With that mileage on a 300 you are paying about $840 a year in gas, compared to a corolla you would pay about $1648. This is assuming gas prices are $3 and that you would average 58mph on the 300 and and 32 mpg on the corolla.
Not to mention insurance savings, cost of a new corolla to begin with, as well as tax. Depreciation of a corolla compared to a 300.
I bought both a 2014 ninja 300 and a 2013 mazda 3 two months within each other.
The 300 was $7700 with a few aftermarket parts and the mazda was $17k
Insurance on the 300 was $35 a month and my car was $220 a month
I did 10k miles on my bike and car both in the first year of ownership.
I did 3 oil changes on the 300 and 2 on the car.
Changed both tires on the 300 for $320. Changed 2 tires on my car for about $450.
Windshield on my car cracked and needs replacing and that will be super expensive.
At the end of the day I wish I didn't buy a new car because I would have so much extra money.
