I've spent the past 3.5 years paying off a car that I've come to hate.

Today, I'm done! Paid off the remaining balance and it's MINE!

Yeah, my brewing spending went up right around the time my car payments ended, and pretty much cancelled out the savings. But regardless, at least now I have more beer.

Feels good, no car payment. Now, start sticking half of that payment away in a fund for maintence and repairs. It will come in very handy when you have a $1,500 repair bill in the next year or so.

I hate to be the cold water, but you ought to go ahead and put the other half of that old payment aside so that you don't have a payment at all next time.

Yup...it works well. Eventually you pay 1/2 of a new car in cash....then 3/4 then, all of it.

Buy quality cars and replace them only when necessary.

I paid off my old silverado in 3.5 years. I ended up trading it in on the last payment and Got a 2007 Silverado.

My payments stayed the same and now I have a brand new truck. But several years of paying left to go.
