Right now I have a 2001 Honda Accord sitting in my backyard. It's been there for 3 years now. It needs a new transmission (easily 2K). I don't know if I should sink in the money to get it fixed or get try to get financing from a Credit Union or bank for a used car (no more than 11K) I have a full time job, work 40 hrs a week, make 1400 after taxes. I live with my parents, so no real expenses.
TransUnion says my score is 693 and Experian says its 656. I worry that my time at my current employer isn't favorable (its only been 3 weeks since I was hired.) Currently i walk to the train station and take the train. I am not looking forward to the summer time because I live in Texas. So I was wanting to make a decision and hoping fix up the car/buy a car by then. With my combination of scores and time of employment, which may be easier or better? (considering I was end up having transmission issues in the future)
