Brand new JK... Feasible for the average Joe?

I'm 19, living with my folks and working a modest shop job. I don't rake in the money, but i'm doing well enough that i live comfortably(And i could living on my own, too). I don't have any real debts besides my Jeep and the duratracs i have on it(The duratracs which i could pay off immediately if i wanted to; simply using them to build credit). Eventually, i'd love a brand new vehicle i could take care of from the start and keep it running for years and years. Though, i take a look at vehicle payments and wonder if it'd be doable. I would wait quite a number of years before purchasing a brand new vehicle(Waiting until i'm on my own, better credit, etc). But i'm curious as to if there are any really-affordable loans you're able to get with good credit(I am very careful with mine and try to build it responsibly any chance i get) and which is the best way to go; through the dealer, credit union, bank, etc.
Also, i'm wondering if it's worth it. Personally, i'd like to roll a new one off the lot for fully warranted coverage for a number of years. Though i would have no problem with a minimally used one from a couple years ago, as long as the coverage is comparable. Though i'd assume this varies from dealer to dealer. Can anyone share any new-vehicle buying experiences? Not trying to get too personal with finances, though i would like to find out more about how "smart" it really is to purchase a new vehicle.

Extra detail:
I bought my current 2000 TJ in May. I love my jeep, and really love TJs in general. But, i fell victim to Jeep fever and bought a jeep that was a little more of a fixer-upper than i had hoped. 8 months of frame patching and various other repairs, i still wouldn't have gone with anything other than a jeep. But with the continuous work I've put into my jeep, I've run into shoddy workmanship from previous owners/shops that have worked on it. And now i'm faced with something that i believe might be piston slap or a broken skirt. So my engine is on a timer itself before it needs rebuilt/swapped. While i don't hope to jump on a brand new 2014 JK tomorrow, i'm wondering if anyone had ever been in a similar situation?

New vehicles depreciate the moment you drive off the lot. Jeeps do hold their value pretty well but they are still worth less.

I prefer new vehicles because of the warranty. I want something reliable that I know will be ready to roll when I am and that I won't have to dump a bunch of money into.

Typically a Credit Union will provide the best rates although often times dealers can get their customers really good rates too.

If you were looking into getting a new Jeep it would be worth your while to check out Tread Lightly. When you sign up you are eligible to get a discount lower than invoice after a month of membership.

Good luck.

Going to speak as a Dad here. At 19 don't get yourself indebted buying a new vehicle, of any kind. If you can pay cash go for it, if not save your money. If you need to buy a more reliable Jeep start saving and buy a decent used one. Right now you're free to explore and grow, once you become indebted you're stuck or worse. If you're not heading off to school then time to be working a couple jobs, saving and moving out, or saving or school - either way I wouldn't suggest buying a new vehicle.

Care to provide something constructive? Personally i can't derive if this is an insult or a general comment.

And i want to make it clear; i'm not running off to the dealership tomorrow. This is something that, if it does happen, will be far in the future(Honestly, if i buy one "brand new" it might not even be a JK, as we're due for a model change in the next few years). I know it's not smart to go off as a 19 year old and roll a brand new vehicle off the lot. That's just asking for trouble. That's why i'm waiting. I want to be on my own; possibly married, and know what i'm doing in life. Right now, no plans for school and additional debt. I'm actually working on ingraining myself in my company and moving up.

Buying a decent used Jeep definitely is another thought of mine. Possibly even a compromise between the two ideas. An 06 TJ from down south is definitely something I've thought of in alternative. And that opens up the possibility of purchasing a rubi that isn't brand new.

A couple of thoughts. If you are planning on going to school then I would wait. If you plan on working full time and have the credit then I would go new. Less hassle and the warranty. Yes you have the deprecation right off the bat but you know the vehicle history.

Thanks; i'm aware of the depreciation right off the lot. If i were to pull the trigger on a brand new vehicle, i'd be 100% sure that i'd keep it running for at least 20+ years. And a jeep is that kind of vehicle. Thankfully, that aspect makes the loss in value less of a factor.
Personally, I've always been the kind to say "Pay for the best and make it last" rather than "go the cheaper route and replace it sooner". I don't buy garbage, i save for the good stuff and take care of what i have(Though that value of mine has been tested with my current jeep, as i have trouble buying premium parts for a vehicle who's future is uncertain). And i believe that thinking plays in here. Though i know there's a difference between "buying the good stuff" and overpaying. That's why i'm asking for people's buying experiences with new vehicles. Also, with a brand new vehicle i know 100% of all the work that has gone into it. And there's a good chance i'll do most of it myself(Besides what is warrantied by the dealer in the first few years of it's life).

Also, i want to clarify. Though me admitting to jumping the gun on my first jeep might make me seem impulsive, in general i really am not. I've learned from that, and while i'm not a penny pincher, i'm smart and careful with my money and my credit.

Buy what will make you happy and buy it once, don't compromise. If you can't afford it just wait a while until you can, that way you will not regret your purchase.

To give you an idea of payments, I got myself a loaded six speed 2013 Rubi in the spring. With $10.000 down and $527 per month at 4% for the next five years. Alot of money but I'm very happy with what I got with no regrets. Always buy once.

Big credit mistake people make is letting a bunch of places run their credit to shop rates... Do not let a bunch of places run your credit. Check rates online and join the credit union in your area with the best rate they like to give loans to people that they have a history with.... Then when your ready to buy get prequalified with them and shop for a good price on the jeep. Do not shop by payments. Know how much you want to pay monthly work the loan with the bank shop for the best price on the jeep. Hope that makes sense. Until you build a long credit history this is an easy way to do it as shopping for a loan takes points off your FICO.

Something else to add is a lot of the times the dealer can give the best rate. Key with this would be get the price of the jeep worked first and make sure it is what you want and know it is something you can afford and work financing through them. You have to really pay attention when you do this as the sales guys play games and sometimes they just have no clue as to what the hell they are doing. Make sure they understand you only want to run your credit once as you want to keep your credit clean. What I usually do is talk to the finance guy and I don't let the sales guys muddy the water. I tell him I don't want my credit ran a bunch of times and I ask him what is the best rate he has for someone with good credit. Understanding that I have to qualify for that rate.

If you have a steady job that provides some job security so you know you will be working steady for the next couple of years I say buy a brand new vehicle and keep that vehicle for the next 10 or 15 years. I bought my first brand new vehicle right after I turned 18 yoa It was in 1977 and it was a brand new 1978 F150 4X4. I paid it off early and never regretted it. If on the other hand you do not have a secure job and mom and dad are footing your bills then I say no. I would also suggest sitting down with your folks and seeing how long they plan on letting you live at home etc. Last thing a young person needs is to have a car payment and then have rent payment and no job. Definitly do not want to start off life with bad credit. One think I used to do before making a big purchase on credit was figure out what a payment would be then I would make that payment to myself every month for 6 or 7 months to see how it was going to be and if I could do it without any problems or shorting myself on the payment I would do it and I would use that money I had paid myself to make a down payment.

This is a good way to go.

My answer is: don't.

Pay off the TJ, and enjoy your toy and keep it long after potential future responsibilities or finances make keeping such a beast as a daily driver "unfeasible".

The most important thing, at 19, is to have options... ...and a new loan is a commitment based on a "here and now". Opportunities may come which might make you prefer to not be tied to an extended loan.

Lots of younger folks whp have worked for me have purchased new vehicles... and rare is the one who felt, during or after, it was a good call.

It's all about percentage of income, a d how much you apportion to a vehicle.

Here are my two cents for what they're worth: at 19, living with mom and dad, I would not recommend a new car. Now is the time you should be building your savings and keeping your expenses low. Once out on their own, many people find it very difficult to save for a while, and having a pile of savings will help you a lot. This is a great opportunity. You said that you work a "modest" shop job, so I would focus on building your skills while your expenses are low and you can be flexible. Think about how you can position yourself for a successful future. When it is time to buy a new Jeep, there is nothing wrong with financing rather than paying cash. Especially when like today, you can get rates in the very low single digits. Your savings will do better invested. Credit inquiries initiated during 30 days of auto shopping count as one inquiry, so you will not kill your score by shopping multiple lenders. I hope this helps.

This only applies to mortgages not auto.
Edit: and its a big hit... You should watch your FICO before and after and you will see what I mean.

Another thing to consider at 19 is how much insurance is going to cost on a brand new Jeep....I went through serious sticker shock on my insurance for the first new truck I purchased.....even with nothing on your license it will shock you how much it costs. Also not sure about your state but in Maine I can always plan on dumping about $1k to register a new vehicle the first year..then it drops 20% a year for 5 yrs and stays there.

That's not completely true. If you are shopping for an auto loan, and you have any number of places run your credit, if its within a certain time period it won't hurt your credit. (Source...My Brother works for Experian). Stretch that out to one or two every few months then yes....it will suffer. Now when you actually accept that loan...your score will drop big time.

It's not as simple as each credit check equals a drop in your score. Plus each credit reporting agency has their own complicated formula to calculate your score. Auto Dealers also calculate your score differently as well based on your history of car payments.

That said...if you can afford it buy it and don't look back. Take care of it and stretch the life out of it and sell it when its totally paid off.

I typically average 3-4 new cars a year and I know dealers and some bank workers will say its ok to run your credit multiple times so long as its in 30 days. I can tell you from personal experience with auto loans that is not the case. I think people say that because it is true on mortgages and a good majority of the time they are just talking about it because that is what they heard.
Of course I am one of those that monitors my credit constantly so its the details that matter to me.
Edit: also when your 19 and trying to build credit its the details like this that really matter because every point matters.

Because credit scoring systems count multiple auto loan inquiries as a single inquiry, shotgunning does not affect a person’s ability to qualify for credit.
From Experian.....

Impact on credit scores of inquiries for an auto loan | Ask Experian

Again....it depends on the credit reporting agency if you are doing to checks yourself. I also actively monitor my score from all three agency's. Also if you have a good payment history with auto loans dealers usually up your score to a "Dealer Enhanced" score which takes into account that auto payment history.

If you are averging 3 or 4 cars per year you are having those credit checks spread out over a long period of time which does hurt your score. For someone like myself....who shopped all the rates in 3 days...and won't do it again for the next few years...my score didn't get hit at all.

And again to the teenager....get the car if you can afford it. Think about what happens if you lose your job...do you have enough saved to make the payments until you can find work again? You're young...you have a long time to build your credit and it sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders.

If the sh*t hits the fan could you still afford it for a few months while you are unemployed? If yes...do it and enjoy the hell out of it.

Hexiled Razz don't listen to the negative nancy's....you're 19, you're making good choices, you put yourself out there to ask about this stuff and that's more than I thought about when I was 19. YOU'RE 19...do it and have fun!!!

You are already on the right foot.

You couldn't be more wrong. This applies to both auto loans and mortgages.

Thanks for the info. I was aware that getting your credit ran will lower it, and i'll definitely research that more when i seriously start thinking about a new vehicle.
I did think about insurance as well. When i was comparing rates with my provider when i was looking for my first Jeep, i was shocked how much the rates jumped due to just a couple years. I'd do the same thing before purchasing a new vehicle to make sure i could afford both comfortably.

Additionally, a lot of people seem to be pointing out that i'm 19 and i should focus on moving out before a brand new vehicle. Perhaps i wasn't clear enough in my original post; This wouldn't happen for several years. Taking care of my current vehicle's issues to make it as reliable as possible and moving out are my top priorities. And all my bills and debts are my own.

The subject was simply in my head and i thought i'd ask about it to gather some sort of information. In no way am i making decisions based on this, i just wish to have more knowledge about the ups and downs to new vehicles. All things like warranties, payments, etc included.

New vehicles have always been a novel idea to me when growing up. My parents never had purchased one, which always had lead me believe that it was only something that "rich" people did. Though, owning my own (used)vehicles has taught me the up sides to owning a new one. Which is what got me the idea for future consideration.

Your doing the right thing. I lived with my folks after High School, for part of College, a bit after College, then again when I lost my job.

When I was 25 I bought my first Jeep....yes I was living at home...I had horrible luck finding a job after college and had to work for the local city to make my student loan payments. When things picked up at the city job I figured hell...i'm going to buy a Jeep and hit the desert.

Best choice I ever made. I ended up finding a kick ass job a few years later, moved out for good, ended up getting married, and things are going great.

Does anyone here realize how crappy the job market is for graduates in the last 8 years....it sucks.

People think the road to adulthood is one pre-set path when in reality it's about a lot of ups and downs, learning experiences, wins, failures, and in the end success.

You seem like you are good to go. You're 19...just out of High School. Buy a Jeep man...as if teenagers never want to buy cars. You're being treated as an anomaly...lol...what 19 year old doesn't want a car? If you are in a position to buy one do it. If I could have done it at 19/20 I would have bought then too!

I also think there is a bit of jealousy from folks seeing a young adult being able to buy a new Jeep when most of us weren't able to do it until much later.

If you ever come out to California you have a place to stay and a friend to hit the Mojave with.

Thanks guys! I like all the positive reinforcement, especially since the stereotype that pops into peoples' heads when you admit you're 19 isn't the best

Though i admit, job security isn't something i really considered a lot. I work for a company a relative(Also a jeeper) was able to get me into. It's a new shop that was opened, and when we're fully staffed i'll have seniority over a good percentage of the staff. Regardless of that, it's still perfectly possible for a SHTF scenario and i could lose my job. And if that happens, i must say i don't have an amazing resume considering this job is early in my working career.
I'll definitely take that into consideration as well when i'm looking at those jumbles of numbers that i possibly could be paying someday.

Thanks again!
