Wait, you guys don't lease? LOL. Good job idiots, investing in a depreciating asset is a great way to go about life. I'm sure you all have no problem lighting piles of money on fire to keep warm in the winter either.

1. Cars are not an investment.  They are transportation.
2. If you drive a lot, leases will eff you.
3. If you like to have a new car every 2-3 years, have good credit, and don't exceed the mileage limits, then leasing is the best choice.  If you don't fit those criteria, or you want a car that's actually fun or you want to customize, then don't lease.

I usually only drive the ferrari inbetween trips to the heli pad and home, so you have some valid points.

drove my 2001 Hyundai from mile 9 to 230,000. Really wanted 300k but I knew that was greedy.

Now that I think about it the earliest I've given up on a car is 232,000, back in ought-6 when I traded in my '95 Honda Accord for the Taco.  Previous to that my '78 Mercedes 240D had over 250k on it before the odometer quit working.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to Big Foot, not a "big foot".
Yeah

OMG. I didn't even consider that possibility.

My last car hit 100k the week before some idiot texted and drove into the back of it. Got a nice check and a car with 40 miles on it

in what way is losing your car and having to wait for an insurance check and then dealing with replacing your previous car that was wrecked by some fuckstick rear ending you, "great" ?

When I got rear ended it cause me to be freaked out any time a car was quickly approaching from behind for quite a while. Abe was probably similarly traumatized.

Really a very common issue. Feel for you. But, hey, he got a "free" car out of it, so that is super nice. So #blessed, Abe.

I'm jealous of you people that got a sense of anxiety from being rear-ended.

All I got was a giant hassle from the insurance company, a bulging disc and pinched nerve in my back which are going to require surgery, and an ongoing lawsuit.

I am firmly on Team Drive It Until It Dies.  Every car I've owned made it past 200k and only one of them truly died on me so I have been pretty lucky in that sense.
Doesn't sound like you are very firm on this if you have only done it once.

what are they "tightening"?

muffler gasket.
Yeah, they tried to explain it to me. But talking cars with me is like trying to teach Spanish to a 2 year old. Just beady eyes and staring off into the distance.

I'm pretty sure there are some two year olds that have a better grasp on Spanish than you do on English.  :lol:
Probably cars as well.  Wacky, when you say "kickback" do you actually mean "backfire"?
:curse: To both of you! I mean I'll be driving and putting on the gas and then it feels like big foot just punched the front of my car and then it starts accelerating until big foot hits my car again randomly. Feels dangerous in traffic, because sometimes the kickback is so strong, it shuts off the car.
where and what are you putting the gas on?

i realize you're getting married soon but if you need a car that badly, what's waiting 2 months going to accomplish?

I'd sell the beast on Craigslist for whatever you can get and carpool or something until then.  That death trap might kill you before you even make it to June.

i wouldn't recommend carmax other than i think they will basically accept any type of trade in.  better than just towing the car away as junk.
