Also depends what type of car. Minivans are not usually being rented by abusive teenagers or otherwise people 'who drive hard'. Minivans are generally rented by people with a decent size family, that care about driving carefully, and don't want to put the other occupants (ie his family) at risk by driving like a meshuganah.
Camry, so it's not a fun car per se but also isn't necessarily a family vehicle

Does it make a huge difference if the car is still under bumper to bumper warranty that can hopefully be extended for $?

Any reason to stay away from buying a used car that used to be a rental?

It's a hard call. If you get a good Toyota will outlast the sonata most probably on but how can you know what you are getting?

When I was doing my calculations I added in that a used car will likely need brakes and tires soon. So your costs are closer together.

If you are interested in the sport there aren't that many left.
Actually I'm interested in the eco and there a few, not many, left

I'm not familiar with resale values but if you are planning on putting on a lot of miles and driving it to the ground,:
Hyundai has a 10 year-100K warranty. However, if you service it at dealer, there is no mileage limit on the powertrain. My FIL  bought a new '13 Sonata and puts on (at least) 1000 miles a week (I believe he's well over 300K miles) He has gotten a new engine and transmission for free since he uses the dealer for service.
That definitely isn't indicated by any terms anywhere and I would be hesitant to rely on it

Months later I'm still chewing over this. Anyone qualified to give an opinion on what would be a better long term value, new 17 sonata for about 15k pre tax or used 16 Camry with about 40k miles for 13.5k pre tax? Putting at least 500 miles/wk on the car and driving it till it's worth 1k or less

Spoke to a Rov. Don't want to write his name outright, but he is a Posek, very outspoken, and grandson of R' Avigdor M. Zt'l. He told me that he didn't look into details of this election, but in general, his grandfather holds not to vote for a liberal even if it's better for the community. Obviously, each election could have it's own specific ramifications, and perhaps a Rov who did study this election should be contacted. My point is just that it's not so simple.
That was well known as Rav Miller's view on this matter. Others disagree. It's definitely not simple, as you said
