The only new vehicle i've ever bought was my '78 Chevy pickup that I still drive. I will never buy any government choked up new vehicle, especially a hybrid. When I do look for a vehicle, I don't look at anything except Ford, Chevy, or Dodge.
The most I have ever spent on a family car is $5,000. Any vehicle I buy, I go through completely and change and flush all fluids. Our current car is a one owner, '88 Chevy Caprice that I bought 4 years ago for $2300. It has a carburetor and gets about 20 mpg. I haven't had any problems with it. I don't even have to put a pencil to it to know I'm saving money over a new car.
