Should I buy a $50,000 car if I already have $95,000 in student loan debt?

"I recently graduated from college and want to get a car.

The vehicle costs $50,000, and I have $7,000 for a down payment. However, I have $95,000 in student loan debt.

Should I finance this car?"

“With so much student loan debt, you might not even get approved for a car loan. If you do get approved, can you afford $43,000 in additional debt?
To avoid getting further into debt straight out of college, your best move is buying a used car with the $7,000 cash.
In doing so, not only can you get a reliable set of wheels but also you will have no car loan debt.”
