i'd agree with everything except the buy new part. Maybee if your talking a 10k squash box and your buying it for 8k used fine ,for 2k that makes sense but for more exspensive cars no way. I weaseld a 2yold Mitsubishi montero from a dealer way below book. The first owner took a 15k hit in 2 years!!! But if you track out for another 3 it should still be worth around 10-12k so I'm out 3-5 versus 15 (assuming I sell it). idon't anticipate any real problems we already drove 1 of these over 180,000 no problem.
