Are you in the market for a new car?  Before you spend a ton of money on a new vehicle that will lose the majority of its worth in the first year, check out one of these dependable used vehicles made in 2015.  Your wallet and retirement account will thank you!If you are familiar with my blog, you know how I feel about car loans.  If not, check it out here: 5 Reasons Car Loans Are A Bad Idea. Cars lose value extremely quickly and vehicle loans are a plague to your monthly financial situation.  I highly recommend purchasing a used vehicle (in cash) over a new one.  Used vehicles can be just as reliable as new ones and cost a fraction of the price!  J.D. Power conducted a study in 2018¹ and found the following list of 2015 cars were the most dependable based on the performance in following categories:

  • Exterior

Hi!  My name is Ryan and I have a passion for personal finance and education.  I am married and have three children, a girl and two boys all under the age of ten.  My wife stays home with the kids so it can be challenging to live off one income.  Much of what I write is based off my personal experiences and what I have learned in the course of my life. My financial journey began when my wife and I saved up a sum of money and I didn't know who I could trust to invest it.  After several interviews with financial advisers, I still didn't feel like I could trust anyone.  That began my journey to educate myself by reading every finance book I could get my hand on and by attending financial seminars.  After getting a good handle on debt, finance, and investments, I decided to start this blog as a resource for others who find it difficult to trust people with their money. I recently started writing this blog about how to get out of debt and start investing to create the future you deserve. I have been in law enforcement for 14 years and I have seen the devastation left behind by people who mismanage their finances.  I started this blog because I want to help as many people I can by educating them on common sense money management. As far as my formal education, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Administration Degree from Northern Arizona University.  I am an adjunct professor at a local community college and I have been a student of finance for many years. This blog is dedicated to those looking to eliminate their debt and to mold a new way of thinking, living, and spending. Education, focused on financial stability and wealth, is the main purpose of this blog. This website is a new journey for me and I know there are areas that I could improve.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any critiques - I would love the feedback so I can be as effective as I possibly can and provide the most relevant information.  I look forward to writing for you and learning with you! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you! -Ryan
