"You need to avoid the trap of buying a car that is going to last for 3 years but you are going to be financing for 5 in order to get the payment you want. It happens all of the time. I had a customer in the door a few years ago that was the worst case I ever saw. The customer had a vehicle he bought somewhere else one year previous with 90,000 miles on it. He financed it for 5 years. When I met him and his nice young family the vehicle had 108,000 miles on it and a blown engine. He could not afford to replace the engine but he owed so much money on the vehicle that he could not sell it either. He admitted that he was only looking at a payment when he bought it and fell into a big trap. There is nothing I could do to help him. 

So what do you do? How about looking at NEW instead? YES it might make sense."
