So...BIL (almost 19) has a fight with MIL, moves into FIL's house. We (my SO and I) gave BIL a car about a year ago. We paid for his insurance. This was so he could go to school and/or get a job. Well, he ended up doing neither, and totaled the car.
The only reason we gave BIL a car was because we bought me a mommy car, in which FIL helped with $400 of the down payment.
So...BIL (almost 19) has a fight with MIL, moves into FIL's house. Ok fine. No biggie.
Christmas time rolls around, FIL decides not to "do" Christmas do to economic issues. Fine. He decides that forgiving our debt ($400) is our present. Yay! Great for us.
So now he (FIL) writes us an e-mail saying that BIL "deserves" a car, and that he is starting a savings account to help get him one, and that we need to pay him at least $200 of the $400 that we "owe" him, and that this money will go into the savings for BIL.

Say that you now need to be reimbursed for the insurance money you spent on your BIL and for the car you gave him, so that you can now pay your FIL back the money he gifted to you I bet that will shut him up real quick

I'd pay him back and I'd never ask or allow him to do anything for me again! Wow! I just can't believe he is doing that! Too bad you don't have the loan forgiveness in writing! (I assume). And when BIL totals out this car, your FIL can do it all alone next time.
