My best friend lives in low income house complex, and her neighbors across the hall from her was screaming accross the parking lot at everyone while I was pulling in about their new 2013 car that costs like 80k. How are they affording this? I'm not on low income housing and I drive a 2002 Chevy cavalier with a massive oil leak!!!


Eta: I'm not for sure the car model. It was a red car that my friends neighbors were standing next to screaming look at our new 80k 2013 car.
Best part is this morning I left my friends house and their car had spray painted on the side of it the word bitch.

Good question.  I have a job, do not live in low income housing and still have a 2003 Durango.

Because anyone can lease a car...that doesn't mean they would ever really be able to afford it.

I think a reliable car is very important, but they don't need an 80k car to get from a to b, if they can afford that, they don't need to live in public housing.

Maybe they needed a car and that was what they wound up with. Depending on where you live, lots of people are buying up to date cars because it's smarter. Not because they want to spend that kind of money. Lots of cars are slalvaged titles.

Because they are leasing it or making payments? I never really understood that either; but its their money... expensive cars may be why they ended up in lowincome housing in the first place
