E. When you look at the price difference between a new car (especially with special OEM financing or rebates) vs. a used car
over the 10 year life of the car, we are talking pennies per day. A small price to pay for the added benefits.

making up some (reasonable) numbers --
$30000 new,
20% Depreciation is $6000, which is
a buck-sixty/day over 10yrs.

not what i'd call 'pennies'
(is what i'd call a 'reasonable' price for the added benefits )
