1. Do you have 10k+ you are willing to give away?
2. Are you willing to not get upset or bothered when you're stuck paying 10k+?
3. Do you have a steady job that you can prove steady income in?
4. And are you willing to work that job endlessly to never get a paycheck?

If YES to all, go for it.

There's no reason she can't find a cheaper car. I have one that is old that I paid $1500 for and it still runs like a top. Yeah, it's got some rust but I paid cash. She can too.

If she wants it that badly have her PARENTS co-sign. See how fast they say no and you'll get the general picture.

People who are in love want so badly to help their love interest....then later when that person breaks up with you, that person stops paying on the loan and your credit goes to pot....

He will co-sign and then forever after he can go on CD and tell people never to do it because it NEVER works out, but first he has to prove it to himself by burning $9 K that he can't afford to lose.
Telling him not too is wasting your breath because he is in love..!
He is thinking with the wrong head, and that is always very expensive.
Hope he tells us what he decides to do... I have a mean streak...!

Don't co-sign any loans for anyone unless you're married to them (and don't have any doubts about the marriage).

If it's your kid trying to get his first car loan I could maybe see that being okay. My dad co-signed for my first car loan but he knew I had a job and was credit worthy.

Don't do it!!! You are making a huge mistake, co-signing for your gf. Please listen to others on this site who are telling you "NO."

How much are the medical bills left to pay? What kind of car is it? What how much is it? Just get a cheaper car and pay cash for it.

Why did you just revive a thread from over a year ago? I am sure he made his decision by now.

it's amazing how many of these scams are out there. My junk email box is full of them. The problem is, there are people dumb/naïve enough to believe then and it only takes 1 to make it worth the scammers time.

By the way, anyone willing to take bets on whether the OP and the fiancé are now married? I'll bet the answer is "It didn't work out"
Hopefully he was smart enough to listen to the advice here and not get financially involved with the ex.
