    Excellent article, Chris! We have paid cash for all of our vehicles since 1982. Your advice on taking a cashiers check to the dealership is great and something we’d never thought of doing.

    I’ve always bought cars, new or used with cash. And now that I’m early retired and financially independent I only buy used cars, but do buy them with cash. My wife also buys with cash but she gets a new car usually although the “new” one she is driving now is one she bought with cash in 2006. And I totally agree, if you cannot pay cash then you are buying way more car than you can afford. One reason I’m retired and my buddies back at the plant aren’t is they threw away a fortune in payments on giant pickups for them and Suburban’s for their wives. I hope they really enjoyed the vehicles because I really enjoy not being at work!

      Hahaha – right on. I’m trying to get there some day. Buying things we can afford with cash is a great habit to get into. Well done exercising that habit over a longer time period!
      Thanks for the comment. 😎

  3. I am so glad that you did the research and made the perfect choice for our family. i wouldn’t even know where to begin the process of car searching since technically you have always done it. I love how you detailed out the process you took to buy the car.
    So glad I have you!
