Thread: Trade in or wait?

  1. #1

    Question Trade in or wait?

    I'll make this post short so you guys can give me an honest response.

    I have a 2016 Ram 1500, lease ends next October (2019).

    I can buy out my lease for $2300 which is about 1/2 the cost remaining ($4600 will be payed by next october)

    Do I take the hit and trade it in on a new JLUR?

    Convince me that trading it in is a stupid idea.. lol

    LOL!! I wish I could convince you that taking the hit is a bad idea but being that you're already considering it, it'd be hard not to go through with it now. The only thing I would suggest is that you take a hard look at your finances and make an HONEST determination as to whether or not you can afford to do it.

    Wayoflife is spot on. Iím currently without a Wrangler, and I want one really bad. Iím not going to do anything that isnít smart financially, though. It will be sometime next year.

    Definitely assess your own personal financial situation and be sure to not dig a regrettable hole just for instant gratification. Remember it's okay to want. For me the wait makes the gratification that much sweeter.

    So for $2300 you can get out of your dodge 1500 & into a new jeep? What color are you getting? Rubicon? When are you getting it?

    Wayolife, yea I can afford it; i'm an engineer and make a decent salary. I just hate wasting money you know? I'm not really sure its wasting money though because I would be putting the remaining $2300 towards the vehicle I truly want. Plus, my girlfriend thinks I drive an old man truck.

    Wrong, $2300 gets me outta the truck. I would still need to fork over some cash for the JLUR. I really like the sting gray, rubicon, asap.

    Try swap-a-lease. Ally allows exchanging the lease to another person for them to take over at same pmt and terms.
