She's already buying her own insurance.

Then she should be able to buy her own car, too! My daughter got her driver's license a couple days ago, missed two on the test for being too conservative (which is a good thing), waited for a person to cross the road completely when walking in a crosswalk, and left five extra feet between herself and a car in front of her. In short, dad taught her right. Last night, we went out to get ice cream, had her floor the PT Cruiser up the hill to feel what it is like (and because she hadn't ever gotten to do it), had a nice smile on her face.

Send her back to driving school. Then make her buy her own car and pay her own insurance. Worked for me.
My wife is a born again teenager at 46.
She never had a driver's licence up until three years ago.
She paid her own way through driving school and got a discount on insurance for doing so.
She is a good driver--just goes above and beyond,LOL!
So she is going through the same crap any kid with a new licence would go through--speeding,tailgating,music cranked,etc that led to two at fault incidents,two speeding tickets and too many parking tickets for my liking...
 
However reality has set in when the insurance Co. made her sign a letter of exclusion and is no longer allowed to drive the 300C.Her status went from two stars to zero in one year.
She is lucky her licence was not revoked--but she needs to drive to bring in income to the household.
Sux making payments on a car she cannot drive (But I drive it everyday,nya nya nya)
She is paying her own insurance on the Escort and will transfer the insurance on the K once it is ready for the road--or the Escort craps out permanently--which ever comes first.
That outa slow her down and realize the consequences of not paying attention to your driving..
Maybe the 300C was too much of a car from the start.
So to simplify things,an old basic car with fewer distractions and much less horseower outa make her focus on the task of actually driving the damn car.
The 300C is very close to being paid off,so we are keeping it.
Besides with my clean record,the insurance on the 300 for me is very cheap.

Well that's good news!  You racked on the miles on it.  Needs a good polishing.  Which remonds me, I need to measure the bumper.  When you come down and you bring the 300, maybe I can run around it with a machine and brighten her up a bit.  I hate black! LOL  You can hand glaze it when done.  There's a deal.  Last time I saw it, it was due for a good polishing.

My bad, I thought it was the kid that was having the lack of respect for a machine, not the matured kid.

After the last incident,the front fascia was replaced and painted to match.
Both headlamp assemblies got replaced since they were damaged.
Those puppies cost 1500.00 each being the projector HID units.
I had to wait two weeks for them to show up.
During that waiting time,the body shop gave the car a good buff and wax to match the fresh paint up front.
Well worth the box of donuts I gave them.
