    Problem with older cars is the lack of technology. I've gotten used to the new stuff. Blue tooth linking, I pod access etc.....

    1/2 years old and I'm getting a new one in a month or 2.

    Yea, I've actually done some research on lease programs, sometimes on Slickdeals.net they post lease deals, and these "mathematicians"(jk...just some regular geeks) did some number crunching, and there are ways to find out if you are saving or losing money on a lease.

    There are some cases where you can spend significantly less leasing then owning/financing. It's all about the monethly payment they let you have though. (that's somewhat obvious).

    Right now I have a 2010 Accord Crosstour. I'm keeping it for a few more months because it has 4WD.
    I'm looking at an Accord 2 door Coupe. its a bit smaller than what I have now and pretty sleek.
    The engine on these cars is unbelievable. The one I have now is 278 HP and I'm as fast as almost anything out there. Plus I have my own needs. Honda's have incredible stereos. So do Mazda's. Toyota's suck. They are nice vehicles but I gotta play Old Guns LOUD!!!!

    By leasing, we walk into a dealer and walk out with a new car and don't pay a dime down.

    I have nav....its good for trips.

    satellite radio, i personally feel is garbage. but i know alot of ppl like it

    the ipod hookups for the in-dash control is pretty good so long as it works lol. i have the cable for my honda, but i never hooked it up because it requires dashboard removal >.<
