I am a 20 something who just spent a large amount of savings to move from Minnesota to Washington State. I had to quit my job and move all of my belongings across the country, which I quickly learned is no cheep task. Included in all of my belongings was my 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. A car I was planning to drive as long as possible until I needed to upgrade. Unfortunately after only one month in Washington, my not so trusty vehicle dramatically died on the side of the road with no chance of revival. The options are to replace the engine for $6000-$10000, or to say goodbye and find myself a vehicle worth driving for a long time. Finding a reliable vehicle with low miles for a good price is proving to be a challenge, and I have minimal funds to work with as is. I have accepted a new full time job that I am very much looking forward to starting in the new year, but have minimal income options in the meantime. I have always disliked asking for financial assistance from those in my life because I know I am not the only one with a tight financial situation. I would not ask if I was not in great need, and any amount big or small would be a great help.
