I'm currently working on a project that may have a duration of around 1 year.
I get paid a Per Diem allowance which is also to cover the cost of a rental vehicle but as it's not far off $1000 per month for a rental car I'm simply thinking that 12 x $1,000 = $12,000
Now, I'm no mug for buying new cars generally speaking but the price of used cars is ridiculous around here - I'm not interested in paying $7~8000 for a 5 or 6 year old car with 100,000 miles on the clock, when I could probably get something new for not much more than $12,000 with a warranty and sell it later for probably not much less...or that's the plan I have in mind right now...best laid plans and all that!
Anybody know of any great deals on cheap new cars in the San Francisco area - or failing that, any great places to get a great deal on a rental car?
I'm not too fussed what the vehicle is to be honest but would prefer something from an Asian marque.
What happened to all of the new sub $10k new cars you used to see advertised?
Sounds like an idea (something I hadn't considered) but I'm still thinking that I'd not lose around $6k through depreciation on a low end car after using it for a year?
I'll have a look through the link you sent me to see if there is anything for a small econobox that will get me from A to B.
I have a few options.
1. Ship one of our cars over from Florida for around $1000 and then either drive or have it shipped back for another $1000, so thats $2000.
2. Rent a car and shell out $12,000
3. Buy a Nissan Versa base model for around $10~11K +TT&T use it for a year then sell it - I'm sure you'd still get at least $9K+ for a one year old car - or basing the resale value on used car ads - I'd probably be able to sell it for around $14K.... ..
4. New option to take over a lease but would just be looking at a compact car - if I could get something for around $200 per month, this could be a very good idea.
