  • I agree with rkoloms, it be cheaper to get a beater for $1000? You'll have to do your research and make sure you're getting a car that won't break down on you.

    Look for something that is old and ugly, but has few miles on it and is in general good repair. Estate sales is a good place to look. Good Luck.

  • Are you getting an income tax refund? Some places will give you an anticipation loan right now.

  • Sorry about your car troubles. Just remember that things happen for a reason. Be thankful for what you have, and always think positively.

    Best Wishes!
