My newest car is an 02 currently. And I do buy crap cars sometimes and rehabilitate them to be good again, so I'm part of the solution I run like an animal shelter for cars over here LOL

But.......

Has anyone noticed we have $3,000,000,000,000 in "new wealth" just created out of the "Trump Bump" market rally ?

I see a lot more car buying ~~~ (and car debt.)

A young female friend of mine just got herself into a predatory loan on a 2017 Jeep Patriot. She has no credit history and doesn't really have a concept of financing or banking. Unfortunately, she decided to replace her aging Explorer with a brand new vehicle rather than consulting with anyone about what the best course of action was. She went down to the Jeep dealer and signed her life away on what is one of the worst loans I've ever seen. $600/month for 72 months at 27% APR. She's going to end up paying $43,000 for that turd if they don't repossess it first. She's also going to be so upside-down that she'll never be able to get rid of it. It's frustrating.

Oh - to add insult to injury, they talked her into a $2,200 maintenance plan that covers oil changes and tire rotations for 2 years or 24,000 miles.
