Depends what you mean with buried. I got way more than I owed on it but it cost me 6K to drive it for 13 months. So way cheaper than renting a car LOL. Also a large chunk of that 6K was in taxes and 27K of that 33K I paid on the tacoma was transferred to the ford. Without pulling out the contract I think I was taxed $430 ish on the transaction. A lot of people that say sell your car private party and reap the rewards fail to realize in TX you are taxed on the difference of your trade and purchase not on the purchase price of the car like in California. So if your car is still worth a good chunk of change you are better off trading it in than selling it and paying the full tax on a new car. While still on the honeymoon with the ford I will say it was worth every bit over giving up the no balls and small cabin of the tacoma. I Tried hard to like it I did like it when I purchased it but with it getting the same or less than a truck with way more HP in MPG ratings and the cramped cabin. But then again I am biased to higher HP and torque things.
