Buy Here Pay Here Dealer

My wife has a recently divorced friend who is a mess. She just had her car repo'ed today while at work.

Anyway, partly to keep my wife from becoming her taxi driver I'm putting feelers out for anyone that might know/own/work at a car place that caters to those with worse than bad credit and is less buzzardly than normal.

I'm of the opinion she hasn't hit bottom yet and won't turn things around until she does but she's deep into Lindsay Mode denial. The tough thing is she has two kids and the dad is threating to take her back to court to try and take away her custoday . . . . so my wife is struggling with it.

Any leads?

$1500 for a car these days, is almost wasted money.

You can get lucky and find a real gem once in a while, but in most instances they're not even worth driving, just a perpetual drag on the pocketbook.

Its usually better to pony up and get something as new and nice as possible.

You can get a year out of a $1500 car if you budget $500 for repairs. She will wind up paying more than that in interest in the first year if she takes out a high interest loan.

The reason you disagree is because you have the skills required to keep an old POS running.

cash for clunkers destroyed the bottom end of the used car market, it drove up prices from the low end up.

This is my business day in and day out, that 1500 dollar car is gonna be a big POS in MOST CASES.

That being said I'm driving a 225k mile civic every day that I bought a couple years back for 1800 bucks.

YMMV.

Not true. I buy cars quite often from people.

Bought a 93 Taurus with 30,000 original miles for two hundred bucks a couple months ago. Guy was 100. Family didn't want him driving.

Sold it for 1500 and those people have had absolutely no issues.

Bought a 99 neon for three hundred, sold it for a grand. No problems in a year. Well nothing major.


Bought a 97 Olds 88 with a blown motor, put in an engine, had seven in it. Sold out for two thousand. That was nine months ago.

Let me know what she needs and how much she has to spend in cash (if any) and I can probably get her something that will run reasonably well.

McDonalds won't even give you a job without having a licenced car, unless you can prove your mom or roommate had one and is willing to drive you everyday.

And how exactly did this Bitch get to the point where car got repoed? Sickens me the people that sit around and let that happen. You have a car, which means you have a legit shot at making money everyday even if you don't have a job. Between scrapping metal, doing errands for people and day to day temp services, nobody with a working vehicle should be broke enough to lose it.
