some people cannot afford the financing payments brian thats why they lease.
we cant afford a 400.00 payment a month for 5 yrs so if we got a new one it
would be a lease even though it seems that your wasting $ out the window on
a car u wont own in the end...

4 years? For a car as cheap as an *Accent*? Good grief. One big rule
that people seem to forget: The longer the loan, the more you end up
paying in interest. The $5184 you'll pay in total probably has at least
$350 in interest/finance charges--it's impossible for me to tell what
the exact numbers for that are though. I got a decent 3-year loan rate
on my Tiburon and *still* ended up paying a total of $600 in
interest/finance charges--which is really annoying. Debt sucks; carry
as little as possible.
"If you can't afford it, don't buy it" doesn't work? Oh well. A ____
and his _____ are soon ______, eh?
Hm. 400*60$,000 , and Accents don't cost *that* much unless you get a
loan-shark interest rate. Unless you meant $400 (Canadian) or 400 DM or
some non-US currency unit, or you meant something that isn't an Accent.
(In written communications on Usenet or similar media, you have to be
more precise than usual; otherwise people can and will misunderstand
Yeah. The way to save money on a car is to buy a 1-2 year old car
that's a model that has a good repair/reliability record, then drive it
until it falls apart or repair time+costs get too annoying. That means
you can't show off your new car, natch, but the money you save by buying
used would easily pay for a nice vacation or 2. (Or you could put that
money into an aggressive mutual fund, and make it make money for you...)
I'll probably end up buying a used Prius or similar econobox when my Tib
falls apart if gas prices keep creeping upwards. Anyway, leasing a car
is usually a bad financial move; YMMV though.

It's your money; feel free to spend it as you like. The point of this
thread is that if one is going to keep a car as Kroger Bobb is, it's a
LOT cheaper to just buy it than to lease it, then buy it at the end.
I dunno how your credit looks, but my Mom managed to find herself in a
2003.0 Santa Fe LX 2.7L for $370/month (0% interest), TT&L down, no
balloon payment at the end.
If your credit sucks, your pricing may vary... If your credit sucks
that bad, well, chances are somebody made it that way :-P
would you consider kidney failure my boyfriends fault for loosing his credit
and being forced to go bankrupt because he could not work after and before
his transplant surgerys?
some you guys here are so quick to jump on someone and have a quick
assumption with out even knowing them...
fuck this news group
One of us makes a snap judgment so all of us are guilty? I don't think
so. Most of us here have simply been trying to explain to you how to
SAVE some money, which seems to be what you need under your current
circumstances. If you don't want to listen, that's another story.
Sometimes life deals you some bad cards. You either adapt and survive or
you don't. In the not so distant past, I've been forced to swallow my
pride and drive some pretty hideous vehicles, as well as making some
other major adjustments to my lifestyle. If nothing else, I learned a
lot about how to minimize my cost of living and the value of having as
little debt as possible. If you use this difficult time in your life to
learn such lessons, you'll come out of it much better in the long run.
I wish you the best of luck.
Being accused of gay because of where I put a $!! Some people have too
much time on their hands!! As for my finances with my car that is my
business. I didnt like leasing in the first place. I should have kept
quiet about it in the first place. Ohwell, time for bed!!! Bob
