Why buy used when you can afford to buy that specific model, and why buy new of cheaper model when it's not your desire?

Human ma, many have their own preferences. If they are prone to not car savvy, not liking to visit workshop chances they will buy new car because less headache, if rosak part can go claim warranty. If car guy can diy maintain car properly, predict when wear and tear item gone, then can go buy used.

I buy used cars coz not enough money to buy new ones that I like. I don't buy new cars coz those that I can afford are not what I like. Simple as that really.

Assuming if the vehicle to be purchased is financed, is the interest rate justifiable?

EDIT : I mean used vehicle due to used vehicle has higher interest rate

It is the other way round for me.

Conti - should buy new to show off buying power

Japanese - can buy used if cannot afford new, still reliable even used.

When you can't afford, why don't get new of cheaper model? Any reason to be so desperate by buying used of the one you can't afford to buy new?

naive guy... Used car >10 year old have to be bought by cash. Buying new is easy, hire purchase so easily approved nowadays. Try to buy a 1999 GTR or Mitsubishi EVO with normal hire purchase? bet you can't get it....

I prefer buying out of heart, but not totally setting brain aside.

Just bought a used car, c segment WITH VALID WARRANTY (brain) instead of buying new B segment car(heart)

With valid warranty seems to be justifiable, but what about the interest rate since buying used the rate is higher?

You may find some used cars are hidden gems, just need to look harder.

I think used car gives more value, even though I can afford new one. After all, it is just a transportation mean to me.

No right or wrong, just personal preference

Buy used car because cant afford to buy new one but able to afford maintenance bill.

Example few of my kolik buy mazda 6 2.5, camry 2.4, accord 2.4.

Newer price is around rm180k. Used one easily get below rm90k. Only fuel is expensive, maintenance is quite cheap.

For me, buy 5 years old c seg much more valuable than b segment. B segment not suitable for long distance drive. Quite tiring due to smaller cc and lighter weight.

If it's for a car that you really like them yeah I think it's worth it. Of course this is if you're picky or very particular about cars, otherwise then you just buy whatever that cost the cheapest for you.

Reason is I don't want to every day look and drive something I don't like and still paying a lot of money for it! If I were to spend on cars then I must buy something that I like otherwise I will keep regretting it later, why on Earth I pay that much for this piece of shit!?
