Re: Denied Denied Denied! Where to turn?

The price was below $8k on the vehicle, and then my wife talked them down more, so it was a good price on it.  They didn't tell us anything about the reason financing wouldn't work was because it was higher mileage.  I wish they would have.  


As for using the money that we would have used on a down payment to fix the motor, it's not enough.  If we were going to put $1K toward a "new" car, the price we've gotten to fix the old one is between $2500-$3000 based on getting a new motor, and then also fixing the cooling system.  The car isn't worth much more than that all together.


I drive 50 miles each way to work, so buying a beater that may leave me sitting on the side of the road makes me very nervous.
