June 18, 2011Used, because a vehicle devalues 50% in the first 2-3 years; I hate flushing money down the toilet. Buy a 2-3 year old vehicle, get something still in great condition, and save a ton of money!
June 18, 2011used! its the only way to do it. got a great deal on it.i could not afford it new.
June 18, 2011New, I was driving a 2 wheel drive on unplowed winter mountain roads at night for work and after being run off the road one night I decided it was time for a 4X4 instead of having to chain up. Then I won $10,000.00 off and getting a good deal on my other truck I decided to go for it.
June 19, 2011My daughter totalled my 1986 El Camino, driving the wife`s 1976 Corvette wasn`t an affordable option, so I bought my 2004 Canyon new in September of 2005. They tried to get me to settle for a Silver Birch one, I wasn`t having any of that so I told them find me a Dark Cherry Red 2004 equipped the way I want or else order me a 2005. If that was too much trouble, I`d go to the next dealer down the road until I found a dealer who really wanted to sell a truck.
June 19, 2011I`ve had a used `98 and a used `01 just to have a chevy to drive as first vehicles. I`m planning on buying a 2011 at the end of this month. I`d get a used `09 or `10 but most are actually more expensive than a brand new 2011!!
June 20, 2011I buy used becuase like said in the first post a vehicle depreciates the most in the first two years...ex..my Sonata i bought from carmax 2 years old with 28k miles for 13,500...2 years earlier it was 22k car...the 28k miles are negligible when considering I saved about 11k with taxes and what not...my truck was also used bough outright for 2k less then the BB value..cant go wrong
June 21, 2011Bought mine new in 1999. It still runs great and looks good. By keeping it this long, I am getting my monies worth out of it. Also by buying new, I know it has been taken care of properly and not buying some else`s problem.
June 21, 2011I always wanted a brand spankin` new truck, so I got one just the way I wanted it. No more, no less.
I plan on keeping it till it wont go no more.
June 21, 2011Similar to the above post. I always bought new so I got what I wanted, also I know I`m not getting someone else`s hidden issues. : Not everyone`s honest.
June 22, 2011i`ve alwyas bought used, i hate owing money, and don`t have the kind of money needed for new, so i always just save up and buy a rig. whether that means trading my current one, or selling it before or after, i always find a way to get exactly what i want. but i will admit to settling on ocassion. i just don`t think i could get as good of a deal as i can get when i buy used. afterall, i traded a $2,000 car for a $6000 suburban, straight across, and got them to pay for title transfer and fees. i don`t think i could come close to that deal when buying new. but gimme another 10n years and i will consider a new rig, rather than just a new to me.
