This is probably a stupid question, but have you checked craigslist and Facebook yard sale pages in your area? Are there any churches that might help?

Yep I been checking the heck out of Craigslist

Going to check out a car tomorrow! It’s a certified dealership! $1700 which is exactly how much I have right now! Hoping it pans out! 130,000 miles on it. May need a little work here or there but 100% drivable right now. Will let you guys know tomorrow how it works out!

My fingers are crossed :crossed_fingers:

My only concern is it is a rebuilt car, but it’s had full inspection and has been deemed road worthy.

Good luck!! Tell us all about it tomorrow!

Will do, my biggest concern is why are they selling it for $1700. If it’s because it’s rebuilt, then fine! Most time insurance companies will only do plpd on them, but it’s not that big of a deal considering it’s used and rebuilt anyways. But originally they wanted $3500. Im hoping they’ve just realized that aren’t going to get they when it’s a rebuilt title! I got it carfaxed and it says it was rebuilt last year and got a 63 point inspection and passed road safety testing. But I am wondering if they even check out anything other than structural with that!

. this is what I am going to look at. It needs new tires! Needs a bit of cosmetic work (which is fine) just leery still with the price. Hoping it’s as sound as they are making it out to be. It’s a Serra dealership and the reviews online everyone seems really happy with them on used cars. 700+ reviews and 4.5 out of 5 stars. Which is why I feel more comfortable checking it out! We will see how it goes! I don’t mind having some work to do on it, as long as it’s drives in the meantime!

Fingers crossed for you Ash!

Thank you! I’m always nervous buying used cars as even if you get it mechanically checked (this one has been) things can still happen quickly with used cars!

YES, was in this same boat, but luckily I knew someone selling their Nissan Altima so I scooped that up right quick. I hope that it goes well for you, Ash. Sucks to not have a car.


(Ashley) #52

Yeah I saw that! Looks like a nice car! Glad you got a good deal on it too! As long as it runs and doesn’t die on me in the next few months and I can save up some money then I’ll be golden! Just the I’ll sell it for $1700 but wanted $3000+ has me nervous!


(Ashley) #53

I can officially say I bought the car! It does need some fixing, needs new tires and a few cosmetics that I can work on! Tires are still drivable, just needs changing soon! Needs a lot of cleaning! They changed the oil and gased it up! Just want to say a big thank you to everyone that has helped me along the way <3
