I strongly dislike the act of researching/shopping for cars, let alone spending money on something which is 90% utilitarian to me. Replacing my 2006 Hyundai Sonata V-6 soon. I bought it new for $16,900. Just googling, I am getting sticker shock. Comparable car is now $30,000, depending on make. I loved the car- nice engine power, sunroof, good ride but the ride isn't what it once was, it's been rusting the past couple years, the heat/A.C. works only on fan speed 1 and it needs new tires. Not worth fixing at this point. I don't think I'll buy a Hyundai again as I don't think I want to drive a car for longer than 5-7 years and Hyundai depreciate too fast. A comparable Honda seems to sell for a few grand more but sells used in 5-7 years for many grands more! I drive only 10-12 thousand miles per year. I am 6'3" so Honda Civics and the like are too small for me so I have to class up. Gag. Where's my subsidy for this handicap? I hate spending money on cars, hate shopping for them. I've never considered a luxury car but I've seen some used prices (high) and wonder if it could actually be cheaper (and quieter and smoother) to drive say a $40,000 car rather than a $30,000 car if one is going to sell in 5-7 years. Recommend me a good car of any price... one that you personally own.
