I can't agree. We are talking about a 16 year old child who has been handed everything and hasn't had to work a day in her life. How does giving the kid a $60k+ first car (and then handing her $10k+ in mods) teach her the importance of hard work and financial responsibility? The answer is it doesn't. Unfortunately, as you point out, there are far too many of these spoiled brats running around already. All you can do is take solace in the fact that you worked for it and are probably a better person for it. (Assuming you did, in fact, work for it )

Just a little bitter that my first car was a 1989 Honda Accord.
