    I would not see the point of buying a brand new car. These days, not that many cars are built to last so paying for something that you'll likely still be paying for long after you got rid of the car itself is not appealing in the slightest.

    this commercial is just so wrong, in the true sense of wrong!

    some 9 yr old kid is telling another 9 yr old kid his parents need to buy this really loaded suv with dvd players and headphones for kids in the back seat etc...in order to make the other kids parent's 'cool'....my goodness, what a terrible commercial....

    Cars are so out of control cost-wise. We went looking one day and a Kia has a $14,000 sticker. I know they get away with that price from time to time but they offer roll up windows, manual door locks, mirrors and no air conditioning. That stuff was always standard in every one of my new cars.

    I would buy a used car first. These car companies had their hands out just a few months ago.

    What the hell?

    I agree.

    I bought my first and last new car in 1992.

    I paid $9,000 for a new plain jane Chevy Cavalier...by the time I paid it off, I'd paid $12,000 over four years and sold it for $2,400.

    Plus I has to carry full coverage insurance.

    Total ripoff all the way around.
