    Depreciation is a b***h but someone has to eat that new cost so it can become a cheaper used model 5 years later.

      Sounds biased as hell. Some used car small-timer has a passion for Peugeots and takes in virtually any that's even remotely saveable, patches them up, and sells them for a fair price.
      Got a nice 206 from there and you can absolutely see the love and care that's been put into it.

      I bought a 2013 Scion for 8k, 1/3 of msrp. I spent $3 on a new battery for the remote. Now it's perfect. You're either horribly unlucky or coping

        I have owned 2 cars in my life
        >First car
        1997 jaguar xj6 with 40k miles that I bought for $1400 cash from a guy on Craigslist. I know nothing about cars but I test drove it and it worked, so I bought it. Turns out it had a blown 02 sensor in the engine that prevented it from passing CA emissions tests, so I had to pay extra to get the car passed each year. The transmission blew up while I was driving it from Flagstaff to AZ the week before the covid lockdowns, I daily drive that car for 8 years, even delivered pizza in it

        Probably dumped 10k into it over the years

        >Second car
        2016 ford fiesta I got for next to nothing out of sheer luck. Now the transmission is giving me shit(90k miles). Can't find a decent car that isn't beat all to frick for less than 14k and I don't have that cash sitting around. Everything I see has 100k+ miles

        So I've been lucky, but I think my luck has run out

          Kind of in the same boat, I have a 2014 focus, 64k miles. Transmission issues didn't come to light until 2017ish. I know it'll come knocking once I'm up there too.

            Sure, but the problem is that I don't have a spare car to learn on, or the resources to invest thousands of dollars into one. I have enough for one daily driver, that needs to get my ass too and from work everyday and not rape me at the gas pump since I have a long commute

            As cool as it would be to buy a

            Which I found on FB it could be a total shit box. I have no idea. Guy has all the mods he put listed on it but i know nothing about this stuff. Just that it looks cool and I like the 350z

    Not everyone views buying a car as a financial investment
    But there sure are a lot of moronic people out there
    It's probably fine if you want to build credit, can afford the payments within your means, and intend to just keep the car forever

      Used car markets are dogshit. There is a reason everyone knows used car salesmen are fricking scum

      What would you prefer they do? Serious question. Why do you imagine salesmen control the market rather than react to demand and charge what it will bear? You're free to buy private party and never interact with a dealer.

      Why is (most of) DA so helpless? Real men choose to learn to wrench early in life because it makes us capable in many ways and increases our choices far beyond the helpless. Then we buy opportunistically, for example vehicles we know are broken which drives the price down. We sort them and drive one and as our skills and capabilities grow so do our fleet sizes because we can now easily afford what plebs cannot.

      What peace of mind would you be missing? Do you not trust your own wrenching ability?

      Buy a car that isn’t as susceptible to depreciation.

      All new cars will lose about 10% of their value the very second you leave the lot. That's just fact. But by all means, keep buying new so the cheap used cars keep flowing

      You can either buy your economic shit box and save money, so that when life inevitably decides to frick you over, you have some resources to tap into

      OR

      You spend everything/more than you can afford, enjoy life until it comes knocking and get completely obliterated by the stroke of date because you have no resources

      Pro tip, rich people still choose the first option but their definition of economic shit box is different than yours
