I'd love to buy DD a decent car when she's old enough. I really do home our finances are better by then so I can
My parents gave me and my sister upto 15k to buy a car.
I didn't get a new car, but more than good enough car definitely reliable.
Im actually very grateful because not very many of my friends had good cars (just old bombs they brought themselves) which were ALWAYS breaking down! So glad that wasn't me ahaha

We will contribute as much as necessary for them to drive safe, reliable cars. Our kids are all 4 yrs apart tho so we have time to make them save something first

I've bought my two oldest boys their first car both about around $3000, I'm currently looking for a little run around for Ds3 for Xmas, I didn't expect them to contribute as they were in years 11/12 when I bought them.
As a single mum I have been enormously proud I have been able to do that for them.

DD is nearly 2 and I'm already saving for it. She will have to contribute but I want her in the safest car possible with every safety feature. I didn't spend 18 years keeping her alive just to have her die in a sh|tbox with no airbags because that's all she could afford. I also wouldn't want her broken down on a country road somewhere.

We will definitely contribute if we don't buy it outright. I don't want our kids driving around in 5000 car at 16. I'd rather something modern, safe and reliable. I'm sure there will be a multitude of safety improvements in the next 13 years before DD1 can get her licence.
Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

We will def contribute...i want him to be safe and would prefer to help out and make it safe than a bomb.
We will prob go 1/3's with DS, ex and us when he gets his liscence...so when DD gets to that time...DH and I will prob put in 2/3 and her 1/3 so it is fair.
However, my one concern is that I am not sure if DS will have time for paid work so unsure on how that will pan out. He will be coaching but that is volunteer...so we will have to play it by ear.

I don't think 'old' means unsafe IMO. Our daughter will probably have a mazda of some description. Due to her parents being car enthusiasts. The safety in them isn't crap just because they are a 1970's car

We will be contributing x amount and if they want something better they can add pay the extra.

We will buy them their first...that doesnt mean it going to be brand new ! As my experience is first cars always crash ! It will either be second hand or one of our cars
