I could also see selling right now if you don’t need that car and can wait it out until pricing more normalizes.

what if it doesn't though?

i think Shawn1112 Shawn1112 said he's gonna drive a work vehicle he has, i really think it seems like it's most people selling 2nd or 3rd vehicles too :rofl:

@Great White Drake i think said he's gonna wait and buy a truck at some point
Im going to buy a used Hoe and pay cash. Bank my payments until I make my next impulse buy. Will drive my Sprinter until deal is closed on my 21 Hoe.

Having the cash and leasing a new car is the way to go at the moment, once the market settles down, offload the lease to vroom or Carvana and get that dadf150 going!
If I didn’t put so many damn miles on my vehicles. I’d lease something really nice.

You’re right, I wasn’t clear on timeline. There are short term solutions to the chip shortage but it’s not gonna make a big dent until end of year or into 2022. Current crazy prices could also be because demand is so high right now from consumers putting off buying in 2020 paired with tax refunds and stimmies hitting bank accounts. Spring is usually a big time for used car sales anyway. So there might be some relief into the summer/fall.

it's just crazy to see 4 year old HD diesel trucks for sale listed for what i know they were selling for new :rofl:
I took in a 2020 xl crew Godzilla motor 3000 miles and mmr was 49,500 which is controlled by carvana and vroom now. Msrp was $50900 when néw it’s just stupid for used to be that high. I can’t justify putting 49k in it when I can sell a new one for cheaper if I wanted too.

Does the new one have incentives?

One of my buddies has had an order in to GM for a 2500 HD for 2-3 months now. He's got a very particular truck that he wants (2500 diesel black, double cab, standard bed) and he can't find one locally and they won't build him one. I've known him for going on 17 years now and he's only ever owned black Silverado's and he just bought a camper and needs the 2500 HD to haul it around. I found him a red or white one, he wants black. LOL
