Default Should I buy the scion frs?

Sorry for my English grammar, im an English learner.































Im 18 years old, female. I just graduate last year. And im planning to buy the scion frs. My brother told me that it was a good car. But, is it really a good car? I have my own money, my parents won't help me to buy this car. Thats whyi work hard, and save $10,000.. Is $10,000 is enough for down payment? And would it be safe for a teenager like me? I have a full time job.































So should i buy it?















And if this is not a good car, then can you suggest a car that suitable for a teenager like me. (I don't like old cars, coz i want something i new)

The car is $28,000, maybe $32,000 out the door. At 18 I don't think you can get financing for $22,000.































You will have to look for a car that's $10,000 unless you can get help from someone else.

The car is a good sporty car. its designed to be as light as possible with the best high performance driving dynamics allowable for that price.















for regular use the car is too expensive and has little in features and safety.















if you still want a sports car thats more usable, the hyundai genesis coupe offers more rear leg room, a slightly larger trunk, more power, interior features and a used one can be found for a lower price.















honestly though for regular usage id go with a honda civic or ford focus.

YES! I had a new Toyota Scion TC and just traded it in for a Scion FRS. It's an awesome vehicle knock on wood. I would def go with the FRS! I put 8k down on mine to get my payments lowered. Try to get a good percentage rate. Good luck!

I test drove one and my friend bought one a few months ago.































When I drove it, it had good power and it looked nice. But the back seats were too small and the trunk was very tiny. Also, it is very slippery. If you step on the gas while turning the car, you can easily spin and crash. It is dangerous in rain and impossible to drive in snow. You need to be experienced with rear wheel drive cars to drive this car.































My friend loves his new Scion so far, but his rear view mirror keeps falling from the ceiling of the car. It is not the best build quality and there are many cheap plastics used in making the interior of the car.































If you buy it, just drive slow and be careful. Consider the interior to be fragile. Don't move the rear view mirror around too much and be gentle with the buttons and handles.
