With gas prices skyrocketing, I am faced with a car dilemma. I am currently driving a 2002 Ford Mustand GT. This is highly impractical with the state that our ecomony is in. Gas prices are over $3 a gallon and continuing to climb. So, what are my options? I can either keep complaining while I sink hundreds of dollars a month into my gas tank, or I can buy a car for the trade-in value of mine. I am not looking to purchase a new car, or make monthly car payments...so, I need a reliable, used, gas-efficient vehicle. Any suggestions?
Also, the bf seems to think that I will find the best deal on Ebay. Has anyone every bought a car off Ebay? Did the transaction go smoothly and would you do it again? It makes me extremely nervous to purchase a huge ticket item, such as a car, on the web. But, hey, people buy houses everyday off the internet without even seeing them.
