I prefer to buy a new car not a second hand. At least it's new and you are the first one to use. Im not generalizing but few of the second hand got defective parts that's why the owner sold it.

If you get a secondhand car from a reputable dealership they will usually not sell you garbage, if it is somewhere they sell new cars, they often fix all the problems before selling it.

I prefer buying a new one.I don't actually prefer small cars.I prefer cars that can be used as extra source of income.in my country,public transportation is a must.a van that can fit around 2-21 people is more convenient than buying a car that can fit 5 persons.you can use the car for carpooling.it is a great way to earn extra money.

I prefer to buy a new car. A second hand car, though cheaper, will bring you headache. A new car is expensive but it will not give you car problems for years. I always think that I should not regret spending for a brand new car since my life and my family's is always on the line when riding a car.

i think that if you have a lot of money you have to buy a new car, advanced systems and safety, and a new car is always better then a used car. Useda car are for who don't have to possiblity to buy a new one, or maybe needs teh car only a few times in an year. But used cars are not safe as new cars and there is no warranty on used cars, so if you have problems you have to pay.

Well if you have the money to buy an new car or if you can make payments even and afford it, I thinkt he new cars are always the best way to go. But even used cars aren't bad. Although if you do go for a used car make sure its newer. But you know, my boyfriends care (we share it) only cost him $1800 and it has 150,000 miles on it but it runs great. I mean, I wouldnt trust it on a drive much longer tehn 3-4 hours but its a great A-B car. It really depends on what you can afford.

If you are perfect in driving, then go for a new one, or else buy a second hand one, perfect your driving and then go for a new one

If you buy new, it is more respected but the thing loses thousands of dollars in value as soon as you take it off the lot. If you have the money, the best way to go is to get a low mileage used car, because if you buy one new it will be the same thing after a little while.
