Answers:

Can someone trade in a car if still owe on it and unregistered?

Baby, I think you should buy whatever you damn well want to, BUT -- I question your choice of automobiles. Saabs are odd at best, downright pains in the butt at worst. Their realibility is questionable, maintenance is expensive and like all european cars replacement parts are looney-toons expensive. I would advise that you attempt to look at this deal without the emotional aspect attached.

Honda or Acura?

its alright to have a dream car,if you think it will suit your needs for now then id say get it,if that's really what you want to do,i own a repair shop,and i have drove a lot of Saab's,they are very nice cars,the one your looking at is a little high on price though,i don't think its worth that much,unless its in mint condition,and i mean absolutely perfect,so its something to think about,we all have our dream cars,but once you get them,they don't seem all that nice once the new part of it wears off,but if your ok with the idea,and everyone else is,then go for it,you never know once you get it,you may decide it wasn't worth it, i have seen this happen a few times before,good luck,i hope this help,s.

Saabs do not enjoy the reputation for reliability that Lexus, Infinity, or Acura have, but if you HAVE to have it, go on.

It depends on what is more important to you, reliability or "cool" I suppose.

For a used car is highway miles better than having city miles?


A young couple (on vacation, no less) came in with a coolant leak. Mechanic took a look at it and said "It's the water pump and I can't do it today"

Buying a car?


For some unfathomable reason, Saab had decided to be different from the rest of the world of automakers and put the water pump (which usually lasts about 5 years or so) at the BACK of the engine instead of the front where it's easily accessible!!! There is no way to remove that water pump without pulling the engine. I felt so bad leaving this couple stranded like that but there was nothing we could do for them.

I'm about as pratical and as-a-matter-of-fact as they come. So let me throw a guilt trip your way and see if you fall, so to speak.

First, let talk about how you're planning on spending you money. You'd pay $22K for an 8 year old vehicle just to have the wind blowing in your hair when you could buy a 1 or 2 year old vehicle for the same price? And you're trading 3 cars to do it? Doesn't make a bit of sense to me. Does it really to you? I didn't think so.

What are the best/worst makes of cars?


Second, let talk a worst-case-God-forbid type senario, you are driving along in your old Saab Convertable, you have an unavoidable accident. Your 2 yr old is crushed in the car seat after you car flips during the accident. Not pretty, but you and your older children might be able to duck and be ok. You 2 yr old won't have that luxury. But your hair will be able to blow in the wind in the meantime.

Third, patience is a virtue. And waiting until you can safely afford to have a vehicle you want will build some character of sorts. Unless this car is going to be an investment and restored to be sold later, wait. You're going to find, just like most folks who get to live out their fantasies, the fantasy is about 20 times better than the reality. And the let down is about 20 times worse.

When I'm sixteen can I drive to Ohio?


If you didn't have a 2 yr old, I would have just said what I always say...buy what you want, but most of all, buy what you can afford. But considering the safety of your children above all else, get something that will keep them safe for now, and buy what you really want later.
