(would be looking at used cars in the not-exceeding-$10K range, with your income...)

Hey Booa ...

Thanks for your comments. Clarification on your point above. Is it gross income or disposal income you mean? My gross income (salary) exceeds $70,000. If that's the number you meant, I'm curious why you think that level of income could only afford a $10,000 or less car.

Not a criticism, just curious.

Now my disposable income, after mortgage payments, condo fees, student loans, and other obligations, is certainly a bit lower and certainly worth of the "how much can I afford" debate.

Thanks again.
