Nice. I take it this is her first car? If so GREAT choice. We did the same thing for our son 8 years ago when he got his 2009 Vibe GT which was his first car and still driving it today. That's 8 years & counting (paid cash for it at the time ... 50% his & 50% parents) of no car payments for a new driver. Love it. Teach her the basic maintenance stuff (unless she's already mechanically inclined) and she'll be cruising safely for thousands of miles!
I agree with tpollauf.
You might pick up a torque multiplier wrench, or at least one of the Harbor Freight 2 foot breaker bars with a lug nut deep socket. I put one of those in my wife's car so she wouldn't have to try to stand on that dinky lug wrench to get a wheel off in case of emergencies.
