I'm at a stage in life where it seems everyone is driving a new vehicle. Older cars have character. I just find new vehicles extremely boring. They're all the same. Everyone has a black or silver crossover with AWD and LED headlights. I personally drive a 15 year old 4x4 and a 12 year old economy car and love them both. Sure they require repairs sometimes, but I (for the most part) enjoy doing the maintenance. If something is too much for me or I don't have the time and it needs to get fixed, I have a garage that I can trust that does great service for a reasonable price. I've yet to experience a repair that would cost more than a replacement vehicle of the same size/type, per month. New cars just seem like huge liabilities. I had a brand new car once and I couldn't even sleep without worrying about someone denting it or where I parked, etc. Two years into ownership it was hit while parked (at a dealership while in for warranty work of all places). What ended up happening was the dealer tech who was driving it lost control and slid into a parking pole. It was snowing and I still had the Pirelli PZeros on it at the time. I'm sure the tech didn't think an econobox would have the same tires as the vette on the showroom floor. Also, the dealer never owned up to it and never fixed it right, btw. "We'll fix it in-house and it won't show up on a CarFax." Wrong. Collision is on the CarFax, because they filed a police report and claimed it through their insurance. I also had to do this because they didn't repair it all the way. Thanks guys. The new car brigade just seems like a giant circus to me, at least for a daily driver. You essentially give away a bunch of money to be at the mercy of the dealership. You pay more to insure it and drive it because that's what everyone else is doing and "old cars aren't reliable." I see more problems and blown engines with new cars (and trucks, like my friend's 2015 F-150 that went through three engines) than old ones. Usually rust kills old cars before anything else does. Even a lazy owner who is cheap and doesn't maintain their car can get by for years with clunking suspensions, check engine lights ,etc. Anyone else like their old rides?
