I choose sensibility...I can't do that to my kids.
To be fair, do you think your current car will be worth all that much more than $2,500 when she turns 15 or 16 (I don't know license or permit laws for your state)? It will be a 10 year old car and I can't imagine that exuding arrogance and entitlement from her. It's a good, safe car for a new driver. Just food for thought.
