Depend on your budget, the kind of car you're looking for, and how long you plan to keep the car. Used can be good but, make sure you do all your homework before you buy it. You don't want to end up with a lemon. New is good too, but that shit depreciates like a mofo soon as you roll off the lot, but these days they also have good warranty/maintenance plans on the cars. Good luck with whatever you decide to go with.
