The best way to buy a car and not be ripped off is to shop around for a car a private owner is selling. You may see one parked in a yard or even craigslist. Being able to spot junk is a requirement though.

I went to crossroads, a little too bit far away from town to be honest.

They said the process was taking way too long and they would call me today (code word for = we're not going to finance you)

Yeah that just means they are looping you through more and more lenders.

If they don't approve you or really can't buy a car cash privately, you might be stuck going to those buy here pay here. There is one on North Tyron, Independence Auto Solutions, LLC. A friend of mine who was struggling with finances managed to get a car there last month. This should be the last drastic solution though. If you can use public transportation and save up for a cheap car from a private seller, it's the way to go.

I would use public transportation but I live in W Arrowood and S Tryon St, and I need to go everyday to Indian Land, SC.

Public transportation doesn't put me anywhere near where I have to go

Ouch that is a drive. Good luck, I hope you find a vehicle.

I already found a vehicle, now I'm struggling with Insurance.... it's way too expensive, near the $200/mo and that's only INSURANCE... I would pay for the car about $400/mo

That's $600/mo only in car + insurance, let alone gas, food, rent and utilities.
