Well I can see it making sense since banks are not handing out unsecured debt anymore, it's always easy to repo a car.

This is interesting and right on point. Not sure if you've ever heard of a guy and a guy named Eric Miranda. He's a financial guru with real down to earh business and money advice. He was saying the same thing. Credit is not the way to go and you're better off buying used cars instead of taking out loans. Sounds like a good idea instead of going into debt.
