      My wife used to work in the offfice as book keeper accountant for 23 years and she bought Toyota because all the mechanics that would come in told her the Toyota or Honda is what she shoud buy. So she bought the Toyota.she passed away in 2015 and I still have her 2011 Camry and it is awsome. I sold my 2007 Ford F 150 wbich is a good truck to my son and I am glad I found your channel Scotty. Thanks

        cars are the worst investment..unlike property..once u buy once immediately its price fluctuates...but my concept i buy a brand new car that can last me 8-10 years....with little mechanical hassle and less worry long term issues.....and off course toyota or honda are the only brands i buy....

          Mostly correct, but 0% is real, although usually in lieu of rebate. Then its simple math, which is the better for you. Which gives the lowest payment ? His advice makes more sense for the rich, who can pay cash, and also replace a $5000 motor with pocket change. If your transmission goes out at 61,000 miles, and you still owe 3 years in payments, you will thank god you have a warranty. These topics can't be explained in a 9 minute video, there are to many variables and lifestyles.

                              He missed a big one. *NEVER TRADE IN A CAR.* It's fine to sell a used car, even to a dealer. But it needs to be a separate transaction so that they cannot leverage one aspect of the deal against another.

                                                  Some of the best piece of advice ever. Treat your car-purchase as you would, say, the purchase of a washing machine or a fridge.

                                                  Is it practical? Is it good value for money? Is it reliable? Is it economical? Should all come before "Does it excite me?" or "Will it make me look good?".

I bought a Cavalier in 1985, held onto it for nearly 35 years, meaning you've actually spent more buying multiple cars over that same span than I have. Just buy it new, and hang onto the thing for decades.

It seems like everything today is disposable.
