    Some just can't live without a payment hanging over their head. Believe it or not, if you save up and pay cash for things you actually spend less money.

    I was suprised at all the people that are against financing things on here.

    I paid prolly $200 more by financing my 2003 chevy new than if I would have paid flat cash for it. Big deal money is made and spent.

    As for diesels Isuzu NPR.

    As for daily If you do it right you can get money cheap these days, its not that bad.

    If $200 is no big deal, than just send me $200. I'm just saying, financing is not a good deal. The last truck I purchased, I wrote the check for what I would pay for it, which was slightly over Wholesale after going round and round with the sales mgr and drove it home that day. You have the carrot when you have the money.

    I'm just curious.
