Hey guys, as some of you may know, I leased a new Honda Insight in August of 2013 and traded in my blue moon pearl 2002 Prius. Firstly let me say that I only bought the Insight because I didn't want a used car because I haven't had good luck from used cars. Toyota wasn't giving me a good trade on my 2002 Prius that was in MINT condition. Honda was giving me a good bit more and offering a better price for the Insight, so I pulled the trigger thinking "Oh! This will be different! I've always owned Prius' and now I can say I've owned a Honda hybrid too! They're great cars!" I pretty much talked myself into it. There was no pressure from the dealer. I now have 2,600 miles on the car and needless to say, I can't stand it. I just can't handle the IMA system. I personally think it's plain dangerous pulling out into an intersection where it hesitates as the engine HAS to start back up to get going, then jerks forward as the CVT engages. I got the base model that lacks cruise control, steering wheel mounted controls, yadda yadda. So lately, I had been looking at used second generation Prius' and this one Toyota dealer called "DAY TOYOTA" in Pittsburgh has always been so helpful and kind to me. They don't pressure you and they're very soft spoken and kind. So my sales lady Karin called me to tell me they had just gotten in a used 2007 Prius with 101,000 miles in mint condition that had one owner and would be priced at about $9,000 to $10,000. So I drove up today to look at it and it is in excellent shape. Even crazier, the man who had traded it in was at the dealer when I was there today so I got to speak with him first hand about it. He was about 77 years old and he said he drove it to see his grandchildren in Vermont, yadda yadda, and that he had all the service done at Day Toyota every 4,000 miles (even though I usually go 2k-3k longer after I put in synthetic) and he just replaced the 12v battery last summer, and put new tires on it 15,000 miles ago. It's really a great car and has the options I want. It has no dents and very little hood dings, none that I even noticed really. I can just tell it was really well cared for. So here's the question. my Insight's payment is $282.24 a month for three years at 10,000 miles a year. I owe $17,000 on it and the dealer is only giving me $14,000 (they have a used Insight on their lot they've had for almost a year with 30,000 miles for $12,000 that has not sold) and I can finance the Prius for 5 years and the payment she said she could work out to be between 290-308 a month, but that's for five years. Then when it's paid off, I could sell it for 4,500+ (I take REALLY good care of my cars.) and make that money I lost initially back. Whereas, the Insight, I'd be stuck with a car I didn't like for 8 or more years paying ~200+ a month. I see the Prius as an investment and I realize a return eventually. Whereas others are too near sighted and look at what I'm losing now instead of later. Can someone PLEASE give me advise?
