Greg Macke - Your Car Angel explains the cost difference between buying a new or used car. The video Should I Buy a New Car gives you the answer to this question. The "Sweet Spot" is the time in a the life of the car that the repair cost as well as the depreciation are low. In other words it is the best time to buy and own a car.

      Many people find finance rates much more favourable with new cars buying a 2 year old car in most countries is a 10% that buggers up the graph a bit

      Buy a Lexus at just over 100,000 miles and keep it for 10 years. It was probably serviced at the dealer and well taken care of by the owner.

      Let's put this way: General idea is more or less ok, but the assumptions are totally invented. Where are the figures?

      The green repair curve would actually be zero for the first 5 years or 100,000Kms assuming it has a warranty, so that should probably be taken into account.

      This is true plus they give you better warranty and service perks for certified pre own cars than new because they want to sell them more fast than the new ones

      I am in the middle of that sweet spot.. bought a 2 yr old car. Runs beautifully! Now its 4 yr old 126k miles just now it is wanting new pully bearings etc.. this is on top ofthe regular maintenance I already do
      Now do I sell it on and start the cycle again? Or keep it because its really actually reliable and good mpg

      His graph makes it seem like the repair costs for a 10 year car are the same as just buying a brand new one

      But just remember, a two year old car has had someone else's farts in the seats.

      The cost of knowing you are the only owner and take care of your vehicle from new to EOL. That's a sweetspot of its own.

      Lol i have an Audi A4 Avant from 1996 and i spent like 70€ in repair in the last 2 years. That is all subjective and dependent on how you treat your car and on the quality of your car

      I think buying fancy new cars is the single biggest killer of individual and household wealth! Why put all your savings into something that is going to lose half its value in the first 2 years? Lunacy!

      This chart only applies to American cars! Best to scrap them once the warranty is up. Toyotas are amazing though. I’ve never fixed a Toyota. Brakes, tires and oil changes. I put on big miles, owned a few. Amazingly reliable vehicles!
