First cars are all fun and games until you run into a problem and have to take them to a mechanic. Particularly, learners with little experience are likely to run into problems with the transmission. You might blow a gear shaft by raving the car excessively, ruin the clutch shafts by shifting gears improperly or damage the cogs with bad first-time driving habits. It happens to the best drivers out there, and you shouldn't be hard on yourself as you try to learn more about the car.
