    Best answer: It’s fine if you buy from a reputable tyre shop.

    Think about it: every time you buy a used car you get a set of used tyres, and unlike the ones from a tyre shop they’ve only had an external visual inspection. Used tyres from a decent tyre shop will have been inspected inside and out and any which are too old to be safely re-used will not be sold. I know of no used car sellers who routinely replace old tyres before sale unless they’re clearly badly worn or damaged.

    And yet people don’t think twice about thrashing a newly bought used car at high speeds and hard around bends when they’d pause to think about doing it on a newly purchased set of used tyres.

    Yeaterday I bought a set of four brand new tyres for my car; the old ones had plenty of tread but had noticeably poor grip at times because they’ve just turned seven years old and have hardened. All except one tyre which was brand new almost exactly a year ago and which had only done 7k miles. Reselling that tyre makes perfect sense

  • Would a Mustang GT be a good family car?

    Best answer: NO. Loading kids in and out of the back seat of a coupe will prove to be a pain in the rear.

  • Why do people immediately think I'm financing when I say I want to buy a new car?

    I'm 20 years old and I'm saving nearly every penny I get so I can get a new car. I make $300-$600 a week. I'm not going to spend all my money on it.

    I'm 20 years old and I'm saving nearly every penny I get so I can get a new car. I make $300-$600 a week. I'm not going to spend all my money on it. I want to have a little bit left over in case anything goes wrong with the car. The car I have now is getting ready to completely give out. I've had it since I was 18. I've kept it up nice and taken care of it. A car for less than $1000 doesn't usually last for 2 years. I want to get a newer full size sedan (2010 and up). Literally everyone I talked to has said "Just drive an old car. You don't want a loan at this age. The interest will be high and so will the payments." I tell them that I will only ever pay cash for a car. I will be going back to college when I do get a new car and I think it's best to not have to worry about if it will break or if I can afford the payment this month. If it's paid in full, I won't have to worry about payments. I'm wondering why do people immediately jump to the conclusion that I'll take a huge loan for some expensive and flashy car? I always thought it was stupid when someone does that and then complains they can't afford it. Why do people always think I'm going to take a loan? I know a lot about cars so I know what to look for when shopping.

    Best answer: If you are BUILDING your credit, then you don't NEED to be swapping vehicles right now. You still owe more than your car is worth, and if you were to trade it in for a newer or more expensive car, you'd be even deeper in debt.

  • Thinking of giving my car voluntary repossession back to the bank so I can have less bills to pay taxes, is it a good idea?

    Best answer: You're not getting the "feel-good" answer you want, and you're giving everyone a "thumbs down" because of it. Pretty silly.

    Best answer: You're not getting the "feel-good" answer you want, and you're giving everyone a "thumbs down" because of it. Pretty silly.

    Keep in mind, after they sell the vehicle at auction for pennies on the dollar, they'll want that money NOW, and will sue you if you cannot come up with it quickly. They'll win, and could possibly garnish wages depending on what state you live in. So, when you're done, you have a repo AND a judgment against you.

    It's a very myopic (short-sighted) decision to do this. Sure, it'll save you money monthly now, but you've handicapped yourself for 7-plus years.

    If you're up-to-date on payments, see if they'll defer a month or two to let you get caught up financially.

  • Should I consider purchasing a car? Please see details.?

    Best answer: It's unwise to take out a loan on a $5000 car. Why? Because any $5000 car you'd find is probably fairly old and higher mileage.

    Best answer: It's unwise to take out a loan on a $5000 car. Why? Because any $5000 car you'd find is probably fairly old and higher mileage. Older, higher mileage cars tend to need repairs sooner than later. If you take out a loan and something expensive breaks (especially if it's something that is so expensive it makes no sense to fix and/or something you simply can't afford to fix), then you're stuck with car payments on a car you can't drive. It's actually somewhat difficult to get a car loan at all (at least one that doesn't have an insanely high interest rate) on a $5000 car for that very reason. You'd have little incentive to keep paying on the loan if the car craps out on you during the term of the loan, and lenders are well aware of that fact.

    What you should probably do is wait and save up enough cash to buy a cheap car outright instead. At least if that car craps out after you've paid for it in-full, you don't owe anybody anything for months or years after the fact AND you're not paying a bank interest on top of the cost of the car either. Good luck.
