Default I hate car payments!!!

Ugh, I feel sick tonight, we bought a car, and it has been long time since we have had car payments. I keep looking at the car and thinking about how many cruises we could have had for the price of one car.
Do any of you have car payments and hate it too?

Very much so. I used to have no car payments and now I do. Cars are so expensive in many ways. Cost at purchase, fuel, insurance, service and repairs, parking fees, etc.

We just payed off my car and will pay of Robins car next year. I don't purchase a new car till the fix it bills for old ones approach what could be construed as a car payment.

My car is paid off but Mark's isn't... and as soon as it is we will have to get me a new one since mine is slowly on its way out... that is a bummer.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

just released a new mercury mountaineer for my wife --her third one -- and i car payment only went up 13.00 for a lot more equipment -------we are lucky in the fact that she owns her own business and the company pays ---so we are again lucky that the car payment doesnt cut into cruising or she would have to take the bus

I haven't had a car payment since 1985 when I paid off my new car I purchased in 1981 when I graduated from college. At that time, and with my lack of credit history, the interest rate was a whopping 22%. I bought a car for $8500 and paid $13,000 worth of payments. That soured me on payments.

Regards,
Thomas
