Jash We own our 4x4. My work car is lease for tax purposes.

petergunn For 20 years we bought used, still had a payment.

in 2014 we bought new because of wife’s commute, reason was we couldn’t find a used Jeep for what we thought was reasonable, most on the lot were lease vehicles that had max options and only priced marginally less than a stripped down new.

For a second vehicle used is fine that’ll be driven only locally whereas work vehicle sees freeway driving.

I saved half the cost of my truck by buying it with 25,100 miles on it.

Semore Butts Car payment? Yeah, that's how much per month my car pays me to drive it.

My 2002 Chevy pays me $350 for every month I drive it!!!!!

Jdog67 I drive a 2012 Honda Civic, payment free for about six years now. 185,000 miles and still going strong.

Justme11 Good song!

But I like CARZ better by Sir Mixalot.

Can't link it here because of language. Don't want to twist them Panties.

John_Auberry I’m a member of the debt free club. Except a mattress. When I had surgery my wife but a adjustable bed. It’s was zero percent financing and zero cash discount. So in 3 more months that bed will be mine.

Hilltopper Pffft, I never knew what a car note was. Always paid cash for cheap second hand vehicles and been relatively lucky .

evilwhitey I drive my wife's old car. She has a note on her 2017 Pilot, but it's honestly paid for itself 3x over as a carrot to motivate her to work more. She can make as much or little as she wants so I'm cool with her having motivation, it's worked out for me.

For me personally, I pretty much work as much as possible and don't need any external motivators so I'm cool with driving her hand me down, paid for turd until the wheels fall off.

Nomad-max note free since 2008 on 2 cars

Prepper_Ed My first truck I financed through my credit union, my second I had 0% financing from Ford. I paid cash for the truck I drive now and intend to do so for every vehicle I buy in the future. I keep my trucks about 10 years before buying a new one.

Nomad, 2nd I really like the ending.
(Only thing I'd borrow money for would be real estate or medical care. Never had a car note.)
