    With so many data breaches happening on a regular basis it only seems like good sense. Every time one uses a credit/debit card you are opening yourself up to another exposure of identity theft/data mining/breach.

    It is probably based on state law. I am not sure that I could use a credit card here to buy a car. Last time I had to get a special type of check endorsed by my bank. (I put half down and financed the rest.)

    Yes. Cash is good.

    Governments hate it too. Which makes me like it more.

    I put $8500 on mine to buy a Galant a few years back.
