Say you buy a car for $100k. You bought at a good discount off msrp so you're able to sell it 2 years later for $80k, and you lost $20k. But in NY you also paid $8,800 in tax bumping the cost of ownership up to $29k. That's a 50% increase in cost of ownership. It's ridiculous.
California also has horrendous DMV fees nowadays to add to the pile
