My advise, wait until the divorce is final and see what you can afford. Divorce never favors men.

Damn homie - Ima hafta put you on the payroll! Of course, and I apologize in advance, but due to Obamacare I will not be able to offer health care at this time and you will be limited to 25 hours per week...

It's getting better, but yeah, men get screwed. Thankfully my soon-to-be-ex is not motivated by money, which is a good thing, 'cause I don't have any.

Re: Should I Buy A Passat?

I think I'm down to one of the following when I finally do pull the trigger:

1) Passat
2) Altima
3) Camry
4) Jetta

I'm sure it'll be a matter of a combination of price, features, and miles - definitely want low miles and 'certified' if possible. Found a few that have been in accidents for low prices...a bent frame is just what I need...

No Sir you will not. I can not afford to be on another payroll. I will however accept your tax ID so I can claim the charitable time .

I always help my brothers from other mothers... !

I would go Camry out of that list. I am not a fan of Nissan, and your going to pay more for a German water pump than you will for a Japanese water pump...

Re: Should I Buy A Passat?

I found a few more fine "pre-owned" examples ...

Citroen 2CV ... a Classic for sure.

Re: Should I Buy A Passat?

Cars, cats & Zoey ... this thread has it all, eh? .

In regards to your list, I don't think you can go wrong with a Camry & I knew a young lady once who had a Jetta and was really happy with it, but I'd lean toward the Camry, if the Volvo deal falls through, .
