    really? never woulda thought that..not like i have taken the thing off...and welded on it..and put it back on...which by the way was probably the hardest thing we did all week :laugh: either he has just hit one too many times or something is fubar with the frame or bumper cause it literially took us like 3 hours to get it back on hahaha

    But idk..my front bumper has taken some rock rash. Mostly the very bottom or the corners. But yea.

    Still doesn't seem worth it to me. It does look incredible though.

    oooohh really? What motor tranny is in it? hows the build quality in your eyes? and little bugs you have found with it?
    right and the fact that whether or not it is the best option, it is done to the bumper and adds value

    Get a credit card and use it for gas and just pay it off every month. Credit is all about length of time and not amount of money.

    Car loans are typically 5 to 6 years long which is really short in terms of credit history and my understanding is that they drop off your record about 2-3 years after you pay them off... I bought my Tacoma with a loan thinking the same thing about credit and found out later it isn't super helpful...

    Credit cards on the other hand stay on your record forever if you keep using them and you build a life long credit history. You just have to make sure you use it and that you pay it off using the monthly bill they send you. Banks don't typically report payments made outside of the monthly bill they send you. So if you paid it at the bank in person it looks as though you don't use your card...

    times are different these days. god bless my parents as they work their asses off to get me and my bro on our feet and an education. they were able to open a credit card in his name, but they made the payments through college so he was building credit.
    then the banks all went to shit and revised their ways of doing things and since im not employed, i cannot get a card. i have a card but its a joint card between my dad and me, he pays it, but i dont get any credit history for it.

    ill get one as well when i get out on my own with a job but a car loan is a good start. better than nothing.

    also i think if you have to have a car loan for 5-6 years, you cannot afford the car. 2-3 years is all you should do.

    i couldnt imagine making payments on something thats depreciated that much by that point.

    Thanks for the input. I'm curious how clean the "fab" work is. But if it is in great condition, I'm thinking 700$ isn't bad either...with the lights :p

    You're average car loan is a 5 year loans. Some banks started doing 6 year loans somewhat recently. I didn't even have any say in mine. It was a 5 year loan and that was even paying half of the tacoma off with the downpayment. You can pay it off early and longer loans typically have lower interest rates so it is usually better to get a 5 year loan and just pay it off earlier rather than get a 2 or 3 year loan.

    i mentioned my plan to buy the car to build credit after school to my dad and he was at first like "great, what impracticle car is he gonna want now" and when i told him what it was, he thought i was a damn good idea. :)

    It's a 2011 hatchback with the 1.6 i-4 (120hp) and auto trans. I'd wish for a better trans or just the manual, the auto is wierd/not always smooth. Build quality is great imo, just simple clean and tight. We've got 42k on it and she still gets 40 mpg highway in the summer and like 37 with the winter tires on in the winter. She commutes 50 miles a day so it's awesome. I'd also make sure you get the armrests in the middle haha. It really is a solid car.

    here it is with the winters on :cool:

    Thanks Marc! I believe the ST is the same engine, only boosted. is it bad that i really want the ST because of the Recaro seats :anonymous: also the only option in the ST is the 6 speed manual so win there!

    Glad to hear the good word on the quality, as the ford trucks ive driven, although a bit older, were all shit. lol

    DEM BUCKETS :drool:

    ok cool thanks for the info. since im a year out on a big purchase like that, you should hit me up if anything major happens.

    and lol thats how my trucks been driven too and i am surprised there arent any rattles or squeaks inside. dash shifts around occasionally but a firm push towards the windshield solves it lol

    also either someone snagged my headphones from the computer lab before my exam or my dumbass left them somewhere yesterday. i hate when i do dumb shit like that :mad: had to buy cheap inner ear buds.
