When it comes to buying a car have you ever bought a new car? Can you afford a new car? I can definitely not afford a new car so I just buy a used car when I need a car. Here you can get a decent used car between $2,000 and $4,000.
The car of my dreams will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars if I wait to buy it new. I wouldn't mind buying an ex-Japan or something. Provided it is at least not older than 10yrs with a decent mileage of course. Am a frugal person, i don't just buy what is on the shelf, i dig deep!
I guess it is more of a personal opinion, but if you can get a well maintained second hand car with not so much mileage on it, it is a good bet compared to a new car that can be overly and unnecessarily expensive.
A friend bought a used Jeep 2008 for $3500 and Tom cruise bought the same car but a brand new one for $300,000.
Tom cruise sold his while my friend is still using is. My point here is, how can Tom just waste that kind of cash on that kind of car.
I have never owned a new car and honestly do not see the point in buying a new one. Soon as you drive a new car off the lot, it drops in value by 5 grand or more. I think it is fine to lease a new car but when it comes to buying, just find someone who took care of their car, like a single-owner car and you will have like no issues. My car is a 2014 Sonata and the previous owner bought it new. The car runs perfectly and will likely last a good 10+ years with regular maintenance and care.
