No, not yet. One day, maybe. I hate how it depreciates so soon after driving off the lot, plus its like some karma thing. New will probably attract someone to let their shopping car roll and ding the door. My neighbor had bought a new car, got in an accident like the week after buying it, and she couldn't get a full trade-in value with insurance to cover a new, new one. So she was stuck paying part of the smashed and gone car PLUS another brand new one - although the dealer sympathized and helped discount it more. My '99 is going to have its 300,000 mile birthday soon. I don't know what to do. Probably a what do they call it "pre-owned" one! They don't make mine anymore so hmmm.

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far Iíve finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already. - Dave Barry

Yes I did and it died in a car crash this past February... with 3 payments left on it! I'm still upset. I replaced it with a 2013.. but it was my first car that was mine and mine alone! I miss my accent!

We bought our first new car 2 years ago and I don't know how I actually feel about it yet! I mean the interest rate is great and all so the payments aren't bad but the value dropped as soon as we drove it off the lot. We keep it really clean and it still has the new car smell which I love. I also love that we didn't inherit a bunch of problems that someone else caused and we got the full warranty on it. I guess all in all I like it more than I don't like it!

Nope,

First car was used when I was 16 (all I could afford) and it lasted for a while then I bought another used car that I have now. I suspect I won't be able to purchase a car until after I finish school and get settled into my career. I really want a black Charger, Impala or a lime VW Bug.

Can't wait to get one of them brand new!! Not looking forward to the payments though but I digress you have to give to get emoticon

I want to have fun in life and I don't want to hold myself back from that so I'm making a change for the better ^-^

Nope, never purchased a brand spanking new car by myself. My husband and I have always gotten used cars with a loan. The latest is a 2006 Ford Mustang, we call her Miss Bumble Bee.

Yes, several. The first was a 1986 Ford Taurus, then, after a couple more used cars as the family's "second car", we bought a 1999 Honda Odyssey. However, since then, it's just me, so I've been leasing - first a 2008 Chevy Cobalt and now a 2013 Chevy Cruze. So does leasing count as having "purchased" a brand new car? It does for me. Like Dusty, it makes it special that it's done all on my own, no husband, no co-signer, just me.

Yes, a 1995 Subaru Legacy LXi. It was when I was dating my 2nd husband and it was our first major purchase together. It was wonderful!! I drove that car until I totaled it in 2012.

Although not purchased new, my 61 Bug is all I've ever driven that was MY very, very own and not purchased with monies from husband or boyfriends.

I'd love a new car but would never get rid of my bug.

Of course I emoticon every day it keeps running without anything major happening. (Like needing a new engine or it getting smashed up, knock on wood:) After all it's 53 years old!

I wish! So far I've had mostly junkers. My minivan is the newest vehicle I've ever owned and it's a 2002! I got it with 63,000 miles on it though.
