    It's one thing to be thrifty, another to be cheap. If nobody ever bought new cars, there would quickly stop being used ones.

    No one buys a new car upon that logic. If they DID we should all go over and smack them up side their head. There are a few good reasons to buy a new car but those arent enough for ME to ever get one. Bottom line is stay away from Dodge and Chrysler.

    After thought I decided the best time to buy a used car is when you need a car. There is never a good time to buy a new car.

    Buy a car when the dealers are slow and need to move the merchandise. Don't buy when people are heading off to college or when they get their tax refunds and creating a demand. So I would say the middle of the summer or winter.

    Best time to buy a used vehicle? I would say when hell freezes over... and not the first time but when it has frozen over at least three times previously.

    The best time is 2 days after you visited the dealer. Always...ALWAYS....ALWAYS...walk away from the deal. The dealer will call you the next and make his rock bottom offer.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    So everything is about being thrifty with you, eh? Somehow I doubt that. Are you using a dial-up internet connection?

    The only thing I want to know about vehicles is how to operate them. I can pay others to handle the maintenance and if there is a serious problem, I'll just get another one.

    Sucker, eh? You do realize that business related travel is a business expense so you are helping pay for my new vehicles. Maybe the economics of my method is not so bad. Thx.

    Well fellas I never had a issue with a used car, not a major one anyway. The problem with buying a new one is you loose a thousand or more dollars the instant you drive it off the car dealers lot. Both new and used has it perks depending on who you are and what knowledge about cars you have. I prefer used because these damn things are a deficit the minute you purchase one. Vanity, prestige means little to me these days it's all about practicality.

    Oh BTW...September thru February I think is the best time.

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

    I remembered this thread from a while ago, just got back with the wife, having just bought a brand new car (13 miles on the odometer), in a couple of years you'll be able to fight over it at the used car lot. Some of us have to keep buying new, otherwise there will be no used for the rest.

    Cheers.
