Her Reckless Family Kept Borrowing Her Car and Now She’s Getting a New One and Doesn’t Want Them to Drive It

An 18-year-old girl wants to stop her family from driving her car because they drive recklessly. She’s worried about what they might do and what they’ll say if she refuses to let them use her car. Here’s what she had to say.

She got a car as a gift

The woman was fortunate enough to have previously had two cars. Her first car, a Mustang, was a gift from her uncle after she received her driver’s license. “He gave it to me as I had gotten my license a bit back, and he knew how much I liked the car, and he got himself a newer car,” she said.

Her family kept using it

However, she could only drive the car a few times because her older sisters and mother would frequently use it themselves, leaving her feeling sidelined. The woman’s mother and sisters had unfortunate accidents in their cars, which meant they had to rely on the woman’s Mustang.

“One of their cars spontaneously caught on fire and the other was t-boned by a drunk driver,” she said. She knew they needed to use her car for work and other necessities, but she was frustrated by how they treated her and the car.

“Despite me only driving a handful of times, I ended up paying for all the maintenance,” the woman said.

Only she took care of it

She took care of the Mustang, cleaning and washing it regularly, even though she was not the primary user. She cared about the car, but her sisters and mother didn’t do anything to help maintain it.

Eventually, her uncle took the car back because the woman’s sister refused to let her drive it. Her uncle saw how unfair the situation was, so he decided to make amends by buying her another car, which was an older Acura with some issues, mainly terrible gas mileage.

The girl was grateful for her uncle’s generosity and thanked him. However, her sisters managed to buy the Acura from her uncle, claiming she was okay with it being sold.

At that point, the girl decided she didn’t care anymore, as she was in college and didn’t need a car at the time. So she focused on her studies and put the car issues aside. Now, as the girl approaches the end of her college year, she is in the market for another car.

She’s banning her family from using it

This time, she wants to ensure her family doesn’t interfere with her use of the car. She plans to only allow her uncle to drive the vehicle. She said, “I want to make it a rule that nobody can drive, even if it’s just down the street, because they smoke, leave trash, and more.”

She believes this rule is important because she wants to visit friends, go to work, and travel without any interference from her family.

She thinks that her sisters will make a big deal out of her decision because she doesn’t plan to let them use it at all. Not even to drive their kids anywhere. 

She turned to the internet for help

One user said, “Hide your keys and don’t let them anywhere where they can be swiped away. Something tells me your family will just barrel through your decision and try to take your car anyway.”

Another person said, “Very clearly explain this to your uncle so that he doesn’t lend out the car to them when he has it since it seems like your sisters have no problem trying to get the car through him.”
