What kind of car do you drive and why?
I am curious to see what kind of vehicles my readers drive and why they drive the vehicles that they do. Purchasing a vehicle is usually a pretty major decision/expense and depending upon what kind vehicle you buy, how you pay for it (cash, credit), and how you maintain your vehicle can really affect your overall financial picture.
People like Ramit advocate buying a new car and he’s trying to teach us how to be rich. I think conventional wisdom/opinion in the personal finance community is to buy a used car (of course we all know that knowing what you probably should do and doing it are entirely different things). Being able to drive that brand new shiny hot rod to work every day can be very tempting or even important to some people. So I’m just curious to see what year, make, model, mileage car everyone drives and why.
Anyway I’ll try to give my answer to this question tomorrow and hopefully provide pictures (if I get home before dark) and an explanation of why I drive the car I do.
