Pengwin, you bring up a lot of good points. I don't put a TON of miles on my car (I think I have put around 70k km on my car over the last 10 years)
Another thing that has to be taken into consideration is that I am a larger man, so I will probably go full sized sedan so that I will be comfortable.
Lawman, that is also a great point. I will probably take my time. I will take several test drives. I will be looking for a new car with tons of incentives, or a used car with a still active warranty, fairly low Kms and several thousand off the ticket price.
Thanks all for the input. I will rep as I can.
Isn't 70k over 10 years considered low usage? That's about 7k a year. I consider myself a average driver and I've done 70k over ~5 years. That's 14k a year and I think average is 10-15k a year. Though I could be way off
