What Was Your First Vehicle?

We wanna know - what was your first car? Did you sell it on OfferUp? Or buy it on the app? Smiley Happy


My first car was a Honda Accord - it was the 25th-anniversary edition and I loved that thing. Drove it until it had 250k+ miles on it, then sold it to an old friend for next to nothing years before OfferUp existed. Had OfferUp been an option for me back then, I probably would have tried selling it to someone other than my friend!

Chevy Malibu! Drove that thing forever and then gave it to my brother when I went away to college. Smiley Happy

Hah! @0317 @Elin My first car came from my sister. Keeping the cars in the family! 


That old car of mine lasted 4 days after the transaction was complete. The old friend was texting while driving and rear-ended someone 2 days after getting the title in her name, it was totaled.

@Mj_206, texting and driving is unbelievably dangerous and far too common!

Aaaaaagreed, @cyclomatic! Personally, I find it to be selfish. If I'm in a car with a driver that is texting, I enjoy giving them a stern mom-voice lecture Smiley LOL

@Mj_206 I've never been in the same car with a driver texting. I would have no problem demanding them to pull over and let me out!!
