Why do people buy new vehicles?

They depreciate so quickly. Even if you have all the money in the world like every OT baller, I don't understand the logic behind it. As soon as you drive off the lot it's worth less. Discuss if you will.

I never understood it either. Pre-owned, certified Lexus dealers FTW.

The vehicle I was purchasing wasn't much cheaper used than new. Plus, I got a 100K warranty with the new vehicle.

Definitely one of the dumbest big purchases you can do.

Better rebates
0% interest
Better warranty


I looked at used trucks with very low mileage and it wasn't worth buying used.

I was on the side of never buying new until I started looking for another vehicle this pass year.

Diesels have a great resale value, so I really don't feel bad about it.

Most of the time, yes. Certain situations and/or brands you look at, used isn't always the smarter option.

The value of the car is in the miles you get out of it. If you buy new and keep the car for a good bit then its a good idea. If you only keep your car a few years its retarded.

2 things I hate. Purchasing something from someone else used as you have no idea how other people take care of their own items. Buying new alleviates that.

Not having a warranty, buyint new alleviates that.

Peace of mind is PRICELESSS

The one car I bought used, 5 series BMW, I got fricked on. Nothing went right with that car.. The happiest day was when I traded it for a truck.

Well said, exactly my idea with my new car purchase.

Reason I purchased a diesel, great MPG and should last 15yrs as a work car.

I agree, all depends what you can find, but generally a dumb idea.

I buy new, but I keep it 15 years. If I were turning over cars every 5 years, I would not buy new.

Warranties protect the manufacturer, not the consumer.
