      Got i to a brand new 2017 Hyundai Elantra w/popular and tech package for 15,000 isd right out the door a year ago. Has heated seats, dual zone climate control, touch screen with apple car play and blind spot monitoring. 12,000 miles later, not an issue and happy as ever while averaging 40-45mpg

      MY Gf has Honda Fit. It's great city car. The 3 cyl engine takes very little gas. Only downside is... The car is quite a barebone.. She has EX-L, Their full option car.. but, the seat adjustment is manual... and the visor does not have lights.... etc.

      If you are going for Honda Fit, I suggest SPORT Trim or EX TRIM. I think FIT Sports has many of options you would want in a car. EX-L is not needed.

      Most cars are under 25K LOL. You're talking about an average, so the really expensive cars boost the numbers. This is basic math everyone.

      Scion is far from one of the least expensive. For 7 grand less, about 10 grand, you can buy a Nisssan Versa. Or a Mitsubishi Mirage, & Chevy Spark for about the same. Too bad Toyota cannot offer a true base mode car under 13k.

      You guys in the US are very lucky, here in Japan a honda accord price starts at $34 k on today's exchange rate, you guys can enjoy having the best cars at really affordable prices, that's one of the reasons I always been planning to move to the US.

      Nah. We do not have the mass transit, nor the bicycle infrastructure and livability you enjoy in Japan in most of the USA. Nor the healthcare. Grass is always greener. Trouble is we "should" be spending far more on the auto, instead we subsidize driving. The gas tax is way too low, cannot cover infrastructural needs and repairing roads. It should be triple the cost of the gas per gallon in just taxes.

      why would you buy a new car when you can get a very slightly older model for significantly less?

    • John Watcher
      John Watcher In reply to James Armstrong

      +Migool I bought a new Tundra for 19k before prices starting going up, which helped resale value. I bought a used Avalanche for 19k slightly before gas prices skyrocketed. Currently have (2) 94 fords. Bronco and F350 diesel. Also kid had a VW Beetle that was costing steady repairs. I later bought her a new Scion IQ for 14k. 40mpg 7 year 100k warranty. Never have to fix anything. I see Ford Mustang V6 cars new in the low 20k range still selling close to that after a few years. Although I would prefer a GT, the bang for buck is probably the V6 as car that likely would hold value good.

      +Jon Watcher what new vehicle did you buy and only lost 1k a year if you dont mind me asking. jeeps depreciate slowly but theyre unreliable. toyota tacomas also depreciate slowly and reliable but theyre a decade old toyota engine so thats expected from such an arcaic car and a used toyota tacoma would be just as reliable. what used vehicle did you buy that lost 4k a year. a german vehicle like a bmw or mini cooper. if your buying used go for something reliable. and efficient. if you lose more money by buying used than buying new than you dont know how to buy a proper used car and youd probably be safer off buying new with a warranty so theres more used cars that have already taken the 5 year depreciation hit.

      I've bought new and only lost 1k/year in value over 3 years. I have seen other vehicles do the same. I have bought slightly used and lost 4k/year with no warranty. I have bought much older vehicles and averaged the price of a car payment in repairs (currently). New is still worth considering.

      +djkenny No, im not referring to the GTI, the Golf R is 40k, a GTI fully equipped is less than a base Golf R. The Golf R has AWD too, the GTI doesn't. And the least expensive VW is the Jetta even comparing base to base models with the Golf. The Jetta is a small car anyway,its a compact sedan. That's why its not expensive.

      djkenny In reply to CMCNestT

      That's the thing, the base Golf is a really nicely equipped car. Last I heard they were less than the Jetta, as it is the hatchback and the Jetta the sedan. I like hatch backs. For 25k you could get into a GTI, if that is what you are referring to?You can for sure get a Jetta or Golf (not GTI) in the 15k range. I have seen Golfs recently as low as 13,900 after discounts.

      +djkenny No, a stock Golf starts at 19k, if you want an entry level Jetta, its around 17k, but I guess you can talk them down to 15.5k, A well equipped Golf is in the mid 25k range. If you want a Golf R, damn thing cost's around 40 grand.
