Well there's your first problem! Buying a NEW car is crazy! Buy a used car for $17,000 and your payments will be around $270 with your criteria...
It's crazy for some. Not for others. Sure a 2 year old car can be very nice and a lot cheaper. But it's most likely a former lease or a wreck. I don't want to deal with either. I can afford to buy a brand new car so that is what I do. I never have to worry about why a previous owner decided to get rid of it. I like that the seat only contains my farts and nobody else's.
Just think, without people like me who prefer to buy new cars instead of used you wouldn't have any used cars to buy.
You aren't alone. I only buy new. I don't want someone else's problems. If I have an issue, it goes back to the dealer instantly.
