If you do go with a used/collision'd car, make sure you're buying from someone with a good reputation.
In the end though, money talks and if you can bring down the price of the new one, then go that route.
I'd recommend not getting one that's been in a major accident. Though I know ICBC auctions off cars that have been wrecked, and a surgeon in Prince George bought a Lamborghini to rebuild.
You can get reliable cars that have been not abused. I find don't buy from a younger male because they drive vehicles harder.
Before I moved this summer I sold my 2005 Honda accord coupe with 50,000 KM for $9500.
