    Bought a new 2014 Ford Mustang last week. V6, with 305 hp, auto, silver metallic gray. I had a 2005 GT Mustang and always regretted getting rid of it. This V6 has more hp than my 2005 GT did. End of model year, Ford X Plan discount and $3K rebate for paying cash resulted in an out the door price of $25K. Love the rear wheel drive and the exhaust sound a Mustang makes when accelerating.

      Usually car buying is easy for me thanks to having a dad who is retired GM employee, brother currently working for them and uncles who retired from Ford. I was going through this process last year and after having a car of some sort for 7 years I wanted to get back in a 4x4.

      i was between F-150 (including the Raptor just wasn't willing to pay $50k for a pickup), the Silverado and. 4 door Wrangler. After a few weeks of contemplating I bought the Wrangler and love it. When not buying GM or Ford products I use online sites for research, pricing and purchasing. I will get offers from several dealers and then email them all back with what the best offer received is and see if any of them will beat it

        I'm all over the place.

        Was pondering leasing a van, down payment would be offset by my beater trade in but not a fan of another 3k in fees and taxes to rent a car for 3 years.

        So back scouring the used options.

              I was being serious...We got ours for a reason, that reason is no longer valid due to his condition.

                  Great idea for a thread, we just traded in the Titan for a new Altima and Sentra lol, I got the stuck with the sentra haha. I think guys in the know can save a ton of heartache by sharing that info here, God know I could have used it.

                      I'm driving a 2001 Honda Accord right now and getting the itch for a new car. Thinking that I'm going to have to go all-wheel-drive with my next vehicle because I now live in a place where we have to drive up a significant hill to get there, and because I have a job where I still have to be there even when the snow is really bad. The new Subaru Legacy is intriguing to me, but if that one doesn't work, I might have to move up to the AWD luxury category (BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Infiniti Q50, etc). Before anyone says it: wife doesn't want an SUV or crossover type vehicle.

                          Would gladly give input to potential buyers, not one to toot my own horn but I do extremely well when purchasing new cars, yet to be upside down when trading in. I now deal strictly through email(little more difficult if trading though) if I know what I want, easy to get straight to the point and avoid the dealers sales pitches.

                            I have always liked the Legacy. I bought a 328 late last year, and 17k miles in and I love everything about it.

                              Last year I bought a 2013 Ram pickup for 22k after rebates. After a job change and driving much more miles a day, I traded it in in June for a 2014 Chevy Cruze Turbo Diesel. Cool thing is I got more for my trade in then I even paid for the truck lol. Payment went down and I'm getting 43mpg compared to 18mpg :).
