I tend to agree if you can afford a new or newer vehicle. Other than a house, a car is typically your most expensive purchase. When you buy a used house, you expect there to be some cost for improvements and upkeep; roof, rugs, paint, furnace...you know the drill.
But with a car, I want something I can trust and enjoy. I drove used cars until I could afford to buy new. I put down as much as I could and got a low interest loan. Never took more that 3 years to pay it off. My current car is a 2005 Subaru Outback Legacy that just rolled 100K miles and runs like new. Subaru stopped selling them with the turbo charged engine I have come to love, so no interest in selling it for a few more years. Plus as you can see in my sig, I have a helluva driveway to maneuver in winter, so I love the all wheel drive.
Bottom line, get the best price not the lowest monthly payment and find a car you love to drive. Unless of course you are a poor college student.
