I don't know about you guys, but I would rather have people pay me interest than have to pay interest to other people, especially on a depreciating asset. Paying interest on a car is sort of like paying interest on food. Well, duh....

I do whatever is financially better. For example, if they'll give me a 1.99% loan, I would keep my cash in my money market before I would pay cash for a car.
