Today I took my Nissan Sentra in to get the flashing tire light off and have it looked at. Nissan did fix it for me. However upon a further inspection of the whole car there's over $1500 worth of repairs that need fixed. Basically I don't want to use my credit cards and pay 15% when I can trade this in. My fico score at experian is 821. Arizona Federal approved me for $20000 for a Versa. Basically I don't want to pay $28,000 again for a car.

I call this performance art. Nobody could make that many bad decisions, continue to deny reality, reject all reasonable advice, keep coming back to a board that never tells him what he wants to hear, and still have assets plus a good credit score.

If I still thought you were serious, I'd tell you to budget, to learn to let money sit, to stop putting money into the market, to repair the frickin' 4 year old car and make it last 10 years.

But I don't think you're serious. I think you're performance art. If you were serious, you would have either found *SOMETHING* in the advice people have given you that made you modify how you manage finances, or you would have written us all off as unrealistic and unhelpful and stopped coming to post updates.
