Our 18-year-old-daughter will be leaving for college this coming fall, we are getting her a car and are thinking that it should be titled in her name. Does anyone here have any experience or thoughts, good or bad, going this route? We would buy the car and then gift it to her so we don't get taxed twice. I may put a small loan on it so she learns how to handle financial responsibility and starts to generate some credit. Our main concern is vicarious liability if the car is in our name. She has assets in a trust but they don't become hers directly until both parents pass and she reaches certain ages for incremental control.
