Right thing to do?

So, me and my dad are trying to decide on a simple thing, heres the story, my dad helped my sister purchase a new car, it was a bit more than her old one, for this my dad sold my sisters old car, for 500$, should we give this money to her, or not? We arent hurting for money by any means, so were thinking we should give the money to her, would you give her the money?

  • Easy.   Old car.  Who paid for that?  If sis did then the car was hers(so the money is hers)  What belongs to her is still hers.   

    Now dad "helped in the purchase of a new car".  If that was financial help, then sis would pay dad back for the financial help...so he is "not out any money and her new car is hers" and she is not owing anyone. She is still independent that way.

    . If the help was more along the lines of " dad helped inspect it and signed for it cause sis could not sign for it as she was not old enough thing " then that just cost dad some time and his "John Henry" to make the purchase legal.

    . That is stuff parents do because AGE.  They happen to be older and that is how the rules of purchasing work.  So no skin off his back. Parents do that for their kids.

    That is the right way to do it. Fair & square.

    How can it be seen any different than that?

    . It definitely is NOT YOURS.  YOU ARE THE THIRD WHEEL.

  • First, go back to school and figure out the $ goes before the number.

  • Since it was "hers", why isn't see getting 100% of the money that was received from selling the car. 

    I have no idea why you are involved in any of it.

  • I fail to see why you are involved in a transaction between your sister and father.

    You aren't hurting for money, but your sister's car is worth $500?  Okay.

  • I do not think we are seeing a clear picture of this situation. 

     Was the old car 'hers' in the sense that she paid for it and it was registered to her?

    Was it 'hers' in the sense that your dad bought it and gave title to her.?

    Was it 'hers' in the sense that your dad bought it and allowed her to drive it exclusively ?

    Did Dad help with the new car by  helping her look for it and test it ?

    Did Dad help with the new car by loaning her the money to buy it ?

    Did Dad help with the new car by co-signing for a loan to buy it ?

    This is between your dad and your sister.  What is your interest in any of this ?

    Part of this is about teaching your sister to be responsible.  Seems to me that getting a newer car and $500 cash might make it too easy.  If she borrowed money from Dad, the responsible thing is too repay it.  If the old car was really Dad's, then he should keep the money from the sale of his car.   

    This is not just about money, but about mutual respect, and love

  • Geez, just give her the money.  It is called helping.  Your sister will remember when you will need help yourself soon.

  • say the new car cost 750$ and your sister only had 300$ to put towards it. you dad would have paid 450$. that should be his and the extra 50$ can be split between dad and sister
