I didn't mean to make it sound like you were turning a profit, was just basically trying to point out potential unforeseen consequences. Was guessing insurance might end up in the same relative ballpark as $200 a month but I am so out of touch with what it would cost for a teenager's insurance.It was just a number. We just want it to "hurt" a little bit so the kids take care of the car and not we are not trying to make a profit off them. My wife and I will have to think about this number.
Next you'll have to think about how to deal when the current 16 year old and 14 year old are home for summer break and both need to drive to their jobs. Good luck I have a while before I have to think about stuff like this.
