We finally saved up enought money for a down payment. 3000 dollars is in the bank. My husband wants to use it to buy a 2005 car that is broke down and has a lot of miles on it. It hasn't ran in 3 years and the neighbors don't know what's wrong with it. He keeps saying, " it's probably a fuel pump."
I need a car that runs. He seriously is insisting on buying this broke down junk. Btw, we have to pay for it to be towed 94 miles to our house. We haven't even seen this car. He won't listen or reason with me.
How do I get him to stop and realize this is bad!!

If my husband went ahead and bought a car without my approval,he'd be living in it. Answer by butterflyblue19
I would be tempted to go remove the $3000 and put it in a seperate account with only my name until we came to an agreement. Why pay $3000 for a car that doesn't work and can't get you places? You can do that for free like you have been for 7 years.
Has he thought about the possibility (read: probability) that it isn't something simple and that he will end up spending far more to fix it than he has to even purchase it?
I used to be a service adviser for a repair facility. Do you know what people would tell me when I gave them estimates for repairs? and I quote "I think I will hold off on those repairs, I'M SELLING THE CAR." People sell their problems to others.
