down payment in hand

42 posts in this topic

Let's say you're heading out to the dealership today to buy a new vehicle. This is not a "money is no object" vehicle, but something you can realistically afford to pay for. You've saved up for your downpayment. What vehicle, right now today, makes you want to sign the dotted line?

Now that we have a Cobalt; the HHR. It give alot of vehicle for the money, plus the payments would stay low like the Cobalt.

Assuming I'm not heading down there to replace the Cobalt (I wouldn't even think of that), for my 2nd car I'd throw practicality out the window. I would strongly consider getting a gently used CPO GTO, SSR, or even a Corvette. If I'm limited to new cars, I'd get, in this order: Solstice (only if I can get one without being raped by the dealer) GTO (torrid red or impulse blue) G6 GTP coupe (electric blue) HHR (I'd buy it in either laser blue, orange, or purple, and paint it black above the beltline) Cobalt SS/SC (victory red, replace wing with LS style wing)

It's a toss up between the Solstice or take a deeper cut and get the Envoy Denali, I love the both of them.

The C6. I still have a love-hate thing going for it. One day I want to get it, the next day I don't. I took my Silverado in for service last week and I was going to talk to a salesman about the C6, but I didn't have a chance. The other vehicle that I'm infatuated with is the HHR.

Most likely a G35. Preferrably a coupe but possibly a sedan.
