Ya I got $100 for my birthday that I could look but that is the max I have and did need to use some of that money on an oil change for the CRV (Haven't gotten it yet as one place said it would cost $130 I think they had said? I forget the cost now but definitely over $120).

Yikes!  You could get the oil and filter FAR cheaper yourself and have one of your brothers change it.

You could also look into what shops would charge for labor to change your oil and filter that you supply.  I can't imagine it being much more than 25 bucks.  Only other question is, what does a 5-quart jug of synthetic oil cost in your country?  Here is around 40 to 45 bucks.  And the filter is between 5 to 15 bucks.  Depending if it's a spin on type or cartridge type.  Yet most shops around here charge roughly 120 bucks to do a synthetic oil change.  That's more than a 100% mark up for synthetic oil.  But a basic oil change is roughly 50 bucks.

Oil here can be anywhere from $40-$50 Cdn and the filter $7 - $20 Cdn if bought at Canadian Tire.

There is no valid point to having a USB3 connection on a drive like that.  It could barely saturate USB2 bandwidth.  But 14Tb worth of storage space is nothing to sneeze at.  And the price is reasonable.

you do know in testing you can only squeeze 35 to 60 mb/sec though usb2 interface and get full hard drive speed at usb3. Most tb or bigger drives get around 100mb/sec or more on usb 3.

I honestly cannot even afford $50 right now ...  :'(

What Is the Transfer Speed of USB 3.0?
The theoretical transfer speed of USB 3.0 (or maximum bandwidth rate) is 5Gbps (gigabits per second). This speed translates into 640 MBps (megabytes per second), which is theoretically ten times faster than USB 2.0.

However, these values are theoretical, and they’re not fixed. There may be differences when measuring the actual data transfer time from a computer to an external hard drive or peripheral and vice versa. Sometimes the figures can be higher or lower than the theoretical value.

For example, the sustained (real-life) transfer speeds for external hard drives are around 85MBps for USB 3.0 and 22MBps for USB 2.0, which indicates about a 4 times improvement.
