Is buying a used car even the best financially now that used cars are getting close to New prices?

        What's wrong with Corollas?

        If you have the cash on hand negotiate the price as low as you can and bring in your trade-in at the end if you have one. Complete the transaction and agree to pay using a loan. Then a month from then when you get your first mail piece from the dealer, send them a check for the full amount. Saw that in a youtube video

        How much wiggle room is there negotiate? Sticker price to MSRP?

          nothing wrong, just the fact that a new car will depreciate quickly as you own it, and could go through "infant death syndrome" where new products reveal their faults quickly, while the prius has better mpg and already proven itself on the road for years, and has been through its rapid depreciation phase

      This, I recommend used but with electric/ hybrid cars buying used is like someone dumping their bags on you. New batteries are a shit ton.

    >buy overpriced used, get raped by 7%+ apr
    >buy new, get 0% apr but pay sticker msrp
    either way THEY get their shekels goy. if you’re buying a 5 year old or newer then it’s cheaper to buy new. only look for used if it’s 8-10yr old then you save some money

    last time this happened the goys were unloading their large truck/suvs because they couldn’t afford the gas and it’s starting to happen again

    3rd gen Prius owner here.
    REPLACEMENT HYBRID BATTERYS ARE NO LONGER EXPENSIVE.
    For the price of 1 to 3k, you can get a brand new hybrid battery that will last you 5 to 10 years with free at home installation with up to a life time warranty . Look online for green bean or green tech auto or many other websites. Please don't let the past horror stories of depleting batteries ruin your Prius purchased. There is also an app called Dr Prius that with an obd2 scanner can tell you the exact health of the battery.

    Well it's going to take about 8 months for me to get the new car I want. Three months of waiting for allocation and still no order made so it makes sense why used cars are going for close to the price of new cars. That being said why would you buy a car with 30k miles in the non current model for basically the same price just wait

      Pre-2006 Asian cars are the best. You can even fix them yourself mostly, unlike new cars.

    Used cars are more expensive than new ones. That's why many dealers simply immediately "sell" any new units they get from an allotment (that somehow weren't owed to existing orders) to themselves or partner dealerships across the road, and then resell them as Used with a few thousand markup.

    You can still find a good deal on a used car, but they are rarer. So it's more accurate to say that buying a new car isn't as stupid of an idea today as it was 4 years ago, and at least you get a warranty with it.

    Honestly, I would get a new car with a large down payment to lower interest. If you can find a dealer that has already been slapped on the wrist by the manufacturer for price gouging (Ford, Hyundai, Kia) you can get one pretty close to MSRP. The Hyundai Elantra is solid car for the asking price, plus a great manufacturer warranty.

    Nigga, yes. But also nigga, why the fk are you looking at cars from 2013 ?
    Try a car from 2002. A honda civic.
    Lets be honest here, cars are shit, and always a terrible investment. Now, if you want to go from A to B, get yourself the most reliable and cheap vehicle you can if you care so much about money.
    TL;DR, I drive a honda from 2002, and I paid 2000 dollars for it. Low mileage, cold AC, runs great, never had a problem with it.

    INB4 >durrr ugly
    Yeah okay, go buy a "nice" looking car then. Would be a shame if you had money over to put to work in the markets ..... Noone cares what you drive.
