    When i'm getting my income tax rebate back. I wanna either buy a cheap car or saving it and putting it into a bank and save up for like 9-12 months and move out.

    I was told i should make a thread about this to see what people think.

    Car definately before moving out. Savings is good too in preparation for both, maybe for a more dependable car down the road.

    Well it depends on your situation. Why do you want to move; safety, bigger pad? Do you take public transportation often?

    Also you should be more concerned with a reliable car compared to a "cheap" car, which could end up costing you more if you have to repair it all the time.

    I say get a reliable car, make sure you have a mechanic friend to go with you. If you need to move to a better neighborhood or something then wait out 9 months and move.

    For your second point, I don't think that's a big deal...I'm Arabic and it's part of our culture to live with our parents until marriage. Actually, I see a LOT of people living with their parents. So if you think that you have to do it to fit some norm than don't. If you want to move because you need to and are ready for it, then more power to you my friend.

    I'm 25, 26 in April, and still live with my parents. Most of my friends, who are non-arabs/Muslims, live with their parents. So there is NO shame in that if that's what you're feeling.

    You mentioned earlier that you spend $15 a week on the bus. If you get a car you'll probably be spending a LOT more than that given our gas prices, and keep in mind $3.00 per gallon is going to be the norm for a VERY long time. So there's that to consider since you want to save money for moving!

    You're in Florida, right? Gas is close to 3 right?

    JAL if you want to me to CA, then skip the car and start saving. There will be plenty of public transportation and you'll save a ton in gas money, not to mention insurance and maintenence.

    OK. Are you going to buy the car in Pa. or Cali?

    Either way, I say SAVE for the move! This is a BIG move and it's going to cost a bundle and if you don't have anyone to live with it's going to be pricey at first. Save for the move. LA has a great public transport system, I think.

    Gas alone from PA to CA would be a killer if you bought the car in Pa. Buy a plane ticket, instead!

    I might be able to get a roomate. i don't know.

    I'd wanna do the one first. if i buy the car here and i'm here foe a while i might just sell it say if i buy thre car and i save for like 6-9 months then when i'm ready to leave i'll sell the car and take the transportation out there. Or maybe keep the car i don't know yet.

    Save. If you move 2 months from now or a year from now you'll just be better off with that extra money.
