I almost pity my sister right now. But i know iam better than her because of her behaviour. I need a new car, mine is dying slowly. But i want to get as much as possible out of it. Basically if i make it through winter. My Grandma asked me what car i was looking at. I buy my car outright and don't overdue it. My sister can't get a loan and is leasing it. I listed a few but the pros and cons. How i wasn't fully sure. If i wanted a car or suv type. Both roughly $4,000 to $6,000 diffeeence in price. Well my sister pipes up how she's getting a new car and it will be the trax. Which is about $ 50,000 car basically the suv i was looking at but upgraded model. I had said the features it has vs the one i was looking at do not equal the cost meaning its over priced by thousands ( btw when i bought my car i drive nlw she did the samething and claimed she needed a new car claiming its still better paying $5,000 more). I juat ignores her. She always tries to outdue me but she has no money, major debt and a boyfriend who pays everything. She makes the comment how just get the lower end car as i can't afford and handle an expensive car. Actually iam being practical here and know if something happens i can afford the car on my own unlike her. I just rolled my eyes because i know she just doesn't want me to get the suv because she needs better. Her car is fine and i offered to buy it off her. She decline. Probably because i can handle her leftovers get many years put of it while she claims all these problems with the car (my dad looked it over and only issue is the brakss needing replaved).

You're not lower class. You HAVE class unlike your sister.

@ricki_911 Your sister is insecure and is just trying to make herself feel better. Let it roll off of your back. You can support yourself and she can't.

you're very sensible because you work for your money and you know how to get what you need and want. if something happened to her boyfriend, how will your sister manage?

I forget... is your sister younger or older than you? And did she actually say you were lower class? You're not. You're responsible and reasonable and you know the difference between want and need.

Her words from her mouth . I gave her the stink eye. She wants better and thinks money makes you better. My issue with the so called lower class cars is the engine. It has less power so example winter i really put the engine to work. A less powerful engine may cause issues or a fee years issues with thr car. I can afford her car that she picked out but my view is if i pay $50,000 for a car someone hits me the next day writes it off then i am still paying this car regardless. But i want one that will last hence i wont go 3 years age wise. Just made me laugh over her comments. I know its because she has these debts and she needs to outdue me on everything.

I also don't get anything added. A basic off the line car. They can't offer me manual locks or windows now . She didn't need a new car nor wanted one unyil i had takrn my dad to the dealership to look at a car. She got wind and now she needs a new car as hers is crap.

So sorry to hear about this. Definitely you are a better person compared to your sister with what you've written.

I wish you a good day no matter what. One day you will begin to see what you truly can live without. And it's not that car.
