    I could very well be wrong, but I am kind of getting that vibe like we are in the sweetspot of high trade in values and prices starting to finally hover or even come down a hair in new vehicles. Trucks anyways. If I would have traded my truck in against a new truck like it was two years ago I think I would have ended up costing more overall compared to what I am at today. At the very worst even to it.

    Lead times on desirable cars is ridiculous still...

    Wife was talking about how she likes cheap F150 lease, but can't justify paying full price for another truck or similar when it's up next year - Especially not at these rates (we are poor students). Was looking at the Toyota hybrids (Rav/Highlander) since they accomplish 90% of her needs, but Toyta bud says delivery on hybrids is 12 months & impossible on a Prime, lol.

    Any lead time over about 6 months may as well be "no thanks" for me. I'm thinking that a lot of hybrid and Plug-in hybrid vehicles will get better lead times slowly over the next year. They are really desirable for a lot of families, including mine. Would love to drive a Rav4 Prime.

    lol good luck. Any desirable Hybrid model will be 12month+ with added market adjustment. This likely wont change for a couple years. The backlog for those units are already over a year long. Remember, they are still taking orders from new customer, so manufacturers have to catch up to the back logs AND accelerate production to catch up. that's not happening soon.

    I'm thinking it's going to be 2025 until we get back to any levels of normalcy and that's providing we don't have anymore COVID strands wreaking havoc on the world. I thought last year was worse than the year before but this year is proving to be worse than last year as things really aren't improving much at all as the supply chains are arguably more backed up now as it's more than just semiconductors as plastics, aluminum, etc are in short supply.

    I put my name down on a Sienna prime at multiple dealerships if they ever make one. Plan early, don’t sell till you’re guaranteed a vehicle. Made that mistake this year and driving a 03 Sentra for 3 months sucked balls.

    Ha ha ha. I drove a 2020 RAV4 for two months waiting for my new car and I thought that sucked balls.

    the era of cars being objects of interest is quickly coming to a close.

    I thought that as well but we are all getting old and I have always believed minivans > SUV's when you have multiple kids. They may not be cool but they are the best utility vehicle.

    My desire to mod cars died about 5 years ago. Still have an eye for nicer cars but even that is sorta falling away. Next purchase will probably just be a boring nice SUV which makes me sad inside.

    Why? At least you still seem to get enjoyment out of it all.

    Beats not enjoying anything.

    It's an amazing time to be a motorcycle fan. There's like 20 bikes I want, and barely any cars.

    True but the bank account sure could use a break and since I have no self-control, losing interest all together is my best chance. Haha.

    I love bikes, always have but just can't get into them (more than I already am) simply due to not having anyone to ride with. So far this season I've taken mine out once. The some nice days that end up coming, the cars end up getting used so the bike is not being used as a regular commuter, so need to find a couple of people to go on fun rides with.

    Same here, but I still get out. Of course, I've been without a bike for a few years, so I'm making up for lost time.
