once your outta school and you gotta drive to work everyday and you need a reliable vehicle, and you cant worry about breaking your jeep offroading or keeping your jeep in the garage for weeks/months on end between doing mods.. it felt good knowing i have a backup vehicle thats mine and i dont have to share with my mom like i did with mine and hers 96 xj..

|bardb||Congrats Now either bank that monthly payment into savings or apply it towards another debt and you'll really make Dave proud.|

|kjeeper10||Paid my 01 off about 5 years ago. I will at some point finance a newer vehicle. After 5 years of a $430 payment I vowed never to buy a new vehicle again. IMO the worst investment ever. Now I gotta decide whether to buy a slightly used jeep or spend more on mine|

I bought my '01 Jeep 2 years ago and had a 6 year loan on it. Did that purposely so the payments would be lower and I could afford it even if something happened with my job, which it did as I've been off work for 11 months now with a bad back.
Paid it off 2 months ago already though, so it's all mine!!

All I have to say to Jim is congrats!

|doclouie||Great job, Dave Ramsey would be proud. There is something about not having debt hanging over your head that makes you feel so much better.|
|05-28-2011 12:16 AM|

Only Jeep I've ever owned!

|AirWick||Congrats on paying it off! I paid mine off as well and it feels so damn good to not have a car payment, don't it!?!|
|05-27-2011 11:17 PM|
Wow, reading this makes me feel lucky. I saved money since I was a little wee boy and then spent it all buying my jeep. but no payments! I probably will not own another vehicle for years and years. unless I end up with a cheap "eco" car as the OP mentioned, just for the sake of gas.
Congrats on being free of debt! (on the jeep at least)

|jameslee97206||I use an unsecured line of credit through my bank so I have a tittle and a jeep, but still owe...Does that count lol|

|dhamilton83||Still have a whooping 6 years|
|05-27-2011 10:30 PM|
|jiminmanjr||Oh!!! I did not buy the Jeep new! I bought it June 2006... It was three years old. I must have mistyped. Sorry for the confusion! I'm whooped from tornado cleanup - my town got hit earlier this week.|

It took you 8 years to pay it off?
Hey its your money but you're 35 years old; somebody should have taught you the golden rule... if you can't afford to pay a car off in 4 years either buy a cheaper car or put more money down. At 35 you should be 25% of the way to paying off your house not an 8 year old Jeep. Consider it a lesson learned but don't repeat it.

Congratulations on paying off the Jeep!
Sadly, I have never paid off any vehicle that I financed. I always change my mind and sell/trade well before the loan period is complete. I intend to change that with my current Jeep, though, and I am planning for it to be the first financed vehicle which I will actually pay off. <fingers crossed>
|05-27-2011 04:09 PM|
An eight-year automotive loan? Holy shnikey's!
Mine was a five-year. I only paid it off a few weeks early.
Next step - I got my new headlights from Quadratec, and those will go on this weekend. I want to take the milk jugs off, paint the fender flares and use my detailing gift certificate to make it look like new!
|05-27-2011 04:01 PM|
You can get 8 year payment plans. I guess it works better for some?
|05-27-2011 03:56 PM|
Now that payment you don't have anymore... extra money in the pocket...
*cough* mods *cough*

|sahara13||I was going to say 8 years of payments!! Did you figure how much you paid in interest those 8 years??|
|05-27-2011 03:31 PM|
|DevilDogDoc||4 more payments on mine and it's well, mine!! But dude 8 years of payments? Really?|

The Jeep is ALL MINE!
After 17 years... beater cars, sporty cars, stick shifts and automatics... I have my 2003 Jeep Wrangler. Purchased in 2003.
And today, I paid this mutha off!
I've not owned a vehicle outright since I graduated from high school in 1994, and bought a 1990 Chevy Corsica before starting college. It was to be an "economical car," according to my dad. I hated that ugly grey thing with the red interior.
But all is good. At 35 I can say the Jeep is mine. Dave Ramsey, watch out... I hope to be calling you in about two years.
I just needed to brag and share my excitement. Return to normal, boys and girls!
