I'm selling my Cutlass, and I'm waiting a couple years before buying too. I may even wait until 2012, as I think 6 years is at least how long you should usually keep a car. By 2012 I'll have my Cobalt for 6 years, and I'll be 25 so I'll get my insurance discount. I hope to make about $50,000 a year by then. Luckily the higher cost of living and the higher wages that go with it actually make cars relatively cheaper in Southern California. I lead a pretty simple life and don't buy much nor eat out much. I have no credit card debt and a couple thousand in savings. My only debt is a very manageable car loan and decent student loans. I think I'll be able to afford it without any other extraordinary measures.
