I was in that boat a 12 years ago and decided to buy "new". I actually bought a previous years model that was still on the lot with 12k in rebates. I have been trading in every 2-3 years since and buying those older still on the lot new vehicles with the rebates. I average about 3k per year total to drive new by doing this. As long as I can keep it going, I feel like it is a pretty good deal to stay in a new truck. I only put about 10k miles per year so when I trade, I get a premium.I still have a 2007 Tundra with 130k miles, I know it's time to get a new truck but the 2023 will cost me around 63k... I don't mind buying used but a 2021 Tundra is basically the same as my 2007. I'm not sure what to do.
