Buying a used car is a lot cheaper these days. The number of miles is the big thing. Lot of cars had head gasket problems or transmission problems. They are not a cheap fix. On the other hand, you can ask for the service records. If they are not available, get the Vin # and ask carfax. They can tell you what the car you are interested in has gone through. Accident, flood, ect. If your dealership says things like " this is a steal, why do you want all this stuff for ?" Leave !

Comfort. Performance. Size. Appearance. Cost. Resale value. Insurance cost. Property taxes. Reliability. Those are all important considerations. Any of these could trump fuel economy. It is not all about mpg.
