购车笔记 - Mazda cx-5

随着在美国生活得越来越久,对车的需求也越来越大,比如带小狗去上training课程、去Costco买生活用品、旅游、与朋友聚会等等。之所以在美国呆了两年多才开始真正开始这件事,是因为一方面自己还是新手司机(开车上路总担心会不小心刮蹭,亦或者自己对道路状况的不熟悉可能会导致的安全问题),另一方面是自己不喜欢开车(租车行也好,Zipcar租车也好,总是开起来不舒服)。目前我开过的车有:

  • Dodge Charger
  • Kia Soul
  • Honda HR-V
  • Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • Honda Civic
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Mitsubishi Outlander
  • Mazda CX-5

我其实挺喜欢开轿车的,因为重心低并且方向操控感更好,但是空间太小,所以忽略掉了这个选择。SUV我之前是一直不喜欢的,直到有次偶然在Zipcar上租到了Mazda CX-5。驾驶体验特别好,这可能就是一见钟情吧哈哈哈。

现在是2022/01/05,在去年年末的时候汽车芯片突然短缺再加上长期的疫情影响,导致车价突增,但是我不想再拖这一件事了,而且看了一下history pricing,涨幅在5000刀左右,在可以接受的范围。没错,本人是心甘情愿的韭菜。

这篇笔记将会记录买车的全过程。

新车 or 二手车?

由于价格涨幅的原因,新车与二手车价格一起上升,二手车甚至与新车的价格差不多,所以我计划直接买一台新车。至于车型,因为现在是mazda cx-5 2022款即将发布的日子,索性就锁定到最新款。同时我也感觉新款车辆的起始价不会太高,抢一下应该还是可以的。

买新车要做好的一个心理准备是它会跌价得厉害。所以一般来说只有长期持有才会买新车。在5-6年之内不考虑换车。
