New car bug-aboo

To buy or not to buy: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to endure
The whims and chances of increasing miles
Or to take a plunge into increasing payments
And by signing give up? To wonder: to choose;
No more; and by choose to say we end
The heartache and the thousands of natural doubts
That flesh and future is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To wonder, to choose;
To choose, perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub...
