I currently have a 2005 Camry with 160k miles. Does it make sense to get another 2005 Camry with like 30k miles or less on it? I mean given that I have gotten my current car to 160k, perhaps the second car of the same model and year will have all the same problems that the other car did, not much. I would keep my first car sot hat I would have two identical cars. I would drive the car with less miles on it most of the time, and the car with the most miles on it around town for short drives. I see some benefits in having two identical cars. If one gets into an accident, it wouldn’t be worth much and probably wouldn’t repair it. However I could use it as a parts car. Like I could take the alternator on Car A and put it on Car B. Or lets say I get into an accident with the car with less miles on it and I need a new door. I can take the door of Car A and put it on Car B.
If I like my current car, and I come across an identical car with a lot less miles, than wouldn’t it make sense to just get another one?
