Do some major damage with that money in another fashion.
We bought ours new because we expected to get 10+ years out of it, if you plan on buying a car every 5 years or get bored with a car fast then your right, go used.
If you go used I would jump up a series, trick is finding a car only a few years old that was maintained properly.
