  • How much will you lose the minute you drive it off the lot? The way the stock market is going if I were close to retirement? I would be VERY careful in what I purchased these days.


    lazs

    These are strange times, it depends on the vehicle. I got my F150 about 20 months ago on the A-Z plan (wife's uncle retired from Ford). Paid $50k out the door which was a very good deal at the time. I've put 42,000 miles on it and it's worth $55K on a trade in and 57-58k outright sale. Pretty fucking stupid if you ask me but I'll take it.


    Now the wife's POS Cherokee L was $52k in January (still going through the lawsuit on that one). Trade in value with 10,000 miles on it is $42k.

  • That's correct.


    Keep the vehicle for ever. Divide the cost by number of years service rendered.


    You people are profligate.

    What the Fuck was that?

  • My personal opinion is that new cars and trucks are crap today compared to 7-20 years ago. They are getting worse every year it seems. I bought a new car in 2008 and still have it. It has about 150k miles on it but looks great inside and out and drives better than a new car in 2022.


    For me, I would like to buy a new truck, but I like and prefer one a bit older even if they are the same price. I just don't like computer everything. I like dials, switches and knobs as opposed to touch screens. I like having a key with a key hole in the door. I don't want a satelite radio, nor do I want to be tracked by satelite. I want beefy metal exterior that I can't dent with my finger.

  • 1988 Ranger, 20 years.


    1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse, 22 years


    2004 Tacoma, 18 years and still going.


    2004 Tundra, daily driver


    2010 Nissan Altima, daily driver once I get the A/C fixed or it cools down.


    I think a lot of it has to do with the upkeep and periodic maintenance. For one thing, don’t EVER go more than 5k miles between oil changes on a gas burner. 10k is the OEM minimum requirement but that only if you want to replace the engine every 180K.

    1984 VW GTI


    1947 ACF Brill IC 41 with a Turbo DD 671

    I have a set of R1 brakes and rotors for a 2014 Tundra Limited and a Console Safe I never used for the same truck.

  • I can walk to the Mini dealer from my house. They are fun little cars. When the 2024 models come out next year I may look at one. Current range of 145 isn’t bad but I’m betting that will improve.
