How about a bone stock Sami? And when she goes to college you can either chop it up with yoyo stuff and 'pane or just resell it for probably MORE than what you paid.

Call your insurance agent and get a list of the ones with the cheapest insurance, then go form there.

Good advice there. Kids gonna tear up some equipment. You can get a nice car for under 10k, but I agree with the Toyotas, highlanders, lexus rx 300 (we never do anything but maintenance on them) easy to work on and get parts for. I personally don't care for nissans and fords since they seem to always have expensive repairs. Stay away from exploders.

New camaros are freaking cool if you can find a deal on a v6.

Or Cobalts. I'm not price savvy on Cobalts, but the SS Cobalts look pretty darn sharp. G6 would be a good car for her too. Dated a girl that had one for a long time and never had any issues with it.

I'd go with a tdi beetle, jetta, or a 3 series BMW. Bmw's run forever, are cheap on parts, can b had cheap, and pretty sweet.

2.5 altimas have issues when oil isn't changed, and they have the exhaust manifolds crack then the cat stops up, yada yada. I just put an engine in one at 183k miles due to this. The 3.5 nissan v6 has an issue where the rear timing cover gasket blows out and is retarded expensive to fix about 120-140k miles. It seems if you get a good nissan then they run forever, or they are complete piles of ****.

When I was that age (that sounds so weird saying that.. 10 years ago), I wanted something with the most room that I could fit all my friends and crap into (SUV, etc..).

That being said, if it was my daughter, it would be something small. Preferably 2 door. That way she isn't the one that drives and all her rowdy friends pile in the car with her.
