Chosen Car

3 Last Chosen Cars

After seeing different cars my last 3 choices that I chose to stick with is my orginial choice which is the 2015 Honda Civic, a 2016 Mitsubushi Lancer, and a 2016 Toyota Corolla. I feel like my orginial choice was better because it is basically close to all the 2 other chosen cars. Also in my opinion I think its better because I chose the right trim level and everything that I liked and put it in that car. My other 2 choices also better for me because as I said before they are almost the same price but insurance, gas money, and etc also can be something to think about.

Overall Conclusion

Overall I still happen to go with the car that i have chosen (2015 Honda Civic).

Purchase Price: $18,334


Down Payment: $1,000


= $17,334 / 60 = $288.90 monthly.

Afterall, I still would chose a 2015 Honda Civic. Personally I would be believe that I am able to afford this car with a part time job and including gas, insurance, and etc.
