first car. They want to be able to drive because they can get places faster and with less effort, most teenagers are lazy. Teenagers never have a problem with getting their license, the problem comes when they want their first car. Most kids want a car that is fast and strong that they can show off to their peers. But with the gas prices these days, they don’t understand that any car with a V8 is going to cost a fortune for gas. The average teenager is not allowed to get a new car unless they pay with their own money, and most teenagers don’t have that kind of money by the time they want their first car. Many teenagers want to take their friends places, like camping, up to Tahoe, maybe to the beach. So a smaller sedan is not going to do it. That’s how I came to my conclusion. I’ve decided that an older Toyota pick up is the best first car for a teenager. The old Toyota trucks have 6 cylinder engines which means that they get slightly better gas mileage. They are also very reliable and have been reliable for a very long time. This is good because teenagers normally do not have enough money to fix cars when they break down. They also have a bed in the back of the truck so that you can put your friends stuff in it. Overall, it is economical, reliable, and sociable.
