Moving Up in Car

Jay's old car is in good condition, but he wants to save up and upgrade.

QUESTION: Jay is driving his old car right now and it’s in good condition. He wants to get a fun car and is trying to decide how he can save up the money to do it. He makes $38,000 a year. What does Dave say?

ANSWER: Go get a deal on a bargain car and use the profit from that to move you into another car. Buy a car and save up the car payment for a few months, then move up in car ... and pay cash! Once you’ve upgraded in car, do it again for another few months. Before you know it, you’ll be driving a paid-for car.
