It all depends on your age/bank account/social circle/DD yes/no/family yes/no/hobbies --then you can decide whether you want a used one/new one--how new !

Welcome to the forum Zach!

The best piece of advice I can give to you is ask questions! I can attest that many sellers (including dealerships) are hesitant to answer questions that may lead to you walking away so be tough! Be fair, but be tough because it's your money you're spending and, unfortunately, there are many people out there who have no qualms about robbing you of yours on a bad deal.

Second piece of advice is ask this group when you do find a viable candidate, we're here to help!
