The day has finally come. You’re old car finally bit the dust, and your excited to get behind the wheel of a brand new car. Unfortunately, you didn’t get as low of an interest rate as you had expected, and with tags, title and licensing, costs are soaring.
You never though it would ever cost this much, but what other choice do you have? There’s no way your paying for a used car, not after all the repairs you had to deal with when you were driving your last car.
