What is this discussion about?
May 29, 2011 (5:01 am)
Wanted to say thanks again for being so helpful and providing such quick replies!
Gonna start my used car search in earnest this week with the goal of purchasing a car by the end of June/July
(The lease is still an option but I've relegated it really as a backup option at this point)
Thanks again for all the help!
I'm sure I will be back with more questions along the car search

The thing is, if you purchase a used vehicle at a good price and pay as much as you can each month (meaning, as much OVER the required monthly payment as you can), in a couple of years your trade-in should act as a decent downpayment on your next vehicle.

If you want a 200 a month car payment. Look at a compact car. Think, Civic, Mazda3, Elantra, Corolla etc. Only look at a Subie if you live up north. AWD is really a waste in Florida for example.
I would finance a nes for no longer than 5 years. If you are going to be making 150,000 in a couple of years. You can pay off a 17,000 car pretty quickly.

I saw some old cars on fitzmall.com for $688. At that price, if it lasts 3 or 4 months you made money.

I hope this is the right discussion for this question.
I'm seeing all these big Events for certain manufactuerers that i've been considering and all the offers end at the end of the month. I'm curious as to wether now is the best time to get the lease that I want or will there be better offers say November/December time?
