i hate havin to go into debt for a new car. its not like the old one is completely dead, its just i can't save the money , or rather its not worth saving the money, to do repairs to the old one. a new car comes with a warranty from the dealer which takes care of any surprises. top of my list is the new mazda3. but it has a fishy look to it. [thats the new release, not the current one]. but i find myself very very reluctant to sign up for a loan, i means its 5 years of slavery. i'm just one of those undiciplined types who can't save.
