Used car or New car ?

I drive a pretty old car with tons of things going wrong with it already. I don't drive my daughter around in it due to me not feeling like its reliable. So I'm saving up money to purchase a car but I'm not sure if I should get a new car that is fresh and I know has nothing wrong with it, or if I should look into getting a used car.. any feedback, moms?

    I like Kim Haiduke's take. I too have had a used car and a new car--we sold my used car to get my new car, and it had some variable issues that we never were able to solve. Personally, I would go new because someone gave up a used car for some reason, and you'll never really get to know why...but you may find out the hard way.

      We've always bought used because that's what we could afford. Before we got our 2000 Ford Expedition we were talking about a new car but practicality and needing a farm vehicle made us choose the Expedition.

      I agree with Kim though that many dealers are offering 0% financing and little or no down payment. The no payment was at the end of the year but there might be some still offering it.
