Would you mind if the previous owner used the vehicle as casket or coffin carrier. Some are using godcar van to do this and eventually sell it off.

If one can really afford to buy that model, are those factors like pricing difference, frequency of usage, resale value (most godcar owners), really matter?

If can't afford, any reason trying to financially stretch yourself?

Unless it's collector's item which is no longer in production, that's exception.

Price difference is always a factor in buying things if you got a few options. Usage frequency is to match with the purpose of buying the car, you want as daily or occasional use and whether the car you like can fit both or either of those usage. RV depends on how willing you are to take the loss. If the car you like to buy also got good RV then that's the best but RV to me is not the highest priority even though it's important to consider. For some others RV is the main factor so they only like cars with good RV.

Never financially stretch just to buy cars coz cars is a luxury, that's why I buy used cars coz value for money. One very important consideration in choosing cars though is whether you can afford the maintenance and operational cost. If you cannot then you cannot afford it even though initially you have money just to buy. So buy a car that you can afford both in terms of initial purchase price and operational cost, whether it's new or used.
