A lot of members here advocate paying cash. I know it would be real hard for me to turn $25,000 worth of irreplaceable cash over to the dealer. Enjoy!

We traded in a 1996 Ford Ranger that was manual EVERYTHING (transmission, windows, door locks, etc) so you can probably imagine what a huge step up this is for us
Yeah, my last new car purchase was an upgrade from a 2004 to a 2012 and I couldn't believe all of the features my new car had over the old one. To name a few:

-Heated/cooled seats and cup holders!

-Not only do the sun visors have those little flaps that extend the visor, the whole visor extends if I need it to.

-No gas cap to mess with. Just open the fuel filler door and gas up.

-Bluetooth for hands free phone operation and streaming music from my phone.

-Remote start and keyless entry. I never thought I would use this feature but can't imagine being without it now.

I could go on but you get the idea.

At year end might ignore true car price as they are way off. Just bought new truck over 2k less than true price. With incentive to dealer and buyers changing at this time of year its hard for them to keep up with pricing; really.
