I agree with one blogger here, I typically steer clear of purchasing a brand new vehicle AND vehicles that do not hold their value well. I will let some other wealthy, or stupid, person take that initial hit. My last purchase was a $40k fully loaded Highlander, I bought it with 36k miles on it and saved $12k. I instantly owned a vehicle that's value was more than what I paid for it, that will continue to have plenty of equity in it, is a much better vehicle than any of the $30k new vehicles on this list and has way more options. 40k miles later and not a cent spent on anything but tires, oil changes and fuel.
I purchase for the company that I work for and frequently purchase 1-2 yr old Suburbans with 30k miles on them for half of their original price. Their quality isn't the greatest but at that price you can afford to fix a few things every so often.
Lesson......Don't pay $30k for a new car, all you are doing is paying $10-15k extra to inhale that toxic new car smell. Wait a year and pick it up for much much less.
blame that on greed if henry ford could build a car by hand with everything in it steel, for a total cost of 300.00
then today with our advanced technology we should be producing cars @ about 45.00 per car! but instead we have to pay joe blowhard 17.50 per hr to sit on his fat **** and push buttons and god help us all if he has to get off his stool to get anything thats why they pay jane blowharder 22.50 per hour to drive that forktruck and all because the union says so but I love america
