Can dentists afford expensive cars?
What an odd question? Just about anyone can afford an expensive car if they (a) are willing to save up for it, and (b) are willing to sacrifice life's other experiences/objects!

A good rule of thumb: your monthly auto loan payment should not be more than 20% of the money you have available each month after you pay for your usual living expenses ? rent or mortgage, utilities, food and transportation, credit card payments, etc. When reviewing your budget, you should also take… into consideration other associated costs including fuel, license, registration, personal property taxes and insurance. Call your insurance company before you purchase your car to determine what the monthly insurance cost will be. If you're taking out a car loan, figure on a down payment of at least 10 percent. Lenders might be skeptical otherwise. If you have enough cash available to boost that percentage, do so. Cutting the principal of your loan will do more to slash payments than getting a lower interest rate. If you have ailing credit, which can result from a pattern of late payments, you may find yourself in the "subprime" financing arena. If you have credit problems, you should first try to work with a consumer credit counselor or other advisor. It may be possible to consolidate debts or come up with a workable repayment plan. If you show a loan officer that you are taking action to overcome the problems, they may be more willing to grant a loan at a reasonable rate. In addition, be sure to check out alternate sources for loans such as the credit union at your workplace, your bank, or other organization with which you are affiliated. As a last resort, dealers may offer special financing packages for those with credit problems. However, you might pay as much as four percentage points more for a loan. Since your car is in the top three of the list where in you will be investing (house, business and car), you should be able to spend much for it. Whether you will acquire it via loan or cash that you have, the expenses that needs to be spent does not end there. To have a properly running vehicle, you should be also willing to spend on maintenance and services. This extra payments will actually reduce more expensive stuffs in the future like repair or part change. Another factor to consider is the cost of upkeep- repairs and insurance are big factors for both new and used car purchases. If you can afford to buy a car but can't allocate the funds to repair vital parts, you are paying for something unusable. The best thing to do is to check out insurance sites- allstate and geico have very easy to use rate estimate givers. Driverside.com is a great place to check out estimated repair costs and cost of ownership for autos. (MORE)
Answer . \nIf you can pay cash, then you can afford it.. Answer . That answer is a bit lacking. If you have cash, you can afford to pay cash. Look at your current income, and expenses. If you are running a surplus after all expenses fixed (mortgage or rent, utilities etc) are paid, and you…r variable expenses are covered (groceries, entertainment etc) then you may be able to afford another car. \n. \nIf you are looking at new, there are some very attractive rates. There is no problem going into a low interest loan to pay for a car. In fact to pay cash is foolish if you can get a 0-3.9% loan. The money that you pay for the car is cheaper in the long run than if you pay cash.\n. \nI would suggest making a down payment or trading in your old car (sell it outright and use the money for a down payment).\n. \nComon Clay, you can do better!. Answer . You are right, I can do better. I think we as Americans have been brainwashed to think that we need to finance everything. A home is one thing that it is almost always necessary to finance. A car is quite another thing. After years of financing cars, I finally realized that I was stupid. There is no reason to borrow money to buy a car, unless you can get a 0% loan. Purchase what you can pay cash for and save until you can pay cash for something better. We all think we must drive a nice car from day one. Why? Drive a beater and save your money. The feeling of walking into a dealership and paying cash for a car is wonderful. I have paid cash for the last three I have bought. Also buying a new car is a terrible idea. Purchase a 1-3 year old car with a Dealer Certified warranty. You save lots of money and get a way better warranty than on a new car. The last car I bought was a 2004 Certified Honda Accord. It had 13,000 miles and came with a 7 year 80,000 mile warranty. Way better than the 3/36 of a new Accord. I also saved around $3,500 versus buying it new. Let someone else loose all that money buying new. Put you money in a savings account and drive that beater until you can pay cash. Financing a car which depreciates at an alarming rate and is worth less every month is a bad idea. Don't listen to the people who are brainwashed. (MORE)
In terms of price and fuel economy, I would advice that you check out smaller cars. They are affordable and can give you a good mileage. A good example for this are the Smart Cars. Though small, it can give you a good mileage, its cheap and it scored 5 stars in its safety/crash test. You may conside…r other smart car lines. Make use of cars classifieds found online if you are searching for used cars. Compare car values and pricing to get the best car deal. (MORE)

Answer . Sell it on your own. You may not be able to sell it for the amount owed, but work out a deal with the bank to finish paying for the vehicle at a reduced rate after it's sold. Most lending institutions would much rather work out something than have it go into bankruptcy. That, plus it's …a lot better for YOUR credit history if you take matters into your own hands and deal with it now. (MORE)
\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf you have driven it/owned it for any length of time, no dealership will just 'take it back'.\n. \nYou can always sell it (dealership or private party) and perhaps recoup a bulk of your money. Visit kbb.com for the value of your car so you know what you can expect to sel…l it for.\n. \nGood luck!\n. \n. \n . \n . \nNo.\n. \nRegardless of the reason or the length of time the borrower has had the vehicle, a voluntary relinquishment of a vehicle is still considered a repossession.\n. \nThat being the case, the borrower would be subject to all legal action and penalties pertaining to a repossesion that are allowed under the laws of the state where the borrower resides, or in some cases the state where the vehicle was purchased.

If you have any other questions about the plan you can email me. If you would like me to, I could check the participating dentists in that area, but I would need a zip code or address. They also have medical plans for as little as 29.95 /month. Let me know! Good Luck... The website is: www.DeliveringOnThePromise.com/nicolec. my email: Dental_talk@scentfuldesigns.com (MORE)

Get a job if you don't already have one. Save your money for both the cost of the car and insurance. Buy the car and keep some money saved for scheduled service and unscheduled repairs.
it might be referring to the fact that the cost of a car is not only that of the car itself, but also car expenses. For example: preventive maintenance (oil changes, fluid level maintenance, etc.), repairs, cost of fuel, insurance, registration, etc.
I cant really judge you, so i cant tell what is an affordable car for you, but i would say buy a European car ( BMW, Mercedes, Audi ), if not a new one a second hand one.
you need lots of money, but most of its not where you think. If you can learn to do some simple self repairs, you can save a whack of cash. also, dealerships charge an arm and a leg for almost everything, so if you can find somewhere reputable that's cheaper, by all means. The single most expensive …part of car ownership is the insurance, especially if you have had an accident. Repairs are also a huge expense, especially drivetrain parts (engine, transmission, axles, etc.) Gas is still a large cost, but compared to insurance, its small potatoes. (MORE)

Electric cars are as safe as petrol cars. The voltage of the batteries may be an issue in an accident but can be more easily contained than a petrol spill. The price will come down as battery technology and manufacturing improves. Lithium is a very common element, and lithium batteries are good tech…nology, however manufacturing plants need to be more common and that is happening. There is also the "New Technology" surcharge that comes from first development costs. The price will drop dramatically as factories tool up and ic engines are rep[laced. The technology is an electric car is simpler and less bulky, other than the battery size and weight. Electric RC cars are more common than petrol RC cars, and faster as well. (MORE)

The best way to decide how much you can afford to spend on a house is to go to your banks website and find a mortgage calculator. You will need to figure out how much you spend a month on bills, food, and other expenses so that you are still able to pay them. Also, if you are looking at buying a hou…se start saving for a down payment as this can affect your monthly payments. The bigger the down payment, the less your mortgage payments will be. How much house you can afford is based upon how much you make in a year along with other expenses. To figure out how much you have for a house add up all expenses used then subtract that from you total income. (MORE)

Figure out your total income. Figure out all of your expenses that you have to live. What ever is left over is what you can afford for a car payment but don't base the car you want on that. Remember, you will need to buy insurance and you will have other expenses. My rule of thumb is that the valu…e of all of your vehicle's, I'm talking about cars, trucks, boats and their Sea-Doo sisters, motorcycles, and anything else like this-should not total more than half your annual income. Why? It's because all of these kinds of things go down in value. You never want half of your income going into things whose value is dropping like a rock. You don't need a $20,000 car if you're making $30,000 a year. That's just stupid. Think about it this way. If you're making that kind of money, and I walk up and tell you I've got an investment opportunity that will turn $20,000 of your hard-earned income into $12,000 in just three or four years, are you going to take me up on the offer? If you've got a brain in your head, the answer's no! Now, I'm okay with it if you make $300,000 a year and buy a $20,000 car if you pay cash. That's like most people running out and buying a Happy Meal. It's just not a big deal! Do not buy a new car. Buy a 1 or 2 year old car and save lots of money. (MORE)
