Apparently I was supposed to get one for graduation... guess I’m stuck with my ‘95 Avalon a little while longer

Don’t plan to. Even if I had to buy a newer car, the dealer/seller would laugh at my credit. I’ve been paying for everything out of pocket for the last 6 years. Had good credit until then. Now have ok credit with no real proof of income.

No. I dn’t plan on buying any car even in the next 12 decades. Not that I’ll be alive then.

No, but I AM interested in seeing what’s gonna be happening with Jeep’s iconic Wrangler. The last JK reportedly left the assembly line at the end of April, and the plant in Toledo is supposedly retooling to produce the new Wrangler JL, and Jeep Wrangler trucks!

Nah, can still get another 5-10 years out of my car easily.

I’m going to keep my paid off car until the wheels fall off and then probably just buy new wheels;)

My current car has 172,600 miles and is 14 years old. Gotta buy a new one soon.

If the new nissan frontiers come out I will wait another year and get a used one.

And I never buy new. Best way to throw money away. Gently used.

Mrs. Shadow will be getting a new SUV for xmas this year.

I just gotta figure out where to buy those big fucking bows.

My Mom will be receiving my Wife’s 2008 sedan with 50k miles on it for her xmas gift.

Then I can claim Baller status and say I gave two ppl cars the same year.

Renting the bow may not be a great idea.

Im planning on banging one out on the hood of that vehicle after giving it to her.

I may not get the deposit back 🤣🤣🤣

My lease is up next summer. I really like leasing cars and I don’t mind the car payment because I like having a new car every three years.

Who buys New cars? Not people on budgets that's for sure. I'll be buying used, without too many miles or problems, but yeah, new to me I guess.

Entrepreneurs and businesses. You can’t depreciate a used car like you can a new one for income tax purposes.

You’re throwing your money away if you lease. You have nothing to show for it at the end of the lease.

I have a business degree, am well read, and know what I’m doing. It’s my money, so nothing about which you should worry. But, thanks for the info and your concern. 😊

Katerina, I have a psych degree vs. your business degree. Ask yourself why you overreacted to my comment and you’re so defensive.

katerina13 stuck in the middle
06/14/18 7:12 pm

If you think I was defensive and overreacted, you should question your psych degree and your perception of things. I’m not sure why you felt the need to comment on what I do with my money, since it doesn’t concern you. I don’t really care what you think and didn’t ask for your help or opinion on my financial decisions. Carry on! 😊

No, all the new cars I like are north of 50k so I'm thinking about something coming off lease.

Anyone who buys a 2019 car is an idiot. Buy a two year old car if you want a new one so bad. Use that incredible amount of money you saved to help pay off a kids student loans or something. Just don't buy a new car folks. It's a used car the moment you drive it off the lot.

Unless you own a business or you’re buying one of the few vehicles that’s cheaper new than <5 years used.

Just bought an Equinox, I love it! If it’s as good as my HHR was, I will be ecstatic. When I traded the HHR it had 289,000 miles on it and all I ever had to replace on the car was the alternator.

My husband’s dad used to work for Ford, so I can get a good deal on one. I’m thinking either an Escape or Eco-Sport.

Actually probably yes. It's planned for next tax return, but if my old F-150 has another year in her, I'll hold off. After 20 good years, she's earned the right to die with her boots on.
