Hello,
We need to buy a car. However, we are on a limited budget and we do not have cash to buy a used car. My DH receives disability payments and I have just started working part-time.

What are our options? Is there such a thing as taking over someone else's car payment?

Do you have any cash saved for a down payment?  How are your credit scores?  Do you have space in your monthly budget for the payment and additional costs?

Hi, we do have space in our monthly budget for the payment, but we do not have cash for the down payment and our credit is spotty.

We just traded-in two awful vehicles and got one brand new car. That counted as a nice down payment. I was really shocked but dealers will take almost anything.
