I made an adult decision yesterday. It sucks but I decided that as much as I WANT a new(er) car, I just should wait it out.
My current car is in good shape , and I still owe a bit on the loan. I was going to trade it in and get something newer. But all in all.. Keeping it is not a bad thing. I just put breaks in and had my oil changed. It has no 'major' problems.. it is almost 5 years old. Not too bad.. but this little voice in my head was telling me that I needed a new car.
I decided to keep my car, and pay it off as quick as possible. It is the smart thing to do, and save money towards a house instead.
Growing up stinks sometimes! But I am happy I have a good car and that I can pay it off now.
