I know some of us plan on keeping this forever but to those that dont. How long do you think you'll keep it until you move on to something newer and better?

Not long... i could see myself only keeping the car for 4-5 years until my finance rate is done.


After that i would prob just sell it.

Something like this. I'm thinking maybe 6 years. I'm keeping it until 100,000 miles. I bought an extended bumper to bumper warranty, so after that expires, I'm out!

Smart, play it safe and keep it within the warranty period. After that much miles and no warranty, there's a ton of major work to do.

Absolutely. The reason why I traded my previous car was because it had ~142k and the A/C compressor was starting to get loud. I don't have time or money to spend on repairs. After buying this car though, I'm pretty sure I'm going to start leasing.

have you looked into lease price vs finance?
Yep. Leasing, especially when it's a 0 down and 0 required at signing, always seems to win. It makes the most sense when you live close to all the places you go, since there aren't any high mileage leases. I couldn't trust myself this time haha

really can't go wrong with 0 down and 0 required especially for someone like yourself that doesn't travel far. at least with leasing you have the option to take over the lease to own. Can you see yourself keeping this car after lease?
