    I had the opportunity to live next to a Car dealership owner that sold everything from Honda's, Rolls Royces, Chevrolets, Delorean's and the Fiat X 1-9. Very Successful business by the way

    I asked him what is the best value for your dollar and can I ever break even or how best to stretch my dollars on a car. This was his advice which I still follow today.

    1. Buy used, drive it till it breaks down and costs more to fix than replace --- call the junk yard to take the car from the side of the road.

    2. Buy New and then follow rule 1.

    The only difference between 1 and 2 is you will have the car in scenario 2 a lot longer.

    I wonder how many weeks before the average DeLorean broke down.

    Probably a longer interval than the first batches of Hyundais and Kias. The difference is, John DeLorean was brought to justice, and the cranks at these other two companies probably won't (although the head of Daewoo, a similar company, got a very serious sentence).

    +1 on this. I've got a 2011 Santa Fe and never had a problem with it. Hauls lots of stuff too (I can get my amp, guitar, mixer, speakers, stands, etc. in it). Plus you can comfortably carry extra passengers if you want.

    One thing I noticed about Hyundai is that they only have a couple of option packages. It's either included or it's not. If you want extras, you have to bump up to the next model level. But even at the base level you get a bunch of options included.

    Cheers,
    Doug
