    Having ANY car payment is "just stupid". I pay cash.

    I don't have access to $14,000 at any time to pay cash for a car. I put $2000 down+the trade in on the old car, and end up with payments about $300 a month.

    Me too and that is a great feeling not having a car note.

    I bet Toyota, Honda, Nissan, etc are licking their chops with the news that the downsizing of American dealerships will result in less competition and higher costs to the consumer for those Union Made Cars. What a deal for us taxpayers who are going to get screwed coming and going. :eek:

    It's not buying the cars that is so bad. The drivers keep wanting more an more money, better insurance, more vacation days and then to find one with a good driving record that will pass a drug test is next to impossible!

    Nor do you have to be. Just save money and buy within your means - something Americans used to understand and now have to re-learn.

    That's how my parents lived. They never paid interest on anything but on a house.
