I have inadvertently made her afraid to even ride in the car, let alone drive it.

My wife is actually very careful with both of our vehicles. I don't worry about letting her out in either the BMW or the Expedition (which is actually worth more).

Agree 95%...

I would like to think that my girlfriend is not afraid of driving my car, but that she doesn't want to explain why she is not being careful with our car.

I'm extremely particular about cars, houses, equipment. I like them clean, well taken care of. Some people are not that particular, some are not particular at all. Sometimes you fell in love with a person that simply does not share that level of "particularity".

You should decide, the earliest the better, if you want to change your "level" for this person or if you are going to be arguing all the time about the "level".

It is as simple as that.

Gotta love the I have my car, she has her own argument...

You do realize that they are both of your cars right...? Or are you the happily married couples that has your own bank accounts and split up the bills every month. Now that's the sign of a trusting and sharing relationship.

I let my wife drive whatever car she wants. If I go out in the garage and my 335 is gone, well, she has a right to take it, its hers too. I'll just take our other vehicle.

Clearly, your wife understands how important the car is to you. I let my girlfriend drive my car on a regular basis because she too understands just how important the car is to me. At the same time, I've noticed that she is far too nervous when I'm in the car while she's driving. I say let her do her thing and have fun with the car. Fun is to be had by all. After all, Bimmers don't discriminate.

If I ever want to drink more than 1 alcoholic drink when I'm out with my wife, then yes, she is allowed to drive my car. I'm glad she can drive stick.

She very rarely drives my car without me in it.

I won't let anyone drive my wife..I'm not into the swinging scene and I lean more to the conservative lifestyle than the adventurous.....

...oh wait, I just re-read the topic...never mind.

don't do it, especially in your car:
1/ while she is learning to drive the stick, u will probably drive each other crazy.
2/ i would go crazy just thinking what a rookie could do to my new clutch and transmission.

You can love someone and trust them but that doesn't prevent them from messing up your car.
I am guessing that you slept through logic class? What kind of BS response is that?

Fwiw, my wife drives my 328 with 6MT.

He probably went to one of those fancy law schools in Massachusetts. I saw Jack McCoy use that mechanic touch theory and win in an early episode.
