Accounting

I want a nice used car but the accountant in me won’t let me. Help me decide... a 2015 Honda for 12k or a 2017 Audi for 23k? I’m a staff auditor so y’all already know my salary 😩

Honda. Save your money for a nicer car in the future or another big purchase - life expenses add up quick and saving where you can is big.

Honda. They will both be $0 after enough years.

Infiniti, Lexus, Acura. Anything German will cost you the price of the Honda to maintain

Get the Audi and then list it at Getaround. I make about $500 a month which nearly covers the full car payment.

I have a Civic that I got that was 3 years old with like 16k miles. Maybe i paid $14k. Never broken down, ever. 50k in. To me, reliability is huge. Audi is just Volkswagen. If you go foreign, least go reliable is my POV.

Honda. I did the whole nice car thing for several years. It was a nice experience, but if I could do it again, I would have gotten the Honda instead

If you’re willing to spend $23k for Audi, why not just get a 2018 Honda? It’s cheaper than the used Audi.

Audi’s are so expensive to maintain. I have one now and am always shocked at the prices of basic maintenance.

Don’t be such an accountant. You work hard why don’t you play hard (of course with in your means). Get the Audi and tighten up spending on other things

Honda... it’s super reliable. If you don’t make that much money, it’s silly to get an Audi. Lol.

I love German cars myself and have had Audi, VW, Porsche, MB, and BMW, and lemme tell you, Audi and VW have been the most trouble followed by BMW and then MB and Porsche being the most reliable. Fascinatingly enough my least reliable car of any in my life was a 2007 Honda Fit 😂. I currently love my $8,000 cash paid off 2012 Chevy Volt though. It’s amazing

Is that for an Audi A3? Seems cheap for a 2017 Audi

I’d get the Honda and save the incremental cash for a down payment on a house, an asset with potential to appreciate. Then again interest rates are increasing, so the market is not favoring buyers relative to before. I made the mistake of overpaying for a car, and while I had aggressively paid it off in 2 years, needless to say, I consequently have less capital for housing or wealth-building investments.

Maybe something in the middle? I feel like you’ll not feel accomplished with the Honda and Audi reliability is meh

Audi has a better brand name. I’m childish y’all, I like the expensive brands. But thanks guys! I’ll get the Honda and stack up.
