Santa Came Early This Year....

OK, so I did something I never, ever thought I would do this past weekend.......

I bought a brand new car. My wife's former vehicle (a '95 Honda Accord w/222,000+ miles) was due for retirement. She actually fought having to get another car for several years b/c she loved hers so much. However, after a six month search (yes, it actually took that long) we finally found THE CAR. It is a Mazda CX-9.

Like I said before, I never thought I would ever buy a new car. I'm a huge advocate of buying used cars w/low miles 'cause I think you get a better deal. But, this car and the deal that came with it made it too good to pass up. Plus it didn't hurt that the car handles like a sports car.

So, do you buy new or used? Why?
