      Dealers are already advertising 0% interest rates and cash incentives...I think it will be a great time to get into new ride in the following months. And petrol is getting cheap
      Fu*k the virus.

      Monday this week I stopped in the local dealer to look at 2019 Jetta GLI that was heavily discounted.

      I talked up the huge stock market drop that day, told them I was not expecting to do this so soon, but the their already existing discount of $6,600 on the Jetta and the people first warranty had me considering.

      I leave without the car - but I managed to get them to remove all of the their dealer shenanigans...Nitrogen, 3 years maintenance, Tint, door cups, unlimited car washes, I had great counter arguments for all of them. This they valued at $1,795.

      I email them later, asking about rates etc... get them to match a BofA rate that was lower then their offer.


      I just checked their web site, but see o mention of 0% rates. Perhaps I'll ask tomorrow when I go to sign.

      I've got Carmax transferring a vehicle to my local lot, perhaps no one will want to buy it even when it gets here.

      does leasing a Challenger widebody count as social distancing since it's so damn big?

      i mean, you'll be at least 6 feet away, enveloped in a giant cloud of tire smoke, and probably be running your filtered HVAC...so yes!

      I'm all about buying something...except that I'd first have to sell something. So probably not the best timing for me.

      If I have the actual cash laying around for a car and don't absolutely have to have one, I'm putting it in my investment portfolio towards retirement.

      I'll probably chuck a couple of grand I have with my guy in cash options, but I'll wait to see how low it goes and get in late next week. It's just a little, but I wouldn't mind doubling it over the next year or so!

      Yup. Bought a CPO Accord on Saturday. The dealership was just about a ghost town.

      Because we're planning on selling our house in Texas and buying a house here in CA this summer (and knock on wood Coronavirus doesn't impact those plans), if I had to suddenly replace my DD right now it would be with something cheap but interesting that I could pay for with cash, enjoy for the rest of the year, then eventually replace with a new/cpo car later. IMO it would be a perfect opportunity for me to check a 'must own' box like getting an older M car or something. However if life changed and I really needed reliable transportation cheap, it's good to know deals can be had.

      This crisis is going to crush economic output, driving us into a recession - once that sets in the real price/incentive games will hit (if you are gainfully employed as the fallout filters through the economy).
      I expect a larger auto crash than 2008-9.
