Broke Ass Financial Coaching: Should I Buy a Car or not?

Hey Coach Sizzle, should I buy a car or not? -KT
I am extremely passionate about giving advice on buying cars. Why? I have made many mistakes namely leasing new versus buying used. At one time, when I was 24 years old I was not only leasing one vehicle, but two vehicles. Wow. Really? What an ass! Ok, well at this point now, I have not owned a car for almost four years and I am super ecstatic about it. I hate to brag and everything but I ride San Francisco’s public transportation system, Muni, and I flippin’ love it. I don’t even buy a fastpass because I know that I spend less on fares individually based on how much I ride.
