His boss has told him that if he is late again, he will be fired. Willy can't afford to lose his job. His family relies on him to pitch in $500 a month for food and household expenses, as well as $200 a month for his grandmother's medical bills. He also tries to save $400 a month for his college fund. Something has to change, so he finally decides that it is time to get a car. This case explores the details of buying a car, from the pros and cons of buying new versus used, to negotiating with a dealership over the terms of a loan, to budgeting for car expenses.
