What is that car payment actually costing me?
Cars, here is southern California we certainly can't get around without one. There's no way for public transportation to take us across a metropolis as geographically widespread as we are. We are over 200 miles north and south and about 100 miles east and west, covering close to 20M people. There's the beaches, wild animal park and zoo to name just a few in San Diego, the Riviera of Orange County from Dana Point to Huntington Beach, the technology hub of the greater Irvine area, Fashion Island, Disneyland and of Course the Real House Wives in Orange County, the Inland Empire has the mountains and deserts, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, movie stars, corporate moguls there's a lot to cover in Los Angeles too. Since public transportation is not going to take you from your home near the coast to a weekend in the desert or the mountains or from San Clemente to a Lakers game you absolutely must have a car to get around. The question is new or used and lease, finance or pay cash.
