Who pays for a new car ever? Fortunately there are many who do, otherwise I'd be spending way more than I care to on transportation.

The most I've spent on a vehicle to date is $17k (for the Acura), and I considered that an extravagance and the most I'd pay for a vehicle.

I've been considering a used Spark EV, but if replacement batteries are $22k, that represents a huge potential for the car to become a paper weight, even if it does have a more robust battery conditioning system.
