But I have taken care of it and the interior of my Jeep is almost like new and the exterior looks great and will almost look new once I get a new polisher so im pretty happy with it as long as it doesn't fall apart. Now if my credit was good... 2010 SRT Jeep or Challenger.... maybe even a Mustang GT they are making like 415HP these days and fairly cheap.

Re: After 5 years......

My payments were $563 a month for 5 years which sucked considering it was just a Laredo, I did get the v8, leather, and QT2 but still.....

Re: After 5 years......

Ouch...but if the vehicle fits, I say keep it. Only reason I traded in my GTO (which had been paid off for some time) was I truly needed something different and didn't want payments (to speak ok). This was a good compromise. Nice thing is these seem to hold up well if you take care of them. I am impressed at the condition of the WK I bought used @ 50k and 5 years old. Just gonna keep up with it and think I'm just gonna keep this one. I have a couple other cars, but one of them has to go and I think it's gonna be the chevelle Good part is that means lift and stuff for the Jeep and still having another car to play with (and keep the miles off each other)

Re: After 5 years......

Truthfully.. If you all can... go refinance. Rates are much better now.

Re: After 5 years......
