Payments suck. I'm halfway done paying off my whip.
Don't hesitate. Wait! Maybe you should...

Payments are horrible.  Oh, how I hate payments.

 

Also, you didn't buy a new car.  The 2015 models will be out any time now.  You bought a 2 year old car, but were probably charged the price of a new car.

 

Unless you paid them about half of what a brand new car costs, then you were robbed.  Your car has already depreciated to about half what it was worth brand new (back in 2012).  If you total the car, your insurance company will not pay what you owe on it, but only the current value of the car.  They have that number in the computer.  Call up your insurance company and ask them what the current blue book value is.

 

The last car I bought was in 2007.  It was a 2005 vehicle, making it about 3 years old.  I drove them down to half price on it.  I wasn't about to buy their depreciation.

What are your payments as a percentage of your income after taxes?    You really should do that math first man :smileytongue:.

i have to ask what's the process of buying a new car like?

 

what's the breakdown of taxes, fees and payment?

 

why i asked?  my one and only car that i have is the 1996 Honda Accord... it has about 110k mileage on it..
of which i did not use for the last 7-8 months..

 

I've NEVER bought a NEW car before.. so i don't know what to expect?  i was told to just ask for out the door price.. 2-3 thousand before MSRP price??

 

i'm thinking of buying a truck with all the recent home improvement works..never wanted a truck.. but now i do.... but not until i have the money..  

 

i noticed the benefits of owning an old car.. registration is cheap.. insurance is cheap.. it's like $38 for 2 years of resgistration.. and $90 for 6 months of car insurance..

I hope you got the car for a HUGE price drop.

Your 200, is a left-over platform from the horrid Avenger/Stratus fleet vehicle aka rental car. The Chrysler 200 is just a renamed Avenger/Stratus to try and remove the bad taste out of Chrysler's mouth.

 

Logic, who would've thought eh? Oh wait.... No one thinks anymore.
