Rolling in My Hooptie

Help me decide how to finance my vehicle purchases. I need to get two cars for my family. Could be new, could be used. I want both of these cars to have very high safety ratings. Everything else doesn't really matter. I could pay cash for two new cars, but that just seems stupid to do on a depreciating asset. Is the best course of action to find two used, yet reasonably new cars and pay cash? What if we like having new cars? Should we just lease two new vehicles? I have read that the best course of action is to buy a used car and drive it into the ground. That's great, but what if I leave the country again in 5 years. And do I really want to be driving around in a Hooptie in ten years. How do I approach the whole buy new / used, lease issue.

If you can't trust a car salesman, who can you trust?

A local Dodge dealership has been running ads for $15,000 cash back on new trucks. They make it a point to point out that it does not get added on to the price of the vehicle (i.e. you don't buy a $30k truck and finance $45k to get the cash, I'm assuming). So what's the catch? How is it possible to get a $30k truck for $15k? I'd love for someone to explain the slight-of-hand that my cynicism dictates must be taking place here...
