I need a car. I have a car, but I think that it's going to cost more to repair than I paid for it. So, I'm thinking of going with a lease. Does anyone know where I can get a lease without a cosigner? I want a new car and I only want to lease for 36 months. Background...August 2000, bought 1989 Plymouth Reliant with 38,000 original miles on it for $2000 Cash. Now, the check engine light keeps coming on and I believe its the transmission. As many of us know, transmissions are VERY expensive and I don't have any money to put towards that. I don't have any money to put towards a down payment on any car. The Kelly Blue book value for trade-in is $675. So, as you can see, This situation sucks. Does anyone have any suggestions? If you know of a cheap repair shop in Rochester, NY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!! Thanks in advance.
