Article here. I agree with it - I was visiting a local Hyundai dealership, and some of the new vehicles had a $1,000 markup. It's nuts. It's also a shame because I was really hoping to get a car soon. Then again, I don't really need a car of my own yet, as my parents' 2008 Honda Odyssey works perfectly fine despite having over 181k miles on it, haha! Perhaps I'll take this time to do a bit more research. My folks and I think I'd be best with either a Hyundai Kona, a Subaru Crosstrek, or possibly a Mazda3. I'm not sure which trims I'd get any of these cars in, either, though we can definitely rule out the Kona N, haha! But seriously, I'm aiming for a new or used car that's about $24k at most, and RWD is (perhaps unfortunately) out of the question, although it feels like snow has becoming less and less common lately here in CT.
