Actually a used car. But anyways, my 1995 Ford Probe Gt is about to hit 200,000 miles. Im not going to get into detail with all of the problems Im having with the car and why I want to get rid of it asap but with all those miles you can image all the little things that add up quickly. The cars im looking at are all used and $12,000 or under. The cars are Dodge srt4, Subaru wrx or sti, Chevy Cobalt ss, Infiniti g35. How should I start to "arrange" my finances to be able to buy one of these? Should I pay my ccs down and use them as a down payment, or just start putting my money aside for a cash down payment? Also, any tips or tricks i should look for when I go into the car dealer? Anything with the car itself?
