You guys dont like buying used cars? WHY? Let me hear...cuz you dont know how it was broken in?
You're all just trying to make yourself feel better since you have already lost $20k by buying new.
Nothing wrong with buying a used car, as long as you do all your hw.
Sometimes, its ok to buy a car thats been in minor accident too, most likely you end up saving even more. In OP's case, this car had way too much damage to even consider buying it...
