I want to be debt free. I already have a small simple apartment paid in cash and paid my college debt. Now I want to buy a car instead of financing it. I have 11 to 12k including taxes to buy a car. So, I was thinking about a certified Hyundai accent. Is it a smart purchase? My main use for a car is a commute to work, that is about 30 minutes. I also plan to do some road trips from vegas (where I live) to Arizona and Utah state parks.
