What kind of car do you drive?

2007 Avalanche. Business in the front...party in the back. Purchased it because it got a brand new motor at 55K miles when the Chevy place neglected to refill the fluids before trying to start it up. :) So....I have a paid off 2007 with about 65K miles on it. I am a RE agent but I will not get swept up in the luxury car stuff. I bring value with my brain...not my car. 

Dang... now I feel bad about getting a USED car last year even at a good price. You folks are saving some  $$$$ with these depreciating vehicles. 

But my Mazda 6 is a solid car that gets me almost 30 MPG in the city, I'll handle the $290 / Mo payment. 

and yes, some ppl are idiots with their high $$$ leases and 2019 fully-loaded cars paying $600+ a month. You should be swimming in money before paying that money, but America is full ppl that consume 1st,  consume 2nd, and invest/save 3rd. :)

Never understood why people want such flashy new vehicles. Autos are just money pits. New car loans and prices are insane. I always buy them with cash used.

I got a old beater 4x4 8' f150

A superduty with utility body 

And a gas saving car

2017 superduty. I pull a trailer almost daily, as well as haul up to 5k lbs in the bed so I have always run diesel trucks. Definitely not the most economical when unloaded but when I'm working, It's efficient. Bought when I was a contractor so the tax benefits were huge. I would not buy this truck without the ability to write off depreciation. That said, loan was cheap, and even with $0 down I was only upside down for 6 months. Didn't pay sticker... Wife's car is a 2012 accord sedan. So boring but probably the best financial decision I ever made, besides my house. Battery, brakes, tires, and wipers in 7 years. Less than $1k(I enjoy turning wrenches). I am $9k out of pocket on the truck over the last 33 months because of the tax benefits when I bought the truck and have $13k in equity on it.
