Vehicle Payments

For those of you who don't own your Liberty outright and are paying monthly payments. How often are you paying more than the minimum amount? I've always had positive equity in my vehicle, before buying the Liberty.

When I traded in my Patriot I had 50% equity on the trade in value when I bought my Liberty. I bought an extended warranty as well when I bought my Liberty just in case there was an unknown problem down the road. Just to give myself a few years worth of peace and mind.

I probably didn't get the best deal on my Liberty, but I wanted something with low mileage since I plan to keep it a long time. So after buying the warranty and the depreciation of the vehicle. I now owe exactly what the trade in value is. I could make a couple thousand back if I sold privately. Which I don't plan to do, but incase something should change where I need a different vehicle.

Also I don't want to get to a point where I have negative equity in the Jeep.

So i've started making extra payments each month on top of the monthly payment. If I were to keep this up every month I'd have it paid off in 3.5 years.

I pay extra anytime I can. My reasoning is because its saves me money on interest.

When I bought the KJ in the fall of 04 they set the payments up for 6 years!!!! Paid it off in 24 months, they kept sending me letters that I was paid up 15-18-24 months ahead and no payments needed , of course they wanted that interest $$$$ to keep rolling in

Yeah but you're still paying something. The only way I'm not paying as fast as I can is at 0%

Hyundai was offering 0% for 72 months, during Christmas time. My wife was looking at a veloster.

Haven't really been able to afford anything but the minimum.
$243 every 5th of the month.
Might be able to put down a bit more once this semester is over.

Yeah a month or so after buying my KJ brand new at 6% interest the bank dropped my interest to 0%(deploying to Iraq) and I opted to keep my payments the same,paid it off in 3 years instead of 6.Nice thing was the bank kept my interest at 0% even after returning state side,though just to deploy again in 4 months.

I bought mine in Aug 2011 and just paid it off last month. I was tired of having the interest even though I write the majority of the interest off as a business expense for my consulting company. I wanted to get this one paid off so I can go ahead and buy a Genesis Coupe.

My payments were $375
