According to ABC news car sales are at an all time high. Have you bought a new car? Planning on buying one?

I wish I could but want to get a house with at least 2 acres and we need all new appliances in the new future.

  • We are looking to buy one. My sister just bought a used one.

  • No. Could not afford payments and insurance.

  • We aren't planning to buy for at least a year. We know what we want, but want to continue to save for a nice down payment.

  • I had to. No choice. And with the miles I put on, it made sense to buy a new car with the 10 year warranty and roadside assistance.

  • I would never buy a new car considering the first year depreciation. I buy cars that are 1-2 yrs old. I did it once in my early 20s for the experience but won't again.

  • Nope. We only buy used, and never from dealers.

  • Nope We have a blazer that was hardly driven, Put $7,000. in to get it to be basically a brand new car. That isn't even close to what we would have paid for a new car. My car works just fine but is nothing to look at, lol it is fine with me it gets me where I need to go and does what I need it to do and I will drive it until it dies or I can not find parts for it. I am not much of a new car buyer anyway. Too much of a loss at the front end for my taste.
