First car advice please?
I’m 18 and currently drive my parents’ kia sedona
and for my 19th birthday (6 days) i have £4500 to get a car, i want a decent sized boot and cheap insurance and not too small as i’m used to driving the huge Kia, any help is greatly appreciated thanks
UK cars please
As insurance is going to be the major factor, unless you are seriously rich, then you will have to downsize quite a bit. Here is a list of the cheapest cars to insure.
Should I move out of my parents’ house as soon as I can?
I just found out that there are some really cheap studio apartments in my city. (Like… less than $300 per month cheap) That’s crazy. I know they’d be super crappy, but I really just want to get out of my parents’ house. I did a little mini calculation and, with a part time, minimum wage job, I can afford to live there! (plus payments for a cheap car, and food and whatnot) Also, they allow pets there, only cats though, so I could bring my kitty with. (I wouldn’t even be thinking about it otherwise) This is literally the best news ever. I’m only fourteen, so obviously this would be in a couple of years, but do you think I should move out as soon as I can?
Also, I’d be in college, but my parents say that living in a dorm is really expensive, and I just can’t stand the idea of sharing a room with someone else and possibly spending more than having my own crappy apartment. My parents will pay for most of my college, but the rest I can take out in loans. (Although I don’t plan on getting myself into a lot of debt)
My parents would be a 10-15 minute drive away, so it’s not like I’m moving across the country, if I ever need any help, or I can’t afford to do laundry, I could always just go over to their house. I’m really trying to get my life started and I need opinions from adults who have been in this situation. I completely understand that I’m just an excited teenager and I have no idea what I’m doing. I have no idea how hard it will be to move out, I’m sure there are plenty of taxes that I haven’t covered in my little budget.
for my own amusement, here’s my budget:
$725 per month ($7.25 minimum wage X 25 hours per week X 4 weeks per month)
-$280 for rent
-$150 for car insurance (my car will be fully paid off by then)
about $100 for food (I’m cheap, and I usually only eat 1-2 meals a day when I don’t have to pay for it)
$50 for cat food and litter
$130 for taxes
about $5 per month for those stickers on your licence plates (they’re like 60 bucks every year, right?)
Crap, I forgot about gas… but anyway, I can get more than 25 hours a week, that’s like the least you can get for a part time job. Plus I’d be taking student loans and I can borrow money from my parents when I’m in a pinch. My mom still does that with her parents. Needless to say, I’d be relying on my dad (my parents are divorced).
Also, is it legal to move out before you turn eighteen? I heard about some law that would let you move out when you’re sixteen, but I don’t know the details of that law. (wow, my mind is blanking out right now)
Anyway, what do you guys think?
I live in North Dakota
Also, the apartment complex pays for heat and water. … and how much would electricity cost? XD
Forgot about internet, I can’t live without that O-O
… dangit! I’m in the hole again.
Life with your parents may seem like the worst thing in the world, but trust me, life on your own is WAY worse. If I could run home to my parents I would’ve done that a long time ago. You may think that you have it all figured out, but remember, those crappy apartments usually have bugs (roaches and others), a repair guy that sucks, so you’ll forever have a broken heater/faucet/hot water/air conditioner/etc. Not to mention they’re usually in crime ridden druggie places with neighbors who play their music/tv too loud all night long, or you can hear them getting it on 24/7, or they have a dangerous pet that they don’t put on a leash. Plus what happens if your car breaks down, or you or your cat gets sick (eating only 1-2 meals a day can wreck havoc on your immune system). Also, you forgot about paying for your utilities, unless you don’t mind having no electricity, running water, or have your trash taken for you. Also, no cell phone, TV, internet, or money to go out to the movies or anything like that could really suck after a while.
If you’re going to rely on your dad for money, you might as well do it from home where you don’t have the stress of the real world 24/7 like I have to deal with. Plus, rooming with friends in college is a really neat experience that you’re not going to get any other time in your life. Be a carefree oblivious-to-the-real-world college student and you’ll end up being much happier. Trust me!
I’m stuck in a rut because of a car repossession … any suggestions?
I was young, (22yrs old) had 2 jobs and made good money. I decided to trade in my old junk of a car and buy a brand new car. I had no credit history so my then bf helped co-sign for my new car. My interest was sky high but I didn’t care at the beginning because I had no idea what I was doing. I paid a very large amount per month and then after about a year, I lost my main job. A few months after that, I lost my other job. I now was collecting unemployment and went through HELL to make sure that car was paid off every month. I started making late payments and my life was just a mess because not only did I have to pay for that car, I had the insurance, rent, etc. I was no longer able to pay my car and that day came when Mr. repo came knocking on the door. They took my car after 2 years of me working my butt off and they auctioned it off for SO cheap (almost had a heart attack at how much they sold it for!)
This was in 2008 and 2 years later, I’m still struggling financially in more ways than a hundred lol…I have really bad credit, I can’t even open a bank account and I feel like my once so organized and amazing life is now totally off track. I don’t know what to do. These are my questions:
1. If I open a bank account, can my lender seize all my money? Not a savings, a checking account.
2. Being that I did not pay the upside down on the car ($16,000) should I file for bankruptcy and is it too late to do that after 2 years? And for those who want to suggest that I pay off the 16 grand, I’m not because I’m not going to pay for a car I don’t have anymore and you might say well you’re stuck with it you should have never bought a car you can’t afford I don’t want to hear it because you don’t know my story. I want serious answers, not answers that are going to sound mean and not help.
If there is anything that I’m missing? Please, any advise would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance
I agree entirely that none of us should be taking a holier-than-thou approach to difficult situations like this. I know what you mean, that there are a lot of people out there who will say things like:
1) you don’t understand. Paying the loan isn’t “paying for the car that you don’t have anymore”. The car was paid for, by the lender. The lender has nothing to do with the car, he just gave you money.
2) how can our society / economy function if people think they can walk away from their debt?
I agree that those points are irrelevant and mean-spirited. However, I think your only choice is to approach the lender for a payment plan. Bankruptcy will not be a good answer. You get rid of $16k of debt, big deal. You ruin your life in many other ways. Please, please please , i recognize how difficult it has been for you. But you have to stick with it. It will be worth it in the long run.
For you to consider before getting a new car!?
A while ago I bought a new Chevy Aveo LT because my 98 Mazda’s 626 (just below 200k mi) transmission went out and I had absolutely no cash for a new transmission.
So, I bought a new car for $0 down to continue working at the CPA. It was my first car at the age of 23.
THANK YOU CHEAP EASY CREDIT DAYS!!!!
With the first year past, I’m regretting the purchase. I love the car! However, it costs so much! I would be better off driving a used V8 truck!
Consider this for the Aveo:
$280/month payments === $3,360/year
$120/month insurance === $1,440/year
Lets look at gas:
Aveo: 35MPG** -> 30 miles per day* + warmup consumes 1 gallon a day of gasonline.
360 gallons a year X $3.00***/gallon gas = $1,080/year in gas costs.
$1,080 + $4,800 = $5,880/year in costs for AVEO.
30 miles a day* == 30×360=10,800 miles a year. 10800/10=1080 gallons a year. Add 10% for warm up…. 1.1*1080=1,188 ga./year.
1,188gallons X 3.00***/gallon = $3,564/year.
Insurance @ $60/month = $720/year.
It is $1,596/year cheaper to use a truck.
I could of got a $1.6k truck easy here in Missouri.
Figure in the $900 sales tax I had to pay, and the higher property tax I will now pay for the Aveo…It would still be cheaper for the truck even if the truck had mechanical problems!
I’ll never buy a new car again!
What do you think?
* I drive 14 miles total for my commute now.
** 37MPG is the tops I ever had. 33-35MPG is what I was getting while commuting to my old job (45 miles one way!) after “break-in.”
*** By assumming $3.00/gal. gasoline give favor to the Aveo. Also, I think it is prudent to calculate $3.00/gal. gas as eventually it will go back up despite current prices here $1.49 in Winfield, and $1.35 in St. Charles.
oklatom: Because I had absolutely no cash (college student still with PT job), I had no choice. If I had this insight, I don’t think I would of been in a position to act much different.
However, when the AVEO reaches 300k mi and the pistons no longer hold reasonable pressure, I know how I will act regardless of my hopefully large cash savings will be.
However, I am very happy with the car!
I just miss the “cheapness” of not having a car loan.
Also, reflection on this just concretes the point that savings are so very important. Scary to even question what the average American is savings as I suspect it to be too low!
You didn’t factor in the price of the truck. That seems like a big piece of the equation. Anyway, I would agree that the Aveo is not the wisest choice. You know that it’s a re-badged Daewoo, right? What the heck was Chevy thinking?
motorcycle insurance for new rider?
hi, im 19 and have 4 years clean car driving experience. i got an m1 yesterday and want to find the cheapest insurance on a suzuki sv650. i called around to a few places like statefarm but either im too young for their coverage, dont have enough years driving experience, or the rates are somewhere around 5 grand a year…which is not an option as im a college student only working 1 day a week, that and i wont be using the bike that often..

If you take an approved Motorcycle Safety Course, your rates will not only be lower, but it will be easier to find coverage………….look online for a course in your area

( i dont want other models, or expensive ones)
please folks, if u r owner of any of these cars n know bits abt them then help this chap..would appreciate a lot.
thank you. have a great day!!
To be honest, your 2 main requirements seem to be purchase price and insurance costs. Any sense of ‘inherent reliability’ or one car being better than another goes out the window when you’re looking for a car at a grand. Check the insurance group is affordable and just buy the best condition motor you can. Doesn’t matter if it’s a Ford Fiesta or a Daihatsu Charade, it doesn’t matter if it’s the most digusting shade of beige you’ve ever seen, if it’s a car with few owners, with a verifiable mileage, a year’s MOT, maybe some service history, from a person you trust, buy it.
Can My father sign over the title to a car in his name (now at home) to me?
I paided for the car in 2003 got a loan he cosigned on. I paid it off in less than 3 years and I have been a driver under his insurance. Which I was told was cheaper because it was grouped altogether. I find out a few days ago when I am getting quotes for my own car insurance with the same company that my mom was intentionally over charging me for years 1,400 last year and 586 this year and she would of taken more if I didnt randomly decide to call and check.Any way I only got back some of it from my father who is slightly more honest than my mom.So I was going to stay on their insurance for a few more months so I can take advantage of the extra$ to pay off my credit card debt. Ok soooo I want to ask my dad to sign the title over to me at home where I live with THEM! just in case something should ever happen to him or if I had to leave in a huff? as far as the DMV rules do I need a bill of sale saying its a gift so I dont have to pay taxes again! I need all Info and advice please
If your father co-signed on the loan, he only has responsibility to the loan. The car is yours once it’s paid off unless he is on the registration-meaning this wasn’t a true cosignment. Don’t have him sign it over to you as a gift. You will pay your registration based on the bluebook value of the car- which could be a lot of cash. Have him right down on the paperwork that he sold you the car for… Say, $500. That way you will pay your registration based on $500 instead of the few thousand your car is probably worth. The less the value of the transaction, the lower your transfer fees. This way you will save a lot more money. Is it honest? Well, is the DMV really honest?
I have had minimal compassion from my neighbors and I don’t even know what I did,this is about my house?
To those who read about the proerty damage to my house and responded.I did get a hold of their insurance the day it happend,my neighbors acted so fake in sympathy but did help on taking the pctures.I was only allowed a certain amount for repairs.What was done is as follows….1.) I already have the 9 gauge
chain link fence up a good section of that was torn down by the car.I went ahead and found 2 contractors but the owner to this corner bar from my place recommended these 2 other guys.I beleaved in BOB.I went over just what I wanted done.I did not want a cheap commercial grade crap fence,I wanted the 9 gauge.They did the cheapie one.2)I can’t explain the type of wooden siding
that is on this place,but the lower board was destroyed and that was to be replaced.I got corner connectors on the house that are made out of sheet metal
but it binds the corners together on the house.They said they could not find any
and there for went with this sheet metal type thing and molded it.Be Back.
What the heck are you talking about? I don’t understand what you’re question is. I think you should stop drinking and yahooing.
