This is a picture of the first brand-new car I ever got. It was just 5 years ago, and I still love this car. But, I have since learned that cars lose their value way too fast. You're much better off buying a "gently-used" model with low miles. But, it was still fun knowing that I was the first owner. It only had 5 test-drive miles on it when I bought it (three of which were from me). It's treated me well so far. Let's hope it gets me through without breaking down before I can pay it off.
