We got sd a car when she was 17. She snuck and drove it when her father and I were at work and completely totaled it. When she was 21 she had saved $1000 to buy a car, and we gave her $1500 to buy another. Four weeks ago she asked dh for a new car for Christmas. Christmas day she had an accident and now it needs $800 in bodywork. It's a new car, haven't even gotten the title in the mail yet!
I refused to pay for it. I think the story behind the car getting wrecked is total bs (because of course it's not her fault) I think she needs to save and get the car fixed herself, because that's what adults do.

She's 21, she needs to pay for her mistake on her own

Yes. Even though she swore when she got the new car she had full.

She needs to pay for the repairs. There is no reason anyone else should.

It's a 2012. One previous owner. Only 60,xxx miles mostly highway miles. She got it just after thanksgiving. So she hasn't even had it a month yet.

I totally agree with you. Driving is an adult responsibility, and adults need to pay for their mistakes.

Life lesson about carrying full coverage on a car less than 5 years old. Sucks to be her but at some point her parents can't keep bailing her out. If not she will never build any self reliance and character.
