    Selected "under $300" because I always save up and pay cash, for all of my vehicles.

    Don't take this the wrong way OP.

    But what do you gain from knowing what someone views as a comfortable car payment other than somewhat knowing their financial means somewhat which is in my opinion TMI.

    i prefer to save ahead of time and pay cash...i own my HC, but pay $950 a month for my GT500....funny because my house payment is $650 and i will have my house paid for before my GT500

    ive paid cash for every car except for my gt500........ive always believed in saving up ahead of time for the things you want...when i was 19 i paid cash for a new 1990 5.0 GT Mustang off $7 per hour ($14,500)

    You're looking at it wrong...
    1) I don't know who any of your are. Some of you may know each other, but the majority it's just an Internet name that's it.

    2) The car payment tells nothing about someone's financial means. I could select $400 and have a ton of money in the bank. We're not talking celebrities here but I'm just curious as to what others will pay or won't pay. I know die hard old guys with money but don't want to pay over 500 for a car payment & they could afford it.

    3) It's optional, if you don't want to participate, no harm done. :) Your're probably on of the sub $300 guys anyways. (I kid, I kid.) :D

    With the current interest rate I would rather let my money sit in investment accounts.

    Good moto to have. Pretty impressive to buy the Mustang @ 19 of $7. Musta saved a while?
    That House payment is would make some, heck most apartment renters jealous. :)
    Must say it must be nice to pull that 70k out of the bank & drop on a car & still have money in the bank.

    The reason i picked 700 plus. Was IM a Disabled Veteran and in a way the government is helping with the purchase of my Holy Grail Car. All the years i have delt with problems. The car is going to my kids when i pass some day. Putting 10 down and finance the rest.
