Anyone here drive a car costing more than you make annually?

I know the most popular car in the US is the Ford F-150. New, with the four door option, is about 60 grand. Tell me how or why you made such a dumb decision

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

    It depends on how much you use it imo. I'm 30 and have never owned a car because I never needed it. I took the bus to school and work. Now I work at home. I go to the grocery store once a week, so there's no point in me buying a $30k car for that. Ubers are infinitely cheaper for me since I only go to the store, a restaurant, or to the park.

    If you're someone who needs that truck for every day commuting, chauffeuring around your family, hauling stuff, etc. then it's worth it. I just literally have no use for a car and it would be a major waste of money for me.

    People think they need trucks but then never actually use them for what they were designed for except maybe once a year. It's so silly and just some stupid status symbol. My current car is a 2018 CRV. It cost about a third of my yearly salary. It was purchased to replace my beloved Highlander hybrid that was totaled by one small mouse. A mouse took up residence and chewed through the seat belts. The labor involved in cleaning out the shit was more than the car was worth so insurance totaled it. I miss that car so much but new ones are costly. This happened during the pandemic and my options were extremely limited. But I got lucky and found my CRV that was clearly owned by someone who never drove as it barely had 20k miles and still under warranty. It's a good family car and gets the job done. But I miss those heated seats.

    Taking my lunch in a 2001 Nissan altima. Just a crap 2k car that I'm reasonably sure I can upsell for 2.5k for a better crap car at the end of the season.

    I drive a 2013 Hyundai. Bought early this year, I overpaid for a used car. Base price was 7k, took it up to 10k with insurance and me forgetting that I could negotiate.

    Absolutely not buying a 60k car. That's about my yearly salary.

    I own a 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage. I bought it in 2021 for seven grand. Paid it off in four months. I hope to keep this car for a very long time and have no intention of replacing it unless the engine dies. I really don't see the point in buying a car that costs as much as a house down payment. XD

    Me. I got a 2022 Toyota, in 2021. 24K miles on it but I hope it lasts me a good while. And it is almost paid off. 20 years from now! 200K miles hopefully! I religiously get its oil changed every 5,000 miles.
