My car and I are parting ways. I can’t afford her but love her dearly. We have been together for 5 years and $16000 worth of payments. Sunday I will sell her for what I owe ($8000). I could continue to make monthly payments of over $400 or I could get a lease and SAVE $280 per month. You do the math! With my savings I will pay off at least one student loan and buy myself a “beater with a heater” (aka cheap used car for work). So with a tear of sadness I bid my Honda farewell. I will post pics of my cheapo lease next week.
