I admit it. I'm not the best car owner. I wait too long to get oil changes, I don't do much preventive car maintenance, I let my inspection sticker go for an extra month or two. I've been good lately though, I swear it! I got an oil change, had my tires rotated and finally got my inspection sticker.
After being a good car owner my car thought "now, now's the time to screw with you".
My power steering is gone. There was a giant puddle under my car and you need the strength of Hercules to turn the wheel. I just started laughing because what else can you do. I just spent all of my savings getting my alternator fixed. I don't have the money to get it fixed right now. What I need is a new car. Let's see if I can get that with $10.00 down.
I'm hoping it's something small like a hose broke. It never is though is it. Cars like to take your bank account eat it and then vomit all over your driveway.
Has anyone leased a car? I'm considering going that route when I can save for a down payment but I've never leased before. I just hate car repairs and would rather get a new car every few years.
