My girlfriend recently purchased a new car (new to us), an ’06 Jetta, and it’s given me a case of car envy. My Scion xB, great when I bought it: good gas mileage, plenty of headroom, and reliable has really become quite boring: 0-60 in 12 seconds, looks that make women look somewhere else and a high, tinny whine while accelerating. Given my current employment state (read not) I don’t have a good ability to finance a car. Instead, I’m going to try to flip up into a better car.
Simple plan of action: sell my current car through any of the classified sites, research into the best selling cars with the best margin that I can afford, buy it and flip it. Rinse & repeat ( no more than five times in a year, though) until I have a car I like… any suggestions?
I will keep people updated along the way.
