How much should I spend on a car ?

Recommended Posts

I tried using some online calculators but they seem to have pretty stupid algorithms. How much should I spend on a car versus idk, say how much I make in a year ? I don't spend a huge amount of time in my car maybe 1 hr/day and I won't be taking road trips in it. Basically I'm trying to justify buying an '06ish S2000 ;P! Thoughts ?

within 300 miles the cheapest one is $13000 and it's rebuilt. I'm not buying a rebuilt title car. I've seen others for around $15k with ~80k miles.

you're looking at at least 20-30 grand for an 06+ S2000

with that kind of money, you're better off buying a new car. IMO, unless that's EXACTLY what you want and you know you'll be happy with it.

there's plenty available at that price, I've decided to spend less and get an older car.
