How much of this is the crap trade in values not matching the crazy used car sales prices.
Those who know don’t get taken advantage of but I’ve known more ignorant folks who got just slayed on their trade ins for cars the dealer then puts on their used lots at 100% profit.
My kids whine about new cars - they don't want them, and can't understand why they are so attractive to people. I keep reminding them - a seat for every ass.
It does boggle my mind that people roll debt in cars. I just can't even. I have too much self-preservation instinct to do that.
たくさんとうふ、よ Where did all these damn Toyotas come from?
Compared to a British roadster, all Volkswagens are reliable!

I know a guy who has done this on several cars in a row. According to him, when he bought a Focus ST a bunch of yrs ago, he rolled in what he owed on a previous car. When I met him (SIL's BF---ugh...), he had the ST. About every 3 times I saw him, I'd hear about how much he owed on the car vs how much it's worth. Said dude and SIL had an unplanned kid. SIL can't drive stick. Within 6 months (starting in January 2018), they lease a new Highlander (trading in a perfectly functional Ford Escape) and buy a new Camry (both 2018 MY cars)---what's owed on the ST is rolled into the Camry. Oh, and dude doesn't work. He's a stay at home dad. Nothing wrong with that in itself, but SIL has now strapped herself to a whole lot of financial responsibility over the course of 18 months. In this situation, I think there's a bit of jealousy between their current situation and what the rest of the SIL's siblings have. The SIL is frankly a weirdo (typical engineer, LOL) and dude is nice enough on his own, but the constant reminders of their blantantly stupid money spending is tough. My wife once commented to her sister about the unusual and irresponsible spending they were doing and it was definitely not taken well.
