Recently my girlfriend has been asking to use my Civic a lot cause she likes the attention and likes my car. Well I don't have a problem with her liking my car but I hate here driving it when I'm not with her. I don't know how she treats it over bumps or anything like that. I don't know how she works the clutch or anything. When she drives with me she does ok but she is probably paying more attention since I am in the car. Now, I wouldn't mind if she drove a decent car that I could fix up for her so I could have some fun in her car also, but she drive a VW Jetta which there isn't a whole lot for it. I want her to get a 98 Eclipse so I can trick that out and drive it.

Well I just wanted to ask all the guys out there who have girlfriends if you let your girl drive your car? If you don't what's your reasoning?

yeah, she can drive it... but its only an automatic so its not a big deal.. i dont think shes driven it since its been dropped.... and she hated the exhuast before i had the silencer on it


but once i get the b20z auto to manual swap... she is NOT getting behind the wheel.

I know my girl treats it with tons of respect, so yeah I can say that I trust her. It would just suck if something happen, if its me who fucks up my car thats one thing, but if its someone else, it would be a mess.

I've let my gf borrow my car 1 time w/o me being with her in one year. I've let her drive it maybe 13-20 times in 1 year total. She's just like your girl, "I like the attention. Its fun to drive. It looks better than my car." I got my gf to buy a GS-R. Its been a good and bad thing. Its awesome cause now if I don't want to buy her flowers and jewelry I just go buy some car parts for her. The bummer is that if I mess-up installing then I'll hear about it! I drive her car a little more than she drives mine.

The bottom line...when I ride with my gf in her car I occationally talk to her about what she'll have to do when we: lower her car, rims, tires, etc. I'm having her practice what to do already as if she had the stuff on her car. After a few times of telling her why I don't pull within a foot of the curb when I park, don't pull all the way up to the curb till my front wheels hit, and don't back up till my rear wheels hit the curb she's learned how I like to treat my car. Of course I was concerned when my gf took my car cause her speed demon friend went with her. I just didn't want to have to hear, "Well we came around that one corner and the truck was in the middle of the road. I swerved and we're lucky we're alive. Sorry about your drivers mirror. The truck took it off."

A car I can replace...but my gf I can't. If she drives the car and wrecks it or gets hit I'd rather be with her.

What year Jetta? There are tons of stuff you can do to them, even the 2.slow engines have some potential.

I'm lucky, my g/f can't drive stick. I do let her ride my quad (02 Honda Rancher ES 4X4), but she has managed to get a flat and mess up the front brakes.

I let my girl driev my car. she knows how i feel and i am sure she would pay for anyting that she messed up. But just the other day she went home and i let her take my car because she had a flat and was on a dounut. so she used my car while i fixed that for her. But she always take bumps slow . but she loves the way my exhaust sounds !

well just about every girl I know have asked this question " Can I drive your car?" This is the question I always try to advoid.

I wouldn't let anyone drive the car no matter how hot-n-sweet she is......as long she had her own car that is a STICK!.


Other than that take her to a parking lot and teach her lessions. then go to back roads and such till you feel comfy for her to use your car whenever......

But yeah I wouldn't let anyone drive my car since it's gotten sooooo bad-ass now. ha ha
