This is my first new car, so I'm not sure how its going to go, it may be the most wonderful experience ever, or it may be awful. I have owned 3 used vehicles so far, and 2 out of the 3 I have had problems with. Fiat owns Chrysler, and a whole bunch of other car companies, so their dealership maintenance and work should be pretty fair priced. Another great thing is when you need maintenance done, they will come get your car for you and leave you a rental for the day then bring your car back, that is really nice.
The only cons I see to buy a new car is you have a payment every month and the car depreciates, but then you have a warranty, a brand spankin new car that you get to choose exactly what you want, and you know how it has been drive in the past.
Like you said, I really don't have a preference between used and new, I think some vehicles are okay to buy used like trucks and especially subarus
I think its mostly a gambling game when you buy used cars, you may get lucky and have no problems, our you may end up paying double the cars value in repairs. Truth be told, I will probably by my fair of new and used vehicles in my coming life, thats if I don't become a homeless bum
I just saw your edit: Thanks man! I think i am more excited about the car than my fiance is
