Not sure if you guys remember me, but I had 2004 Chevy cavalier. It was terrible. The clearcoat was all peeled. The interior cracked so much, that the air vents fell off. I saved and saved money for years. I didn't buy clothes. I didn't eat at restaurants. I lived frugally for the past 2 years. I would post on this forum all the time, because I wanted something better so badly.

I finally found a good deal at a Mazda dealership and bought a 2014 Mazda 6 iTouring with tech package, which comes with navigation, 9 bose speakers, and other goodies. All for $17000, factory certified and 23k miles.

I had 25k in the bank. I was going to pay cash, but decided to put 10k down and finance the rest. I got a 4.5% interest rate, which considering my credit score of 640, it is not that bad, but thanks to the downpayment. I'm paying $200 a month for the car and insurance comes at $80 a month for full coverage with $500 deductibles.

The dealer manager told me. I can see that you can't wait to get rid of that car. I said good bye to my old car. Now I only need to tint the windows for it to look better.

Not mine, but it looks exactly the same

Enjoy. I hope it serves you well.

Once you pay it off, just wait and see how that will improve your credit score.

Remember lurking around your post. Congratulations on your purchase, those Mazda's are nice! Brother-in-law had one as a rental last summer and he beat the ever living **** out of it to no end. Was very pepper and quick for a little engine with great gas mileage.

Good buy!
