Am I really going to have to spend close to 40k for a new car?>Get baited by a price reduction and low APR>oh this car has PPF that only goes up halfway up the hood and looks like shit, and has carbon tinted windows>that’ll be another 2k pls>Oh, it comes with the cargo net and alternative color matching locking lug locks>another 600 pls
>>26451252There are perfectly good new cars available in the low 20k range still. You could get a Corolla or a Mazda3 for no more than 25k.
>>26451307I don't see the point of a new mazda 3 if it doesn't have AWD. Their previous gen was better in almost every way.
>>26451252Your purchasing power dwindles every year. Buy a new car if you're going to autistically care for it for 10+ years. If not buy used
>>26451307AWDs start at like 28, Rav4s, CX5s, entry pickups
>>26451353waddya need 4 wheel drive for on a smol car?
>>26451468I live in the springs
>>26451252yup, I started looking at Corolla's and Elantras "Oh, $5K markups" so they are now $28K cars, and I'm too tall for a compacty sedan. Then looked at the new Pruis or higher-end trims of Elantra/Accord because I have a 2005 Limited trim, leather and ventilated seats are still a fucking premium 17yrs later for some reason, and now I've worked myself all the way up to a Sonata Hybrid Limited because if I'm already spending 32K, might as well spend 37K and get everything I want (short of horsepower and usbc)
