Immediate family members? Yes.

Friends? Given the way some of them drive, I wouldn't need any enemies.

I only let one person drive one of my cars, and that was my girlfriend at the time, and it was the Intrepid. After that, I have not let anyone else drive any of my cars.

2002 SC2
Default

I've got an ex-girlfriend who reminds me now and then that I never let her drive the V8 Monza I had back in high school. I'll probably let her drive my '97 SC1, but I haven't even told her that I got a new car yet! Nobody else has driven my Saturn yet, but only because I haven't even had it for a month yet.

Other than my wife and my mechanic, no one drives my Saturn unless it is a totally unavoidable situation. Actually, my wife has not driven it yet. She says its too new.

Once, but he was both my friend and my boss, so I wasn't about to refuse when he wanted to drive a little. It was only a few blocks in town.
Oops, twice, but the second was a lady friend of mine who wanted a little practice with the stick, so I gave her a lesson around my cul-de-sac.
Other than that, only family members, but that's 'cause they pay for insurance.

2003 VUE 2.2L
Default

I used to let my friends drive my sc2 so they could practice driving a stick. Then they all got new cars around the time I bought my vue. They all chose automatics even though they could have got a 5spd in the car they were buying. Then they have the nerve to ask if they can practice on my new car. So no one but me and my wife has ever driven the vue.

My friend Matt was actuallly the first one to drive my car...I didn't know 5-speed, and he drove it off the lot to show me how to drive. Gotta love 1.5 hour test drives and me stalling and bucking while pulling it into the lot again-heheheh. OH well...Matt still drives it on occassion. Although he's a maniac, I trust him a lot. TommyH on here drove mine as well..only once since he's paranoid of red cars. Goof

well, really only me that drives my Saturn. When I lived with my grandparents, my grandfather used to back it out of the driveway and park it in front of the house when I was sleeping and he needed to go somewhere.

Other than that, I taught my girlfriend stick ONCE in a parking lot, but that's it. No one else I know can drive stick.

I've never let a friend drive my car, as I've had no need for a friend to drive it nor have any of them asked. My mom drove my old SW2 once and my dad has driven my current once. My dad used to drive my old K-car quite a bit when I was away at college, so it wouldn't crap out when I got back home for a break.

1993 SC2
Default

I let a friend drive my SC2 once, but that was after too many beers for me. Then I let my mom and dad borrow it this past summer, as they were down one vehicle. My dad was working on his '92 S-10 all summer long, fixing broken hard lines on the fuel sender and repairing rotted body supports on the bed. He always takes a long time on projects like those. Anyway, I had to reclaim the SC2, after my primary vehicle went down.

1993 SL1
Default

I've only let my mom drive my SL1. She said she doesn't really like it because she's so short. She drives a Jeep Wrangler, which with the seat set up so high, lets her sit in a position so she can actually see out. And she said my car is actually harder for her to get into and out of than her Jeep, and she's used to the truck feel of her Jeep. But yeah, I'd probably let a couple of my friends drive my Saturn.....if they knew how to drive stick. I've offered to teach any number of people on my car. My best friend Marc let me drive his 4.5L '86 Cadillac Eldurado America II Limited Edition (one of 150 made) many times, so I should return the favor sometime. And some of my friends (and relatives) I just don't trust after seeing the way they drive. Like someone else said, the car is worth way more to me than to my insurance company.

Yes I let my friends drive my Saturns. All of my friends are good drivers and the cars are made by Saturn. I'm of the opinion that if being driven by somebody other than myself is harmful to the car, I should've bought a different car.
