Default let me stir up the big truck small truck new truck old truck arugement some more

I can stir up the small pickup guys and the old pickup guys in one post. I just traded my "OLD" 2015 Silverado for a NEW 2017! The young guy I deal with at the chev garage called me and said there really in need of used trucks and he could cut me the deal of a lifetime on a new one. Trading my old z71 for a new Z71 cost me about . With the rebates and the 0 percent financing my loan pay off date stayed the same and my payment is only 50 bucks more a month for a total of 6k difference in price. Well worth that as I'm getting a warrantee again (my bumper to bumper was about to expire) New tires (end of this summer id have to replace them), new shocks brakes, wiper blades, Well new everything. Big increase in resale value to boot. Just the increase in resale value was more then the 6k.

here it is

I have a 2014 Ram. I like it alot but kinda wish my dealer made me a deal like that. The local Honda dealers have been circling like vultures trying to buy our 2012 Odyssey minivan. Seems to be an increase of young parents wanting to buy used vans in our area.

Thanks, Dinny

My '05 Jeep Wrangler now has 201K on it, I'll have to replace it at some point but I like not having car payments right now. It enables me to buy more important things like guns :-)

Wink Old truck/New Truck

Lloyd, It works both ways. Either trade every two years...or...keep it 'til she dies. Up until I retired I had a company truck and a personal truck. Of course you know how much the personal truck got driven. It was a "keep her 'til she die" and still is, but my company had a policy to trade every three years, that is until myself and one of our accountants showed 'em on paper that it was beneficial to trade sooner...every two years. My 'ol 2004 F-150 FX4 and I are gonna see who lives longest...hope it comes to a tie.
Big truck - Little truck. Well...never had a little one, so I just won't even go there.
My yours bring you great service and much happiness.

Have a 1966 F100 and a 2006 first gen Tundra so I don't consider a 2015 anything old.

Same with the Crown Vics, the owner of our local Ford dealer has been after me to sell ours to him for a long time now.
Other than that intake manifold recall its been a truly great car. Vics have a heart of gold. The last of the age of the great rear wheel drive sedans.

gave my 2000 tj to the granddaughter last year and bought a 15 2 door jk. It is so much nicer then the tj that its hard to call them both jeeps. If you like your 05 you will love the new ones. Just stick to a 2013 or newer. The 2011 and before had the 3.8 and its kind of an oil burning dud and the switch to the better 3.6 happened in 12 but the 12s had head problems. comparing my new one to my 2000 is about like comparing the 2000 to a ww2 army jeep!

I keep every vehicle I buy for 12 to 15 years, unless (like almost all Fords), they start falling apart after 125,000 miles. My current Nissan Pathfinder is a 2003. It runs great. It has never once failed to start or broken down. It costs me about $300 a year in non-critical repairs. Nissan always has the parts and always fixes it perfectly. My personal property taxes run about $55 a year. Since I am retired, I only drive around 7,500 miles a year now.

If you love big trucks, big monthly payments, high personal property taxes, and high insurance rates, then by all means, go buy a new big truck. It is good for the economy.
