How you found us: I google myself regularly
New or used....
...not men (we all know I like used). Cars.
I finally decided on a new car (yes, Texi the Ram is going bye-bye, after 7 good years with me). So the decision is: brand new '10 with 0 miles, or an '07 with between 20-30k miles??
-Price difference is about $6k less for the used car.
-Financing on a used car is a bit higher than a new car.
-The used car has some more bells and whistles, but nothing I give a damn about. The '10 has everything I want, and nothing more.
-Warranty is not really an issue. The used will have a good enough warranty remaining.
-I can probably get my #1 color with a new car; would likely get a decent (but not first choice) color with the used.
I'm really almost at the "I don't give a shit" stage, which is why I thought I'd throw it to the peanut gallery to see if there were things I hadn't thought of. It has been so long since I bought a car, and even longer since I bought one I wanted. When I got my truck it was because I needed a truck, and I needed one cheap and fast (again, like my men).
