I drive a lot
for work and so I’ll consistently get it back in mileage expense reimbursement.
I’ve always been one who prefers to offset future issues when buying cars, as I like to consider what could go wrong outside of my control.
I need a car for work; and who knows what life will bring. In a purchase, I can sell it without concern for mileage, wear and tear, etc. I expect this car to last me at least 8 Years, my loan is for 5.
Protecting my livelihood is way more important than anything else... one can’t honestly save money he doesn’t earn.
Not mentioned is the $50 in personalized 60s California Vintage Plates (Black on Black) If you see “ISNOICE” on the 101, ‘tis me.
