98 Chevy Cavalier. I bought it for $1,800 three years ago and its still running. I see no reason to buy a new car when this one still gets me to work. It gets respectable ga mileage and I haven't have a car payment for 3 years. I refuse to buy into the fancy car with shiny rims trend. A car should serve its purpose at the lowest expense possible. If gas prices keep rising, I will probably start riding a bike to work, at least in the Summer. I know people who pay as much for their car note and insurance as I do on my mortgage. This is ridiculous. A car is not an investment.
