Buick Encore for our new Driver

We bought our daughter the Buick Encore for her first car.  We got it  at #1 Cochran Robinson dealership.  The total cost was $25, 014.62 .  It was actually $24, 982 then we got a $1,250 rebate for their promotion deals plus $750 military discount. The 2,000 discount helped a little to lower the cost but with tax and everything, we still ended up paying twenty five grand.  We financed the loan thru General Motors Financial.  I am glad that both hubby and I have a really good credit score, we qualified for a 0 interest loan which is really nice.   

Here she is practicing parallel parking at the DMV in Moundsville before she took the  driver's test. She's been driving long distances and she's doing pretty good. She's a worrier so even though she drives well, she still felt nervous prior to taking the test. She took her driving test on the 9th and she passed. She had to wait till she turned 16 before she could take it but she was fully ready.

I won't go through the features since I am not really good with cars but I found this video on YouTube that shows it.

She is working part time now so she pays for her own gas.  We told her that she will have to learn how to deal with maintaining her car so if she will need new tires, that would be a few hundreds that she will have to shell out her own pocket so as much as she likes to drive around, she need to keep those things in mind.  But of course, we will be paying for it if she can't afford it,.  We just want her to learn to be financially responsible.  Luckily, there is a free maintenance   that was given to her at the dealership but when it runs out, there are promo code online also that she could use for discounts that would be able to save her some bucks.
