Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Would it be worth buying a new car, having a car payment, & full coverage insurance versus just buying a copy of what you already currently own with 150k less miles & already having the knowledge?  The only difference between my car & the other Grand Prix I'm looking into is:  Mine is paid for, Liability insurance, leather, sunroof, tinted windows, 150000mi less than what I currently have on my car.  My Mother thinks it would be a better idea I go out & buy a new car like a KIA, Hyundai, Nissan, Mitsubish, Honda, Toyota, Subaru, FIAT, MOPAR, GM, Ford, something with 0% financing &/or 10yr/100k warranty.  This 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr 3.8L I own I bought for $15000 in 2003 with 55k, now 12yrs later it has 242k & runs like a champ minus some rust & paint peeling, that's it.  I don't really want a car payment as my car has been paid for since 2009 & my insurance is only $38/mo liability.  I'm a tall guy & most of these better fuel economy cars don't have much for leg room or 30mpg.  It would be nice to get something with 0mi just I like what I already know the goods/bads of & this 3800 is by far the best motor I've ever owned.

even though I'm at 242k I'd like to see if I can get it to 300k & if at all possible just keep it for parts worst case scenario.
