Lets remember again that in the first place, cars are totally worthless investments. You will NEVER get your investment back, no matter how loaded or stripped it is, no matter what car it is, no exceptions. If your dying for retained value, put down 30-50% of the value and it will never be upside down. The only way a car is a sound investment is if you work your way a car for 2 grand, drive it for 2 years and invest maybe a grand in repairs while in that 2 year time you save up 2500. Sell it for 500, and now you have 3 grand. Repeat that process for a decade and youll have thousands in your pocket and never make payments

Well.....don't let all the air out the sails!!! You can get lucky once in a while...
