I appreciate the pre-congrats and positive feedback. I'm always skeptical of these situations until a decision is reached. I pretty much have to convince them that this car will be okay for a responsible 16-year-old Junior in high school to have.
Does anyone have any suggestions on any angles? I'm thinking of, "Well, any car can be driven irresponsibly, but how many have consistent 5-star safety ratings and reliability?" Or, "If you want to ground him by taking the car away, at least YOU'LL have an awesome car to borrow in the meantime."
