Default How are you purchasing your used Honda S2000?

Let's try this again, since my previous attempt was a total failure....

Dear all,

*NOTE* This thread is in regards to financial choices and the Honda S2000. If you think it's too invasive of a question to be asked on a forum, I will take no offense if this thread is ignored and/or removed.

With that out of the way, I'd like to know how you guys are purchasing your used Honda S2000?

Did you buy it straight cash money?
Financed through a used dealership?
Financed through a bank and bought the car through a local/forum listing?

I am beginning my long search for a Honda S2000 with no purchase imminent, but this is going to be a very expensive toy for me and I'd like to know how purchased yours. Thanks!

The best way to finance a used car (assuming you can't pay cash) is via a Credit Union.

The problem is they often only finance cars that are within like 5 or 6 uears old max. And then the rates aren't as good as for cars less than 3 yo.

So finding a place willing to finance a car this old could be challenging. This is ome reason shady used car dealers still exist in this world. People who need daily transportation but can't afford even a 6 yo car, and also can't even afford buying a $2k piece o carp for cash. So they have to finance with used dealer, and pay stoopit rates.

Maybe a personal loan? Or a CU that offers loans for specialized cars. Like classics and such.

Thank you all for answering! So it looks like a good majority of you are buying it cash money dolla dolla bills.

Also, thanks for clarifying the troubles of financing an older car. I too looked and at a quick glance, I couldn't even see financing option for anything older than model year 2012. Now I know why! Thank you.

I don’t believe in financing toys (or much of anything really). Straight cash homie.
