For example, our firm represented many 100 million net real estate developers before and after the real estate crash. They went from extremely wealthy to fighting off bank creditors over night. My partners and I were amazed how these developers could be so highly leveraged and actually sleep well at night. Debt and uncertainty really did not bother them; actually, they thrived on it. They would buy now. The rule oriented conservative, such as myself, would wait. Uncertainty is avoided if possible. Saving several thousands of dollars now would not out weigh the stress caused by the uncertainty.

Uncertainty, that is the key word. Anyways, you might as well enjoy yourself. Although money is the root of all evil; evil spelled backwards is live.

As a follow-up to what @sn_85 said, I agree with much of his sentiment.

Opportunity cost... what you choose to do with your money in these times may define your future.

Maybe the car can wait, maybe it can't... but the market won't wait for you.

My last new car, which was 14 years ago, still has it's new car smell. At least that what I think it is.

Oh man, are you me?

I was planning on waiting till the end of the year to hopefully get a 2020 OR, but with everything that happening, I am keeping my eye out for better deals if they do arise now. Specially if I can find an 18 TRD Pro Calvary Blue, (wishful thinking!) But getting a new car was supposed to happen at the end of the year. After I move into my new apartment and after I get a dog!

My employment is fine, (and hopefully will be), I do have money in savings for a hefty down payment, and savings in case I do lose my job to last me a few months. I think I'm just gonna keep an eye out and wait.

Best of luck!

opportunity cost for your future; invest now and be aggressive. Did this back in 08/09 and came out very well. I'll be doing the same for my kids; I have their college paid for already, and now its just to create a fund for them.
