I would suggest buying a very gently used or floor car instead of brand new if you can; to me, buying brand new doesn't really make sense since you lose such an absurd % of the price the second you drive off the lot. if you can get the right used ("certified preowned" w/ warranty) or dealer floor model I'd guess you'll potentially save at least 20%.

buying cars is especially -EV....

back in Australia i bought a wicked purple Ford XR8 with white racing stripes and rated at 320kW's a few years back for around $35k, man it was quick.... loved it.... but sold it for just over $20k less than 18 months later coz i am now living in Canada and didnt need it....

my next car purchase will be something i will plan to have for >10 years....

Not always! I paid 600€ for my first car (mk2 Golf 1.8 '89) and sold it for 800€.

And I bought my 2nd car for 10.5k€ and year and a half later sold it for 9800€ so I didn't lose too much in that either...

I have a friend who bought a car for $50 in HS (from another kid) and used it for over a year. even if he sold it for scrap metal he would've gotten more than he paid for it.

There is no doubt that one of the most interesting aspects of buying a new car, apart from the first outing, is to boast about your latest game. Do not force your family to make unnecessary movements around the block or to repeat it before the neighbors, it is fun to have a new car. Rent a new model civic in Lahore
