So, are there any things that you refuse to buy second hand? Why?

False teeth, dental floss, braces, tissues. . .

Seriously, though, for me the added expense of a new car vs. used right now is worth it. I've never taken the time to develop solid mechanic skills, so I'd be somewhat paranoid to drive the car for fear it would fall apart. Yes, I know I get killed due to depreciation, but I've made it a point to drive cars until they give up the octane ghost, so I'm more interested in longevity than depreciation.

Other than that, and the examples you listed, can't think of too much I'd flat-out refuse to buy.
