Are you in the market for a new car?  Before you spend a ton of money on a new vehicle that will lose the majority of its worth in the first year, check out one of these dependable used vehicles made in 2015.  Your wallet and retirement account will thank you!If you are familiar with my blog, you know how I feel about car loans.  If not, check it out here: 5 Reasons Car Loans Are A Bad Idea. Cars lose value extremely quickly and vehicle loans are a plague to your monthly financial situation.  I highly recommend purchasing a used vehicle (in cash) over a new one.  Used vehicles can be just as reliable as new ones and cost a fraction of the price!  J.D.
