Okay, last update of today, I promise lol.

I think I’m just gonna go ahead and purchase tomorrow, and end all of this.

Opinions on the 2008 Buick Lucerne? That’s another viable option that I can afford.

I’ll end up buying either that, or the LeSabre tomorrow.

That Lucerne has the 3800 as well.

What I would rec is to get a packet of carfaxes and look for a car where a single owner has owned the car for most of its life, and has been driven around 5-8K miles a year. Lots of senior-driven cars fit that profile.

It’s funny you mention that because both cars fit that profile based on the CarFax lol. They’re in my budget, so assuming either isn’t a lemon I’ll buy the one that I feel suits me more.

I highly doubt both of them are lemons though.

How It Went Down

Ok guys, I actually have a hilarious story to share with you at this point.

I test drove four used cars today, from four different dealerships that had good reviews.

Every last one in my price range was a lemon. Every single one. And here’s the nail in the coffin. I pulled into a Burger King to get a drink on the way to get the inspection for the last car. I literally couldn’t even start the car after I turned it off. What a piece of junk lmao.

Indeed, it is very difficult to find a reliable used car for that $5-7K these days.

So, at this point, I’m just gonna take some of that money that I was approved for and throw it onto my credit cards. I’ll just use my company discount and continue to rent a Tesla every weekend, fvck it. I’ll just keep doing that until I can work more and improve my credit. I can function and game just fine doing that, I was so annoyed by these dealers today. Next time I’m buying from a private seller.

I saw this article today, and I think it’s very pertinent:

Tbh, I haven’t been working 60 hours a week for very long. I’m gonna have to do that for longer.

I probably won’t update this thread for a while tbh

Buy a newer muscle car. Challenger, Camaro, Mustang or Charger. You cant go wrong with any of them. I get 1 comment a day on my muscle car from random people. They make you feel manly and racing people in them never gets old. You get respect from other people that have muscle cars on the road when you have one. Its almost like a secret club. I am so glad I bought one. You will thank me later.
Once I get my credit up, I gotcha bro :rofl:
