In these uncertain times I am happy that both of my vehicles are paid off. My truck is so old I made the last payment on it twelve years ago. I paid my car off early nearly two years ago. It's nice not to have payments!

If you're making payments, how much longer do you have to go?

My vehicle was paid for when I drove it off the lot.

If I can't afford to pay for a vehicle up front, I don't buy it. My personal belief is I don't want to be making payments on a depreciating asset. To each his own. The one exception *might* be if I bought new & received 0% financing for several years (other peoples' money & all that); given that's unlikely to happen, I'll probably keep paying at time of acquisition.

Every vehicle I've bought in recent history is paid off when I drive it off the lot, and I drive most of them until they are towed off to salvage.
