Q: I am buying a car from chicago but the title is at the bank. how can i drive it back to my city in ohio?
i am going to chicago tomorrow to buy this car. I live in cleveland ohio. The seller doesn’t have the title.the title is at the bank and he can’t get it before 2 or 3 days. i need to drive the car back from chicago to cleveland. How can i do it? can i get a 30 days temporary tag from chicago even though the guy doesn’t have the title? can i drive the car with his plate on it and once he sent me the title i will go ahead and ship his plate back?

A: DO NOT buy that car without first getting a clear, valid merchantable title. The bank won’t release the title until they get their money. To ensure that this happens, you should go to the bank along with the seller and get that clear title in your hands, before you drive the car one inch. Do not fall for “we’ll send you the title in a few days”.

Q: Any rental car company accept age under 21 to rent a car in Chicago?

Or is there any company that don’t have such age restriction?

A: No, car rental companies won’t rent to you. If you’re visiting someone in Chicago that is older, they could rent the car for you, but you wouldn’t be allowed to drive it legally.

Q: where can I park my car for a long time for cheap in Chicago?
am going by car to Chicago cuz i found a cheap air fare from there… but where can I park my car?

A: There are longterm lots near the airports. How long will you be gone? It’s not that expensive really, unless you’re going to be gone for, say, a month. For instance, there are lots near O’Hare that charge as low as $8.50 a day. And there are lots near Midway that are that cheap as well. And they both offer shuttle service to the airport from the lot. They will even wash your car for free if you ask.

Use the lots. It’s better than trying to save a few bucks and leaving you car on some unfamiliar street in some unfamiliar neighborhood for a week or more.

Q: Where can i rent a car in Chicago?
Hey I’m looking into renting a car for like 2 weeks for a road trip, that can fit 5 people comfortably. But I’m not sure where is a good place I can rent one, I don’t want the place to cost to much. Nice and cheap, and reliable. I lived in Chicago, so that is the ideal place where I want the rented place to be.

A: I took a road trip and rented my car through Enterprise Car Rental. Make sure they give you free mileage.

A: A friend of mine in similar situation went to CarMax where she purchased a ‘98 Camry with $20 down and 560 credit score. With a steady income, Carmax will find a way to finance you for a realistic car.

Q: Will I need my car in Chicago?
I am planning to move there soon. Many friends who live there tell me that public trans and taxi’s are plentiful. I could use the extra money from selling my car, if i don’t need it. I will be living in West Chicago.
Okay so what area can i live in and not require a car…because my friends make it seem so easy. one of my friends live in lincoln park and she loves not having a car. Any areas that are convenient enough?

A: I think no matter where you live in the Chicago city limits (where the CTA operates) it is possible to get by with no car. However most Chicagoans who do not have unlimited funds for cabs and renting cars will tell you that it is important to have access to a car. You don’t have to have a brand new car with maxed out insurance, but if you have a car in good working order that you take car of, you’ll definitely be happy to have it.
I have a car but I don’t use it to go to work or anything else that has to do with downtown Chicago. I do however use my car for anything really local or for any type of shopping…

From my place if I wanted to go to the nearest Target I could walk to the corner (wait for 10 minutes) and take the #55 bus to Cicero, (wait another 10 minutes) then take the Cicero bus twenty block south to Target. A trip that may take ten minutes at most in my car could take almost an hour via the bus in both directions, and that doesn’ include lugging your bags around and maybe having to stand on the bus because all of the seats are taken.

I can however walk to the grocery store and a few restaurants and bars as well, and I’ve gotten by just fine when my car was in the shop for repairs. I would say if you’re on the Near Westside you can get by with no car, but the truth is if you get rid of your car, at some point you’re going to have to rent a car or make friends with somebody who owns a car. My friends in the neighborhoods all own a car or are dating somebody with a car. I’m friends with two couples who can afford to live downtown and one couple owns a car, and the other is looking at buying a car.

My advice:
Keep your car for a year and if you don’t need it, get rid of it. But make sure you go through WINTER in Chicago with no car before you get rid of it.
