forget the wife and car Jaybo and buy the HD. They're incredible!
I hope you mean new to you and not new from the mfr. Obviously the greatest depreciation on a car is in it's first year. With the economy and jobless rate as it is now, I've seen lots of 1-year old cars for sale. My own favorite car is the 7th generation Honda Accord last made in 2007 and I'm not so much a fan of the newer 8th gen models. If I totaled my 7th gen Accord tomorrow, I'd get about $9k and rather than buy a new Accord, I do believe that I'd be looking for a private firesale on a 2007 model. If you're serious about working a tight budget, used is the way to go and, used car loans being what they are, I can see why you'd prefer to pay cash.Jaybo said:My wife and I are committed to buy a new car with cash. We both have been saving and are not far from having the money to buy one.
