So, my parents are making me buy my car, insurance, gas and pay for its maintainence before I'm allowed to drive. I'm a junior in high school, and always busy with school and grades so is it worth all that trouble to have a car in high school?

its worth it. not much trouble at all, actually. just as long as (if you're buying used, which im assuming you will) it doesnt need any IMMEDIATE big work to it, like a new set of tires or transmission. for a HS junior, THOSE could be a financial bother.

That's up to what you want to spend your money on. If you want to spend it on other stuff, than no. You might as well take a bus and save money. But, if you want to drive yourself places (which I would, and do) than it is very much worth it.

I used to work, but because of *immigration problems* I can't now, and don't really have time to, I have a TON of homework from AP classes

it totally depends on your area (can you walk places), friends (who do you hang out with and do they drive), and your finances. if you can swing it, its worth it.

Useful for dates and such, and just going wherever you feel like.

Sucks because everyone asks you for rides and gas is expensive.

meh, depends where you live.

public transportation in berlin is awesome, it actually takes longer to get places by car. so, I never bothered getting a car nor a license (1300 Euros)

It depends how many friends you have that drive. I was the first of my group of friends to get a car and things changed tremendously for me. So it was definitely worth it. If you have a ton of people to drive your ass around whenever you want, you could always hold off getting a car a little bit longer.

looks like you answered your own question.

If you can't work then you shouldn't get a car in your situation.

It really does blow being poor, in high school and jobless. I have a car that my grandad bought for me but I don't have the cash to buy an insurance because I can't find a job.

It's worth it if you can work for it if you want a girlfriend. Dating is a bitch without a vehicle, I learned that when my broke down for a while. If you can bum rides to chill with your friends and don't care about a gf yet, don't waste your time and just enjoy hs.

lol tire biters. my dog was called that, before a car hit it. i love irony.
but anywho, if you DO get a car, thats the beginning of money leaving your pocket as soon as it gets there. make sure you have AT LEAST enough money to keep no less than half a tank in it every week (what i did anyway) and change the oil as needed. and idk if youll have to pay your insurance or not.
