Shopping for a car is a pain in the butt.

On the one hand, all the dealerships are eager to work with you.

On the other hand, that's because they're out to steal your moneys.

I found a 2010 Ford Focus I really liked...but it's five grand more than I wanted to pay. Then again, I'm getting financed anyway, so what does it matter?

Have I ever mentioned that I hate debt? I really do. I hate having this big weight hovering over my head. This accident was just bad timing all around, however. I have no choice. I have no savings (thanks, Dad!), no viable trade-in, nothing. So it's a loan or no car and we can't go without a second car. It's only been a week and I want to throttle my selfish jack-ass of a brother.

Arg!
  • Sticking within a budget is important, even if it is being financed.

    I cheated and took a former car salesman with me when I bought my last car. It didn't hurt that he's like 6'3". It sucks that having a man with you means you're less likely to be cheated, but that still happens to be true.
  • Ugh, I wish you luck.
    I hate car shopping. They ARE out to steal your money. I had one sales guy ask me what he needed to do to get me to leave the lot with a car. WTF. And he tried his damndest to make me leave the lot with a car too, and it just felt too intrusive.
    Too pushy and skeevy too.
