This discussion arose because the people that are complaining about the value loss are trying to get out of their cars quickly, because they can't stand the issues with them. Therefore ... they didn't get many hours of 'playing' with them at stoplights, and if they did, and valued that aspect ... they wouldn't be complaining about the lack of resale value ..... because it would have been worth it to them.
As I said ... if you end up liking the car and are going to keep it forever (or a long time), buy whatever you want to ... but if you get a problem car that you end up hating ... and you bought all the bells and whistles .... you're gonna keep it ... or get wrecked on the resale or trade-in value.
You make your purchase and live with the consequences.
