re: Why do people buy new vehicles?


Because I drive the shite out a vehicle. For example, my current car is 2 years old, bought new, and has close to 80k on it. I don't want something used with 40k on it already that i'll be trading in a year later.

I got a new model for 0.9% vs a used car at a much higher interest rate. Plus the new one has full warranty. Sometimes it doesn't make any sense to buy used. If my monthly payment is going to only be marginally higher I'll just buy new and keep the car until its paid for.

anything you buy new is worth less as soon as it is out of store....tv's, computers, guns, jewelery, lawnmowers, etc, etc. I do not buy a vehicle as an investment, if i want to invest my money there are plenty of better options, I buy a vehicle because it is what I want....now I also refuse to go upside down on a car, I make sure I put enough money down so that if I had to sell it I would not owe more than it is worth...but at the end of the day it is a personal choice and we would all be better off if we did not worry what other people do with their money

Buy at model year close, get giant discount. I just bought a $42k truck for $29k. I could trade it in for more than that right now. So zero negative equity already, plus a full warranty, as well as knowing that no one has ever abused it and it will be maintained properly. This is also cheaper than I could have bought a 2 year old version for.


Shopping now, what did you get?

Pride of owNership. It's yours, not someone else's sloppy seconds. Sme people cannot drive the same car for more than a few years, but some like to have a growing relationship like its a pet. Some people have no problem driving the same car for ten years. It's a new car...a reward.

You get to get the new redesigned model if you choose

It does if you are using it for a business and can't afford to have the financing counted as a liability on your P&E sheets. For private consumers, though, yeah, leasing is the stupidest thing you could do. Well, one of the stupidest. Rest assured, as soon as you declare something "the stupidest," some idiot will one-up you.

re: Why do people buy new vehicles?




agree.

I own a business and we just buy 'em new.
I don't like the exposure (mileage,damage) w/ a lease, but I can see where larger entities may prefer a lease.

But yeah, a consumer lease is a sucker deal for the most part.

I buy new vehicles through my company for the tax write offs....

I buy my wife a CPO vehicle. No need for her to drive a brand new vehicle.

re: Why do people buy new vehicles?


I've bought all my cars used. All I care about is getting from point A to point B without breaking down. None of my cars have had nice features, but they have all done that. The car I have right now I bought for $4,500 2 years ago. I have put about $200 in for a starter and that is it. Plus the insurance is much lower on a POS than a new vehicle.

re: Why do people buy new vehicles?


we are about to buy a car and waffle on this. I looked at the prices and was stunned that you really have to get some miles on a car so that its worth buying used. The ones that are a year or two old aren't not that much cheaper. Quite disappointing.

I will drive whatever car I purchase until it dies on me on the interstate. Our Passat is 11 years old and about to die, our subaru is 10 years old and I think I can get 5 or 6 more years out of it, which would be cool.
