2 1/2 years ago Billy bought a 2000 Nissan because he needed to get back and forth to work. He paid about 2K for it and it lasted him this long but it was really starting to give him some major issues. The transmission was going and he was putting almost $300 a month of transmission fluid in just to get back and forth to work each month. It was time to get rid of the car. It would have cost almost as much as he paid for the car to get the transmission replaced. Not a good idea. He was able to get 2200 for a trade in on his Nissan and got a 2010 HHR. Very nice car and it is bigger. The Nissan was really small. I can get in and out of the HHR much easier. I like it. Billy may have to live with me until he pays it off...lol...but oh well. Gosh I wish he could find a better job but this area is just so depressed. He has applied everywhere. He has an interview Monday somewhere. I am so proud of him because his very first car was a POS that Cory passed down to him to learn to drive and it was barely held together with duct tape. Then he paid cash for the second one and now he has moved up to this 2010. This one should last him for a long time. He is very careful with his finances and worked very hard to get his credit score up to where he could qualify for a loan. He had a very good score I think, especially since he doesnt make that much money.
