So is your mother going to be paying you back?
Probably not. She may pay me back, but I am willing to write it off. I'm not counting on getting that money back, but I will sleep better. She raised me and gave me everything she possibly could, even if that meant she did without.

First, I don't understand what your father dying has to do with your mother needing a new-to-her car?
Unless he died in a car crash that totaled the car. (OK, he didn't. It was a sudden illness...but that would be a very good reason why she needs a new car.)
She needs a new car because the 1992 Geo Tracker she is driving is a death-trap. It was dad's car, and he hated it and it was always breaking down, but he couldn't afford a new one. She is a 76 year old diabetic with a heart condition and it's left her stranded more that a dozen times. I don't live close enough to come get her when it breaks down (I am 3 counties away) and he isn't around to help her now. The new car was $6k.
