I bought my car off my mom for 2500 back in 02. She gave me a pretty good deal BUT Then the motor went, then the tranny went. I paid for both not to mention insurance since i was 17 (i'm 21).
My parents did however lend me money for the tranny rebuild and some insurance money. And that was all paid in full. Everything in or put on my car i bought too.
I'm glad my parents just didn't give me the car/money.
It dosen't really bother me when parents buy everything for thier kids.
Theres nothing like the pride in having paid for your own things. It sucks for them that they won't have that.
