Should I buy?


Recommended Posts

Evening fellas!


I planned on buying a 2015 Honda Si but my income does not even allow me to solo the financing plan. I do not want a cosigner.


My current car is a 2007 Honda Civic Ex with almost 140,000 miles on it. It still runs great but I would like a newer/faster car.


I would like to sell it before it gets below the $4000 personal price tag.


I am now looking at 2007 Honda Civic Si with over 100,000 miles. It only costs $6900.

Heres the link. https://www.truecar.com/used-cars-for-sale/listing/2HGFA55587H704463/2007-honda-civic-si/


I really dont know what to do.


My father said it wouldnt be a bad idea to sell my car now, if I wanted, and then drive his Buick until I found the car that was reasonable.


Also the one that is possible but still slightly questionable in price is a 2012 Civic Si with 58,000 miles for $13,995. I would have to finance as well.


Here is the link to this as well. http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=450127712&zip=07731&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D07731%26startYear%3D2008%26maxMileage%3D60000%26vehicleStyleCodes%3DSEDAN%26incremental%3Dall%26endYear%3D2014%26modelCodeList%3DCIVIC%26makeCodeList%3DHONDA%26transmissionCodes%3DMAN%26listingTypes%3Dused%26sortBy%3DderivedpriceDESC%26maxPrice%3D14000%26firstRecord%3D0%26searchRadius%3D25%26trimCodeList%3DCIVIC%257CSi&listingTypes=used&startYear=2008&numRecords=25&maxPrice=14000&vehicleStyleCodes=SEDAN&firstRecord=0&endYear=2014&modelCodeList=CIVIC&makeCodeList=HONDA&searc



I am really not sure what to do. I am dead set on getting an Si. Ive mainly driven Hondas and Ive yet to see any reason why I should stop. They are reliable and are somewhat easy to repair.


My income, at the moment, is only 1100 a month.


Any suggestions welcomed


Do I keep my car until I either somehow get more money and THEN finance by myself?


Or should I just go for the older car and hope for the best?


OR should i give up on the Si right now and look at a more lower income type vehicle (please dont choose this :D )
