In fact it will show smart people that you're being smart, and that you value money by not sinking it into depreciating money holes like fancy cars (esp the CL which is dropping in value every minute of the day like a heavy rock in deep water.)

If you are in a financial bind you need to wake up and smell the roses. Having cars that make you look good but with no real money in the bank is like wearing a big cowboy hat and having no cattle.

Sorry but I'm sick of this bs of irresponsible people underwater all the time. Yeah, "shit happens" because you let it happen......
i appreciate the feed back, but i guess i worded it wrong. When i said financial issues everyone thought i was going bankrupt lol, but no what i meant was im making less money than i did before so maintaining the cl is fine for me for now , but as a daily i rather have something more frugal and cheaper. I was lucky enough to be in a position where i had enough money to pay the CL off but now as my income as decreased i simply want something cheaper for a day to day.
