Two years ago I bought my first car! Two years ago I took on the second biggest debt of my life...no one ever tells you about that expensive piece of paper that will be the first biggest debt you take on. I'm sure you can guess that I am referring to your College Diploma which can rack up a nice price tag. The average debt taken on by students in the US was $30,000 in 2014, so use your imagination for what it currently racks up.
For you blessed individuals whose parents paid that debt for you...guess what the rest of us envy you because we were not so lucky!
I remember the day as if it was yesterday! I literally was NOT looking for a car instead I was just looking (this is how they get you!). Then I saw it...
Then I test drove my car and fell in love. This was it, this was the one for me, where do I sign? In the end I got the car that Saturday night and had to come back to get it on Monday night. Two years later and I still love my car! Thanks to the carelessness of the American people my car has slight scratches but nothing that can't be fixed with paint once I pay it off.
I hope that you all enjoyed and that you remember to live your life the best way that you can and not for otherIf you are willing to make short term sacrifices you can achieve so much in life. The debt that comes along with a car can be great especially if you are looking for a car with low miles but one thing to keep in mind is that the maintenance on a car with fewer miles is far less than getting your car repaired every 6 months.
My bit of advice for car shopping:
If you are looking to buy a car soon be wise and do your research. Please comment and share.
I hope that you all enjoyed and that you remember to live your life the best way that you can and not for others.
