I purchased a Jeep in October 2005. Immediatly there was smaill problems. 1. 1 cluster bulb is out on dash 2. Tranny shutters from 25-0 stop. If i go past 25 its ok coming to a complete stop. 3. This thing is a pig on gas... 17 mpg 4. Purchased it as a 4x4 jeep, but turns out someone put the handle on it to control it but no front differential 5. Tires sucked ass so to fix these, I replaced the bulb and bought new tires. I have a warrenty service and I am too lazy to go get it checked out. So basically i am stuck in a situation here. I dont make great money by any means but i can hold my own with my paycheck. Right now i put 400 on the Jeep Every month without a problem. When my payments are 240 a month it helps out alot. So i have taken a small chunk out of what i owe. 12,500 - Base Price with taxes/tags/title 1400 - 100k full warrenty 500 - Tire warranty for life of vehicle I now owe 12,800 on it. So if i sell it the warranties are refundable. So what i owe is 10,900 for it. I would expect a trade in of about 8-9k so i am at a 2k loss. Would it be benifitial for me to trade this bitch in and get a new car, or be unsatisfied and keep it till i pay more down on it. Either way I take a loss here. I am just stuck on what to do. I am sure if i go to the dealership and let them know my story there is a possiblity of gettings a new car under a slight discount. But I am just not satisfied with my car. I am stuck between sliding around in snow in a Jeep until my pending doom or trading it in and taking a loss. What would you guys suggest. Oh and i have about.. 1600 cash i can play with, but i am not spending nearly that much on a car and insurance. I am looking to stay right around 300 for the car a month and insurance hoping for 200 or less a month. ( 5 tickets, 0 points) So i can still live comfortably. Discuss.
