Buying a new car (first timer) Ok, over the last few years I have been considering buying a new car, but before I do I would like to know of some advice from those that have bought new cars and what your opinions are. Here is my information. 1) No trade 2) 3k down 3) Lease or buy is still up in the air it will be according to what my payments will be. My roommate and I were working the numbers a few months back and the way it worked out...if I bought a new car and sold it 5 years later, and repeated the process, eventually I would be upside down in my credit. I am one to drive the wheels off of a car if I can. (I have put around 70,000 miles on my current car which is now in the 120,000 mile marker) 4) I dont know my inrest at this point. I have 0 credit its not bad...its just non existent lol 5) Its a toss up between the 09 Cube (Nissan) and the 09 Fit (Honda) 6) I know I should also factor in Cost of Gas, Maintence, and Insurance (this will be my first time having full coverage) however I cannot get an insurance quote untill I know what the Vin on the car is with the Fit its not a problem, but the Cube has not been released yet. 7) I have priced a Nissan Versa AROUND the same price of the Cube which will put payments between 220 - 250 a month if I put my credit at 11% APR Is there anything else I am forgetting?
