So, last week my trusty Blazer went and died on me. Almost 15yrs old, 5 of those years on my watch..it gave it's all. Poor thing just wouldn't turn over anymore. Which means it's probably my starter. The whole electrical system works just fine still. But nothing from the engine. But, it's done it's time and all and now, although a bit sooner than I planned by about 2 months and all I have to now go look for something new. This is will be the first time I'm buying something from a dealer off a lot instead of from someone I know. I've lived my life on buying used cars on peoples front lawns and drive ways, everything under 4K and just used as long as I could. This is the first time I'm looking into getting a 10K car loan, and using 3K in cash as down payment to go and buy something new..or, well, newer. I'm still planning on used, Unless I can find something new under 10K that would fit the bill. Anyways..Just posting and thinking out loud..i've never actually done this before, the whole loan and dealer..any info or advice?
