jdance and i have the same car but mines 2014 and white
Mine is also a 2014
Did you have transmission issues
i bought it right after they replaced the transmission lmao
I've had 3 transmission replacements for free
Lol I had Japanese cars for last 15 years with having to replace zero transmissions
Haven't needed one since my last. I think they actually fixed it correctly, it was 30k miles ago now
Yeah this car is a pos
If I were to get a new used car it would be japan
Cars don't hold value. Property (generally) makes money. I don't like owing money in general. I haven't carried debt ever really because it increases risk and complexity in my finances.
I'm sure in my financial history it could have been better to min/max by having some debt at some point but I've been fortunate enough to not have to worry about that. It's worth the peace of mind in my books to not have anything hanging over me.
Thankfully, I've always been in a position to buy good used cars in cash but I'd imagine there are good reasons to finance if that's not the case. Still might cost more in the long run but there are probably reasons.
Wish I could justify a tesla but my wife has a hybrid she likes and I work from home ahhhh
2009 ford crown vic, former police cruiser, still has a bit of the reflective tape on the siding.
not that i WANTED a car like this, but my neighbour offered it to me for $1000 and also did shit like pay for a garage to inspect it and give me a set of winter tires, for free. how could I refuse.
also people literally never tailgate me at night on the highway, ever. it's wonderful
10/10 would recommend.
Some people argue you should never own a car at all and just lease them instead due to depreciation in value.
Leasing is only better if you drive close to 12-15k per year.
yeah that makes sense
Had a model S some years ago, sold it when I moved inner city
and yeah cars are a waste unless you live in the middle of nowhere or really like driving
Also have my shitty BMW and a Honda Civic.
2005 Honda Accord
