This has been my auto shopping experience over the last 20 years, YMMV: I start out shopping for used and end up buying new. This is because the used vehicles were overpriced, attractive financing on new, new car warranty and peace of mind with known maintenance history. If I'd have found a CPO at a good price that could have change things.We won't be buying a 2020 or 2021; we don't buy brand new cars anymore. The initial off-the-lot depreciation just isn't worth it for us. We're specifically looking at a 2017 year model because it's the far more attractive second generation and the oldest (least expensive) year of the second generation.
