Finance the first couple if you have to, but also be putting money away for a replacement so that you don't have to ever finance a car again.

I don't see any problem with financing a car if the terms are right.

Okay, I added some bolding to emphasize the key part of the first statement.

Having money saved up to buy a car doesn't preclude anyone from 'financing a car if the terms are right'. However, not having money/assets to purchase a car when one is needed will likely require financing on whatever terms are offered, even if the terms are crappy.
