Hi everyone. I am looking into buying my first "new" (less than 3 yrs old) car in the next couple of months. After doing a lot of research I've decided that a 2009 Prius would be perfect for me, but they are at the very fringe of my price range. I plan to spend about $17,000 at most (hoping to stay around 16 if possible). So far, I've seen all of two 09 Prius' in the Seattle area around that price. Do the prices on cars typically drop when the newest model comes out? I plan on buying in Feb, which I believe is after the 2012's are out I believe, so I'm hoping that maybe there will be more options then? Any insight would be appreciated, and sorry if this is not the correct place to post this.
