A 1999 Mitsubishi Galant- and you want to make payments?! WHO is offering you a deal like this? WHY would you want to pay WAY too much money for a 14year old, worn out car? I bet I could find a better fourteen year old car here on the Bay Area CraigsList, today, for $700. WHAT will you do when you are barely scrapin' by, having spent $700, and making monthly payments, and the car breaks?

Are you sure you want to finance something that old? It's pretty risky!! -Jim

He sure did, Daniel. It's a 1999 model. I also understand that everyone doesn't have tons of money to work with. What's wrong with it? Why blow $700.00 on a 14 year old car that might not want to run. Better to spend it on something newer from one of those buy here pay here places. If credit rating is poor or insufficient, I believe, that's the way to go. HTH. -Jim

sorry my bad I didn't see the fine print under the header that says 99 model,,, but anyways what would you pay for a 99 Galant ? you don't know how much in total hes paying for it what trim level it is how many miles, condition, maintenance history, or anything else to make a snap judgment,

Not a snap judgment. You're right, Daniel, I know nothing about this car. A 14 year old vehicle can either be a nice well maintained low mileage dependable car. Or a 14 year old junker that will leave you walking more than driving. So with the limited information I have I say leave it where it is. Example: would you pay $700.00 for a 2003 S10 Pick Up Truck with 276,000 miles on it? If you knew nothing else about it? Would you tell a friend or coworker to buy it?

Snap judgments are what I get paid for- oh, wait! I'm not getting paid! What if this Galant is just a piece of junk, mechanically, he pays $700 for it (which is a lot of money to me) and he gets it down the road and the engine goes out? or the tranny? or any number of other heinous repair bills? He's out the $700 PLUS he's still making payments- on something that doesn't roll down the road anymore, something he doesn't have the money to fix- can you say NIGHTMARE- just play the game where the odds are a little better, that's all I'm sayin'- start by comin' up with a little more money- that's how most nightmares start, with someone tryin' to cheap out

no Js08016 I wouldn't pay anything for anything without knowing anything about it ,,,,BUTTTT ill bet he has some knowledge about it ... your the one that knows NOTHING about it, NOT HIM lmao... and jamnblues who cares what you are or are not getting paid,, he point to both of you is that you don't know how much hes paying for a car in whatever condition,,, sounds to me like you think that 700 is too much period, galants are good cars btw not known to be junk so maybe hes only paying 1500 for a good condition galant and getting a good deal the point is you DONT KNOW how much for what until you do you CANT make that judgment that's all im saying and what does 14 year old car have to do with anything. I didn't know cars turned to junk after a certain age if its low mileage and or cared for then it could be 30 years old, so I guess you would say I was stupid when I paid 3500 for my 92 dodge stealth RT TT with, if I remember right, 150k on It,,, all im saying is no one can say its a bad deal til they know how much is being charged for what with how many miles, that's it, that's all period
