That’s what they are offering. Of course it would mean a new 5 year loan. I’ve been treating a car payment like a Netflix payment for the last few years so a smaller one would be easier to deal with. Yes I know I wouldn’t own it for a while. But I just got a new job 7 months ago that is economy proof.If I could get a new car for less than I'm paying for my old car, I would be trading it. Trust your gut. tom.
Taking out more debt when the world appears to be slowly (until quickly) coming apart seems like a really bad idea.I can buy a new car and get a cheaper payment for only a couple years more. Seems worth it for the warranty. I’d be trading in a Subaru for another. Mine has 120K. WhT say you? I know what you will say already but talk me out of a new car.
It’s great for around town and might be okay for trips but it’s getting where it will need a full suspension rebuild. I wouldn’t go into the desert with it. I like it a lot so I am torn, hence the question. Drop 2-3K into a car with 120K miles or just get a different horse. I bet a new one would take me into retirement.We aren't payment buyers by any means, but my wife and I are both at peace with the fact that we will always have a car payment-Most probably for my wife's car. It is what it is... I'll probably pay off our home and still have a car payment...That said, I'd say go for it. If you don't trust your outback with the mileage, the peace of mind is worth the new loan as far as I'm concerned. Hell, you should be able to get a rate close to 0%, so the loan should also be cheap.
Only you can solve this situation. tom. :cowboy:It’s great for around town and might be okay for trips but it’s getting where it will need a full suspension rebuild.

I’d love to buy a brand new 1988 Accord. Honestly my biggest reason not to is the loss of power going to a 4 cyl engine. I know they have come a long way but it is the biggest hitch.That’s just it, Subaru’s have always filled a niche. I drove Accords when I provided my own vehicle. For the money, they were bullet proof.
