pre-owned

Do you know why this Honda CR-V is smiling {or perhaps laughing}?



Because I brought it home just in time for our trip to visit my sister.

We never buy brand new cars.
Our car of choice is 2 years old with 20,000 miles.
This one fit that requirement perfectly.

What's your preference - new or used?

Used - because my husband sells used cars!

Used. We snagged a used Ford Focus with only 5600 miles and two years left on the warranty. It still smelled new. You can't go wrong with a Honda. We owned our last one for 18 years.

Used- let someone else pay that high price first!
Congrats on the new car, Mary, and the trip, too!

Mary,
You are going to love your CRV! I know several people who own one and love it! Congrats! Enjoy your visit with your sister!
We buy either, depending on the need and timing. Currently we are on the look out for a used car for Zac!

Right now we have one of each...but my husband and I decided a while back...we never need to buy a new car again.
Enjoy your visit with your sister! And your ride there!

I think looking down at a smiling CARtoon character while driving would make one very happy! Have a nice trip to see your sister!

Used-
I let others pay the depreciation. Then I swoop in for the bargain!

Used - all the kinks are worked out.
We have a CRV and we love it!

Ours is generally pre-owned too. We like them with low mileage. Recently, the deals on a new Camry was better than any preowned one so that's what the husband got.

Used, we are them same...always used and around 20,000 miles! Enjoy your new wheels and a visit with your sister!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

We have one of each sitting in our garage. Hope you have a safe trip!

We never buy new, my husband says it loses thousand just by driving it out of the showroom!

Teresa said...

My current ride was new, but I've had it for fourteen years and I love it so much I hope it never dies!
