New truck/used truck: what to do?Submitted by Ulfilas on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 10:16
I'm looking to purchase a new or used vehicle. Preferably a crew cab truck. But, I am too full of guilt to help any of the bailout motor companies (Chrysler, GM, Ford, etc). Alternatively, one could say buying an import isn't helping US owned businesses. The free market person in me says screw local businesses and buy whatever suits my needs. I currently have a Hyundai whose spare parts are all shipped from Korea and I haven't had an ounce of guilt for owning it because it was cheap and served its purpose. I actually discovered today Suzuki makes trucks and still operates in the US! I haven't seen a Suzuki on the road in a while but maybe I am not looking.
What are some of the DPs ideas on vehicles? Buy used? Buy new? Starve the Government owned Auto-industry? I am seeking your input.
