I hate driving my dad around?

I'm fully licensed, and when I started working, my dad started looking around for a car for me. One of my cousin's is a car mechanic and he previously had a Volkswagen Jetta which he gave to his younger brother. So I decided I'll purchase the Jetta from him. 

I had a look at the car, drove it around, and decided I'm going to buy it. So my parents paid for the car, I signed the paperwork and now that my dad is paying for the first year insurance, he's asking me to drive him around since he himself is tired of driving. His job requires him to drive all day, and he's gotten tired. At first I didn't mind, but now, I just go under pressure. He's pretty calm when I'm driving but he refuses to drive my car because its a German car. Now, I'm so used to driving alone when I'm in the car that driving a family member around, I feel like I have to drive perfectly. I don't speed, I'm very serious about my insurance rate and bringing it down as much as I can. I will even avoid driving my car unless I have to, just to bring insurance down. But, I go under pressure. The only time I wouldn't mind sitting in the driver's seat is if my car drives itself lol. But if my dad needs to get somewhere, I'll tell him, you drive, up to you which car you want to take. I drive my car on weekdays when I go to school and work. I feel like such a terrible son for this, but I also feel uncomfortable/under pressure.

I don't know what to do.

    Well friend if your father has helped paid for your car and your insurance you owe him money and you're paying him back by driving him around that's the way it works pay your own bills and then tell everybody else sorry I don't drive anybody else around unless they pay me cash money get yourself a taxi license or a new birth certificate and say sorry you cannot enter my vehicle unless you pay the fare

  • "because its a German car". The solution is staring at you,right IN YOUR FACE.  BUY German CD'S especially where they play the accordion "UmPaPa music"  This is the music you listen to now.  You only need one. And the language of the singing is German.     

    . VW is made in the U.S. or in Mexico.   They have manufacturing plants all over the world...so the only thing German about it, is the name. 

    . as dad helped pay for first year's insurance he feels YOU OWE HIM THAT MUCH. So temporary pain for immediate gain.

    . What I had were BEATER CARS, so that meant hanging wiring, tie wire, and duct tape on the seats and on the dash.  Just make your car look ratty.  It is easy to hang wiring from under the dash so it hangs out.  Even if it is fake wires going to nowhere.   Silver duct tape stuff together because it rattles "That is your story".  Not keeping it DUST FREE AND WINDOWS CLEAN also helps.   Floors were always dirty and I have never done windows.   It is there for the LOOKS (to fool him)  He will want to take less rides in your car so you DROVE HIM OUT. without doing anything.  He will think himself "Better" than to ride around with his kid in his junk car.  

    Don't matter what parents think. It keeps them out of the car.  He never asked to ride again.

    . Insurance rate only goes down by NOT HAVING ANY CRASH CLAIMS WHERE YOU WANT MONEY FROM INSURANCE CO.

    . Speeding is a driving infraction so a speeding ticket is paid to the courts. (basically you are paying the cops wages)  It does not affect insurance.  You got financially penalized by the cops (I refuse to give them a nickel so I don't speed)  If I want to go fast I find a race track(not roadway) and punch it.  Rather drink Whiskey.

  • Drive around all day long? Is he a Taxi driver? I'd sit him down and tell him (in a nice way) what a pain in the a-- he has been. If he speaks "Marine" language, then tell him that he's a pain in your a-- and he needs to get his s--t together.

  • You plan on asking a question, or do we need more irrelevant statements?

  • Quit your whining. They paid for the car and probably are still supporting your *** at home.
