Lovely how ai makes up videos about truck announcements that never happened.
On the contrary, all the sub $20,000 cars are on their last year including the $16,000 Nissan Versa. In 2025 you better be able to pay at least $25,000 for the cheapest of cars.

I've always wondered why people of modest means purchase a new car in the first place?

I dated a girl once who bought not 1, but 2 brand new Chevy Aveos. She spent way more than I did on my Acura TSX. It didn't have AC. She'd drive around in a bikini in the summer.

Wonderful gal, but if I'm combining a bank account with someone, they've got to make good decisions on the big purchases. The underlying reason I broke up with her is that anyone could persuade her to do anything. Sounds fun, but nothing is without a cost.

Also, anyone willing to date a felon clearly makes poor decisions.

What annoys me is that advertising doesn't track the behavior of individuals. If they did, they will learn that I have never, not once, clicked an advertisement. Zero companies should be paying to advertise to me because it's a waste of their money.

I will click on them or let them run on YouTube so that they have to pay for the advertisement, with no intention of viewing the advertisement or buying what they're sellling.
