ANSWERS: 56
  • LOL. I might consider getting my daughter a car IF she can work and help contribute but $100,000. no way. I am sorry but kids get too much crap today and to spend that much on something that they may wreck tomorrow plus do you know how much insurance would cost.. I don't care if I was rich.. my daughter would have to earn that car.. and then no way would it be that much.
  • No, never. That is such a waste of money. I would donate all of my money if I had that much.
  • Nope. I would let her get a job and buy her own car.
  • No not in her wildest dreams!
  • That's stupid. I'd buy her a beater that when she backs into a pole, or rear ends someone while changing radio stations, I'm not going to flip out over.
  • If I had enough money that I could throw away $100k on a car for a teenager, I think I'd know enough about money and risk to not throw away $100k on a car for a teenager. Get them something cheap which doesn't matter so much if it gets destroyed, because there's a very good chance that it will.
  • I wouldn't buy ME a car that expensive. Cars are a waste of money. For me, they are simply a way to get from point A to point B.
  • No. I was looking after my sister's house and kids while they were away a while ago, and they watched a show called something like sweet sixteen in which rich kids got parties thrown for them and all got bought expensive cars for their sixteenth birthdays, and every one of them were spoilt brats, and many weren't happy because it wasn't the "right" expensive brand new car they didn't have to pay for, so I would make them work for it themselves, or maybe buy them a cheaper first car.
  • If that was the only money I had NO If I had enough money to just not care less about, No, Because A, There only 16, and that I would buy them a car but no were near that expesnsive
  • no way. far too much money to spend on a car when it can do some good and go on other more important things. Plus your 16 year old daughter will definitely not learn the value of money if a brand new car is just handed to her on a plate.
  • No, but I would cosign for her for a car loan with a payment and insurance rate she could afford from her part time job.
  • No. She was lucky to get a $15,000 car, no need for anything more expensive than that.
  • It would probably be a very fast car and I would not want her to wrap it around a poll and kill herself, so No. Only 4 cylinders for my kids.
  • Not a hope in hell. What does a 16 year old need a car like that for? And buying it for her doesn't teach her anything except that she can get whatever she wants without any effort. Get her something she needs. Little tiny, fuel efficient thing. And make her work for it.
  • LMAO Not just no, but HELL NO. When my oldest daughter was 16, she managed to roll our Windstar with us in it. If I had the money, she'd get a beat-up Volvo until she could prove her driving skills.
  • LOL, Sure, when we have a snowstorm in Fl
  • Strangly enough our daughter is asking for a nice bike and private drivers classes because she does'nt like the ones they have in school. I am going to custom build a bike with her so she knows how to fix it.
  • Not a chance yo...
  • hahaha NO! i wouldn't even let my parents by me a car worth that much.
  • If I had the money I hopefully would understand the value of working for it, and would not just give her a car that expensive, she would have had to have earned by being very mature, smart, and responsible.
  • Not in a million years. Most kids have an accident or ruin their first car some how.
  • Only if they worked it off.... and unfortunately, I don't own a business for them to run or have a spare life for them to save so... No! That show... My sweet 16. Is a reflection of everything that is wrong with the world and what it is getting full up corpulent with year by year. For people like that... School, should be prison and they should all be sentenced to life so the rest of us that have no choice but to deal with reality, can live far away from them! What? It can be a Federal penitentary so they have luxury okay?
  • hella no. maybe like 5,000
  • She wouldn't be able to drive until 17. And no, anyway. My mum and dad won't even pay for my lessons.
  • Never. College fund, definately.
  • No I wouldn't! I'd buy her a used car, a dependable safe one. She would have to get a job and pay for her own gas, insurance, and upkeep of the car. Once she became a better driver with a LOT more practice, I still don't think she'd have a car that costs $100,000.00. We would be able to help a lot of causes with that much money!
  • No. She'd probably end up crashing it within the first 6 months anyways.
  • Hell NO!
  • Do I look like an imbecile? OK... so maybe I do. But the answer is still "No frikkin way"... A 16 year old girl needs a 100K car like I need a hole in my head. If I had the money, she'd have a 100K college fund, though. I have never believed in buying cars for my kids. They can use mine to work until they can afford their own. I've made it through 3 using this policy so far, and it's worked well for them.
  • No No No A BIG NO
  • No. The first car always ends up wrecked. I'd top off the price at $20,000.
  • I guess I'll be the one person to say yes, I have no problems buying my daughter a pimp car if I had the money. That doesn't mean if I had 100k to my name I would squander it on a car - no, if I had cash-money I would. Now, I know the arguments against this - cars are a waste of money, having children that don't know the value of money is problematic, et cetera. These are all true, but a) if I had ample money, where's the harm in spending it? I'm altruistic by nature, so I do give to charity, but if there's some left over then I don't see how it's bad. I think it's very easy to have a child that doesn't know the value of money while driving a clunker, likewise it's easily possible to have someone understand the value of money while driving a Maserati. Also, safety does play a significant role. My first car was a Ford, it was new. One day while driving down the road, the engine blew up. It was a defective car that was properly serviced and properly driven - but let's face it, Fords aren't exactly high quality. My next car was an import which was significantly more expensive, but also held its value and never had any problems. In the long run, it was cheaper. So now we're discussing the difference between a $30k car and, likely, an $80k car. If I have lots of money, there's not much difference there. Again, this is given that I had oodles of cash.
  • Nope..they are going to wreck the first one..My dad told me that when I was 16 and I said no I wont..I did..LOL first car is a training car..:)
  • Yes, as long as it wasn't a really fast sports car and she was a fairly good driver. Things like college would come first, though.
  • Hell no
  • Yes but I'm a 17 year old boy so I'm biased lol
  • No way. If I were to give in and spend that amount of money on her, then from that point on if I didn't comply with her demands, she would probably say, "What kind of parent are you? You bought me a $100,000.00 car when I was only 16 but you can't buy me this?"
  • yes.........if she was able to prove to me that she would'nt kill herself in it.
  • do i look like a moron? absolutely not. most teenagers wreck their first car within a month of getting their license. besides that, she needs to understand what it's like to earn her own money. I would pick out a good dependable car that she can pay half on, then buy it and make her make payments to me. oh, and car insurance is also her responsibility.
  • No way, I wouldn't buy a 16 year old any kind of car.
  • NO! I'd buy me a $100,000 car, but if I had the money she wouldn't have to worry about paying for school thats for sure.
  • No for I would care to much for her, than to put her in something that may cause her problems down the line. It's better to learn how to earn, than to be handed everything.
  • Not if I wanted to keep the daughter or the car intact.
  • Nope. I would buy me a $100'000 car and give her my Taurus when she was responsible enough to drive it.
  • No way
  • Maybe after she has her education complete, and career path under way
  • no i will not coz this is too much there are people dying from hunger...
  • No. If I really had the money than that would feel quite cheap and reasonable, I guess, like a dollar in your pocket would look like a days wages to some people in other countries. Its all relative. The reason I would not is because 'luxury' cars tend to be capable of silly speeds and are much more likely to be lethal in the hands of someone young.
  • No I don't. Instead I will open a business and make her to run the business under my own management.
  • this is the craziest thing to do...naa ...in these trying times u shudnt urself be buying yourself another one !leave alone ur daughter ....save up each penny buddy!
  • answer no reason at 16 you are not buying them a car you are buying them a crash tester sorry just how it is
  • NO im 16 i dont even trust myself in a car
  • No, she couldn't get a driving licence until she was 17.
  • Hell,No !! A 16 year old girl with a 100k car!! It won't be long before it's a $500.00 junkyard car!!!
  • I wouldn't buy myself a $100,000 car. There is so much more good you could do and it would be a great example for your daughter.
  • I'd buy her A car, but not a $100,000 car. That would be CRAZY!!!
