Tentatively looking around for a new car

My confidence in my car is rather shaken up, so if you guys are selling a car, or know of a trustworthy friend, let me know. I'm looking for something that's around 2 years old. And is reliable.

I'm also investigating new cars, but I really don't want such a big car payment :( And those cars depreciate in a year so much. But at this point I'm wondering if the psychological assurance is worth $10,000.

I'm going to use my minor in psychology to say that I've mild PTSD right now.

For a few weeks after I got rear-ended I would look with paranoia at my rear-view mirror whenever I stopped at a light. I would tense up terribly, expecting to get hit.

Eventually it went away.

There's almost certainly nothing wrong with your car that can't be fixed more cheaply by repair than replace. You're having a normal emotional reaction, and sometimes the right thing to do is to ignore it and let cool logic prevail.

Cheers,
