I have no regrets

I bought a used Nissan pickup 10 1/2 years ago and have had no regrets whatsoever. I don't care that it wasn't American. I paid cash for it to a nice gentleman who most likely put that money back into the local economy and I have a nice used truck that is still kicking! There's nothing better than being part of the new elite class called "people with paid for vehicles"! My truck rarely needs repairs and compared to what people pay in monthly truck payments, I'd rather pay for the repairs. I keep the oil changed regularly and it works like a champ! And the older class of Japanese vehicles have much better gas mileage so I'm happy all around. My advice, think beyond the purchase and how life is going to be. Are you going to be chained into high gas prices? Can you afford it? Do you mind knowing that you may have to pay a lot and often for repairs? If you want a new truck and have the cash, find one of those that the car salesman drove off the lot a few times. You can save mega bucks (thousands) on those rather than the one that never left the lot. Good luck!
