  • Will a car dealership work with me if I m gonna lease a new car, while trading in the car I have, which has an outstanding loan against it?

    The car I have now has a loan against it which is worth more than the trade in value of the car by about $5000. If me and a family member were BOTH looking to lease a new car (so 2 new cars), does anyone know if a dealership will be working to work with me in any way?

If me and a family member were BOTH looking to lease a new car (so 2 new cars), does anyone know if a dealership will be working to work with me in any way? Also the cars looking to be leased are not high end or luxury cars, they d be coming from a dealership like Honda, Toyota, or Subaru.

  • Should I voluntarily repo my car?

    So i was recently in the hospital and due to my stay there I lost my position at my job and I lost my job. I found another one, but it's no where near as much pay. I sold my home because I no longer was able to afford it, but the tricky part is now getting rid of my car. I made some dumb decisions in my past and I ended up with a bunch of trade ins so I am 20k upside down on a 2017 prius. It was financed by toyota!. I think I can pay the difference because I have a paid off 1997 beater honda that works that I can use. I just cant pay the $750 a month plus $600 insurance. Would this be viable? What would happen to my credit? WOuld gap insurance cover the rest?

  • Is it true that if you’re trading in a car with a lot of negative equity, you have to get a brand new car that costs more than what you owe?

    Best answer: It really depends on how you define “a lot” of negative equity. If you’re talking up to $3000 that is a fairly easy hurdle to overcome. If you’re talking about $8,000-$10,000 that’s a hole that is nearly impossible to dig yourself out of regardless of the car you’re trying buy. One thing is for sure, a car... show more
    Best answer: It really depends on how you define “a lot” of negative equity. If you’re talking up to $3000 that is a fairly easy hurdle to overcome. If you’re talking about $8,000-$10,000 that’s a hole that is nearly impossible to dig yourself out of regardless of the car you’re trying buy.

    One thing is for sure, a car salesman isn’t going to give you straight forward financial advice regarding this matter. They will tell you anything you want to hear to sell you a car you can’t afford. Don’t listen to anything a car salesman tells you because if he’s talking, he’s lying.

    Consider this. ANY negative equity is money lost. Money you’ll never get back. You can’t buy a car, sell it for a lose and not come out losing. That’s exactly what trading in your car with negative equity means.

    So what you need to do is face the reality of losing money on this deal. How much money are you willing to lose, and accept the fact that you’re losing real money. Can you realistically lose $8000-$10,000 dollars on a bad car deal? Even losing $2000-$3000 is a lot of money. Probably more than you can realistically afford to lose.

    My advice to anyone in this situation. Figure out a way to KEEP YOUR CAR, keep paying for it, keep maintaining it and keep driving it until you no longer owe more on the car than it is worth.

  • Can you have a roll cage in a car in California?

    I have a 1996 vw golf gti vr6 that I’m building for the 24 hours of lemons races. I have to have a cage in the car to race. If I install the cage will it still pass Smog? And the dmv said they wanted to look at the car. Or should I get it street legal then put the cage in the car? I live in California

  • I'd like to buy a 2018 car with the back-up camera in a few years, after depreciation slows down. What year would you recommend?

    I'm thinking 5 years. That's enough time that they've probably changed the tires and oil, etc., and I think depreciation has slowed. I imagine I could get a used car warranty, too, for a few years. But i'm just guessing.

  • Should I sell my car or keep it?

    Im planning a move from Ohio to Florida & was going to sell my car. Some say I should just drive the car there. Would you drive a 2003 Honda Civic those 16 hours? Should I drive there or just buy a new car when I get there? Is the public transportation good?
