Your points are well taken. I think many here came up with different priorities and therefore a different choice.jeff968 said:I feel a lot better paying $36K for a $39K vehicle then $35K for a $35K vehicle.
But it seems to be an oddity of human psychology that one feels better about paying more for a vehicle simply because of an arbitrary sticker price!! I cannot blame you - I think many or most people have this feeling but rationally it does not make sense. I guess we all assume that a $39K sticker means the car is worth $39K and somehow we get a deal by getting it for less. Maybe this is why you see items on sale at the grocery store "regularly $2.49, on sale for $2.40". In the end, hardly a big discount but it makes us feel better about the purchase. Anyway, enjoy the ML.
