    Does anyone have an opinion on company cars? With the car allowance Is it better to get a shorter term loan? Buying used or new? Just wondering if anyone has any helpful hints. I've always had a company provided car until now. Thank you.

    I have always had a company car also. I just purchased mine on 4 year loan. I bought a used (2 years) off lease. It had ridiculously low mileage and I LOVE it! I could not be happier. I bought it used because of the amount of driving I will do and the areas in which I park in. It made no sense to me to buy it brand new. Good luck! It was so fun to shop for cars.

    I appreciate the feedback. I am looking at the same deal. Found a car with just under 30k miles that was a 2 year lease.

    Tesla SUV is an option if you pay the $2500 month upcharge

    I had it the opposite of you. Had to use my own car for calls but got car allowance. However, the pros of driving exactly what you want did not outweigh the cons of your odometer flashing before your eyes and the car losing 80% value in 2 years. Also, while you might be making a small monthly profit from the allowance and putting it aside for future repairs, today's repairs very quickly go into thousands and your car allowance does not cover. I just recently got a company car and the stress level has been drastically reduced.

    I am confused. Do you guys not get company vehicles? Why would you want to take out a loan on a car to do this job?

    Recruiter would not specify what the allowance is. What is the big secret? Is it that bad? Typical car allowance is around $700 a month plus $0.60 per mile. What is it there? Would be nice to know when determining what salary I am looking to get.

    Getting the company car is always
    the better deal.

    You get an allowance and it’s not a great deal unfortunately. I love my car but I am hemmoraging money. Miss my company car and gas card.

    You don’t get a gas card ?
    You pay for your own gas then
    submit for reimbursement ?
    That sucks
    Also wait till a tranny goes out,
    And new tires will be needed with
    all those miles going on your car,
    not to mention your car won’t be worth
    shit when you have 120,000 miles on it.
