  • I would pay off the credit cards first, then put money aside for a good used car, then start paying off the student loans.

  • Depends how badly you need a the car..........should have reliable transportation. But debt and loans comes first if the car is OK.

  • I would do it the Dave Ramsay way and start paying off the smallest bills and continue until I was debt free. Then I would save money to buy a car outright if I could wait that long.

  • If you pay off the credit cards, then save the money you were paying towards them for a new car.
