Yesterday, I bought a new (to me) car. A 2008 Saturn Astra, originally listed at $14,000, knocked down to $10,995.
It’s not the first car I’ve owned, or even the first car I’ve purchased. But it’s the first one that I financed and the first one I had to haggle for.
I knew I wanted the car when I went to the dealership, but being young and having never taken on a debt like this (student loans notwithstanding), I was very cautious about what I was getting into.
