Travel spatially faster

The pickup truck with flames I wanted to buy was already bought and then I found a Corolla (great car, boring car) but I have some confidence issues with the seller so now I don't have a car still. Should I buy the Corolla anyway? I've spent some pretty good time looking for a car and I don't like anything about this process. Is it really worth it to buy a car just so I can go to this:

?

Be patient, I think.

Buying a car is miserable, BUT being at a kickass series of readings in Ann Arbor would be magical. Tough decisions!

Be patient. And use that thingy where you can check on a car's history. It saved me from a bad purchase once.

yes it's totally worth it to buy a car to go to that thing. buy a car right away. don't think, buy. and also, maybe then you will spend less time at bus stops.

If you don't love it, don't buy it. that's my motto.

I think Toyota is always the way to go. ANY respectable or decent seller will let you take a used car to your mechanic BEFORE the purchase.

I'm too lazy to buy a car I think. I like your advice best Kathryn. Everyone else who wants me to get carfax reports and take it to the mechanic, you can laugh when the time comes, but I'm gonna say my research is sufficient at this point.
