Wow! Sometimes sacrifices and definitely budgeting are needed to plan out buying a car in full to be fully owned. $400 and more monthly is way too much.

I love it! I wish I would have known about you before now. I can relate to these stories. I became disabled 2 years ago, used what little I had in retirement, lived off my small disability check and credit cards in addition to raking up debt making repairs on my home in order to sell it. We close tomorrow. Bitter sweet. Too many emotions to count. Thanks again.
