She is thinking maybe a small pick-up or jeep type vehicle. BUT, following her fathers' parameters,it HAS to be diesel. Heck, if she got an old Chevy pick-up, I could work on it...as long as it wasn't a diesel.
She isn't feeling "entitled" to a car. Her dad gave her older sister one of the Mercedes when she turned 18 and the kid HATED it. She was okay with it being an older car and all that...it was the "sluggishness" that bother her. It also broke down on her...had to have the transmission replaced...so she gave it back to her dad. It runs now, but again, it still has that sluggish thing happening...as they all do.
As far as safety...they have seat belts, but these cars are ALL pre-air bag vehicles.
If I had the money, I would get her a gasoline powered vehicle. Probably a Mini-Cooper---she loves those things.
