    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...

  5. Please don't top-post. Message rearranged (and edited for speling and
    punctuation) for easier reading comprehension:

    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=24,000 , 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.

    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

    assumption with out even knowing them...

  10. 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.

  11. I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune.
    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.

  12. Yeah, no kidding! Don't let this jerk put you off.
