1. Around $11,000 -A 2008 Toyota Yaris Hatchback-will be used so little to no warranty. I fit fairly inside it- I'm 6'1." Toyota is quality so I hope it'll last long, but lack of warranty scares me. Having to not use my savings is appealing.
2. Around $18,000 out the door- A 2010 KIA Soul. Brand new- full 5 yr +10yr power train warranty. Bigger car- More $$ on insurance probably. KIAs lose value quickly. I love the way it looks/drives. Might last longer than the Yaris (bc of warranty?)
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Thank you all for your help. Well this post was in the queue while I car shopped. The Yaris' bumper was falling off and I couldn't fit in it. They gave me 4k for my trade in. I ended up getting the Kia Soul. Will update if anything breaks. haha.
