      I would use CarMax if its in your area. My DH bought a 02 Nissan Pathfinder in 05 and paid considerably less than NEW. We trust CarMax and Nissan (Woodfield)VERY MUCH so we new it would be a good deal. Miata might be more insurance cost as its a sports car. Be sure to find out the costs of insurance for each vehicle you consider.

      Best of luck to you.

      It’s gonna happen sooner than I expected. I love my current car, but the
      mileage is getting high and the value is getting lower & lower, so in order
      to get a good price or trade in for it, we need to consider replacing it. As
      much as it will hurt my feelings more than my budget (we’ve built in a new
      car in the budget, expecting it to happen in the next year or so), I just
      hate to write a car payment check.
      Do I look for a newer used car or get a new one off the lot? Do I indulge my
      midlife crisis mode & get my dream car? Dream car is a Miata, which would be
      about the same price as a small SUV like I have, but I still have a son at
      home that would go on vacation with us & a dog………We will be getting
      that son a cheap used car in the late fall, so technically his car could be
      the “vacation” car……..Hubby also just had to trade his truck for a new
      extended cab which could be used for the “family” car if necessary.
      kily, he gets a truck allowance from work, so that helped with his
