What should I do with my car? Part THREE

It has been fun hearing everyone's thoughts about what Jenn and I should do about our 10 year old car that has been failing routinely and helping my mechanic friends achieve financial freedom!

I do want to remind everyone that I did try to replace my car, but the deal fell through!

So with all of the problems, all of the frustrations of the old Purdue car, we have decided to replace her.

She was replaced last Tuesday with a SUV that is able to run over the old car without the driver even noticing.

God gave us an incredible deal!

So the saga of the old car is over.  She is replaced.

And, yes, Steve_Sr1 (see his comment below that post), I will be changing the oil routinely and checking the oil regularly.  Thanks for the reminder!

    SUV…hope you increase your gas budget! lol! Glad to hear that you guys are safe in a new ride. In all seriousness, a safe care is a must. I had a dear friend die in a car accident that could have been prevented if the shocks had been good on the car! And with the “life happens” that I am praying for, ya gotta all be safe!

    Hey Joe,

    I have taken your financial freedom course and loved it. I received a lot of great advice.

    The new car situation!…YIKES sounds like a big problem.
    For many years I drove a 1990 Honda Accord. Currently it has 267,000 miles on it and is still going strong. When I got married my husband decided to buy me a 2007 Honda Accord. What I would do now not to have that monthly car payment. Sounds like you have already figured out your car dilemma. Good luck to you and your new car!
    Thanks for all the hard work you put into NewSpring.
