Remember the first used car you bought?
$500 and a case of beer were enough to get my hands on an old Honda Civic a friend in Springfield, Missouri was selling.
Was it a beauty? No.
Was the price right? You bet.
Most of people bought their first used car by scraping together some cash and buying whatever they could afford.
While that's still the case for millions of people, a new study says millions others cannot afford to buy the average used vehicle in their city.
