Ditto. I may buy a "new" car with close to zero miles on it, when the next model comes out. IE, buying a new 2003 now. It's nice seeing 25% knocked off the price, when the "newer" model is the EXACT same car, just ending in '04 rather than '03.

And this statement is true in more often than not. How many times does a car manufacturer redesign a car? The Sunfire used the exact same body design from 95-02, and from 97 to 98, there were no changes made to the car, not even a cupholder repositioned.

There are some years, though, where a car sees a substantial upgrade. In 2001, Grand Ams got a much improved sound system, and in 2002, the 4-cyl versions got an engine change.

Driving the Suzuki off the lot was painful, but somehow knowing that my ass is the only one that's sat in the driver's seat makes up for it
And after a lifetime of driving junkers, it was nice to cancel that Triple A membership instead of the other way around!

Hey, my cubicle r00x0rz mah B0x00rz!

Don't knock the USC, or Utility Sports Car.

95' Mitsubishi Eclipse, with the rear seat folded down, can evidently haul at least 27 x 8' treaded landscaping timbers.

The guys at Home Depot love to load mah car.

Note of interest. Theres a car dealer in my area that is currently being sued and criminally investigated for changing boat ID numbers to sell 1998 model boats as 1999 boats. Are you SURE its a 2000?

Yes, and here's why

http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/u...fm/id/2397.htm



The rear spoiler gets distorted in the hot sun. Also, water gets inside requiring drain holes to be drilled. (1999)
If it were a 99, as hot as it was here, my spoiler would look like Raelven sat on it! MOO!

My first car was a ...I shit you not...

A Brown '76 Mustang II...what a POS...but, I was damned glad to have it lol. Cost me $400.00 in 1986. Not too bad, I thought. God, but it was UGLY.
