I see what you mean... However even if I have the cash to buy outright I never do, it's can be cheaper to finance

So far in my life, I will only ever buy a car that I can afford to pay with cash. Cars depreciate sooo quickly. If I spend $40k on my house, in 5 years time, that 40k will be worth 50k. If I spend 40k on a car, in 5 years time that 40k will be worth 20k. (I am totally guessing with both of those numbers!) I'm happy with th $5k car I paid cash for, & keep my only debt my home loan. I think it's personal decision, I clearly dont highly value a flashy car - but if it is something you want &feel like it's really worth it,then go for it

Find a fleet company that provide cars for non profits, the companies often pay 5-15000 less for the vehicle and sell it back to the dealer for around what they buy it for. Often the cars are around 9 months old and have only done 15000kms and have been well maintained.

I've got a Mazda CX-5 and I love it. Although it's now 5 years old and starting to fall apart a bit. Not sure if it's because of the way I drive it or because it's kind of reached the end of its useful life.. I've just spent $2000 on new parts and battery, and I've spent a fortune on tyres over the last few years. It's a great SUV, but the engine has always been a bit weak (especially uphill acceleration) because it's a 2ltr engine, which is small for SUV. I bought it new - I'm glad I did because if it's only good for 5 years, I wouldn't have wanted a 2nd hand one.
Thinking of going for a 2nd hand Audi Q5 next
