If you're going to be buying a new car just because of the price gas, keep in mind that the cost of a new car and insuring a new car will definitely cost you way more than what you save on gas in the long run.

Agreed. Private seller $3000, with very little more beyond that even if you did address the head.

Depreciation
New $10000
'04 $5000
'08 $2500
'12 $1250

A dealer may give you $500-$1000.
