Well, it seems I'm not using the FAFSA money to get a new car after all. My family and I have decided to use the money to fix our old car and use the rest to buy books and pay back the debt we owe to my uncle. I felt kind of sad that I wouldn't get a new car (yet), but we are going to buy one next year for sure. I'm going to be given my dad's old '95 Mercury Sable LS. Yes, that is the luxury trim (at least).
