No, I think I'm mis-wording this. The rims aren't new, the tires are. However, I was NOT told about the warranty I paid for that covers damages if I dent the rims/a tire blows out within a certain amount of time. Still crummy, but too late now I guess >.> that's what I get for not questioning the fee.
I wanted to wait and keep looking, but truth be told I know zero about cars. You could sell me a piece of junk and I wouldn't know. My dad knows a bit, uncle knows a decent amount since he was a mechanic for a few years, so I just trusted them. They said it was good, so I took it. I'm not sure it was a good idea but I guess what is done is done. I just hope it doesn't come back to bite me.
Next car, when I have more time to look, I might look at private sale. I did consider that Focus that had 150,000 miles, but it needed a new timing belt ($800 or so), water pump ($120 or so), and didn't sound so hot when it was being turned on.
I originally really wanted a Corolla, but in my area they sell FAST and cost a lot. I couldn't find one even close to my price range with low mileage. I really wished I'd had time to wait...I had planned to start browsing when I hit 6k in savings, but then I my Mitsubishi decided it was done and, well, I really have no one willing to let me put the miles on their car, or who will take me, to a job as far away as mine is, for as long each day as I work, 3-4 days a week.
Eh...suffice to say, growing up stinks. And it's a bit scary.
