    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Never is the correct answer from my experience. New cars have warranties, used cars don't. I don't get your depreciation comment. They depreciate no matter when you buy them.

    Shortly after the little old lady who owned the car first has died.

    You take the biggest monetary hit in depreciation in the first couple of years of ownership. The % decline also slows down as the car ages

    Which is only relevant if you care at all about resale value. Otherwise... so what?

    How about money even if you keep the car untill it dies

    Buy a 1 year old car, and you can save 20% of the initial purchase price. That 20% can pay for a lot of repairs, and the car is still under warranty for a few years still

    Buying a new car is a poor economic decision, but most people dont buy a new car based on economic decisions anyway

    New cars are the worst decision to your pocketbook. Never EVER buy a new car. EVER! That is unless you have tons of money to set on fire.
    And BTW the best time to buy a used car is in November and December. No one got the correct answer. Business is soooooooo dead during that time, that sellers are starving and willing to make huge deals! The worst time to buy a used car is tax season. Some used cars are literally twice as expensive at that time because of supply and demand.

    Not really since your insurance rate also depends on the cars value.

    Re: When is the Best time to Buy a USED Vehicle?

    IN answer to the question, whenever you have the money to pay cash.

    If you are willing to walk away from a deal with cash in hand, you will get the best deal.

    If you are buying at a dealership, the last 3 days of the month are the best.

    The salesman has to make his monthly quota so they will be more willing to deal.
