Add extended warranties and maintenance etc... there is not much difference to justify for me to buy used except for what I mentioned before... New car every 3 years is really nice... is usually when you catch the design change also...any dings smaller than a credit card is okay... 6" or shorter on the curb-rash for rims... oil changes included as with other maintenance... we very happy with it.... if your pinching pennies that much... maybe move to NYC and get a monthly subway pass...
