My truck that I bought a little over 3 years ago? I just figured it out. Including the cost of the minor repairs I’ve done myself, it has averaged out to a cost of about $85.00 a month. Can't go wrong with a pickup. I didn't see any of those in that list. (It's running a little better now that it isn't as cold)
Years ago, I had a 79 LTD. Fully loaded. Nice car. With what I paid for it and the cost of the few repairs I did in the 8 years I had it. It averaged out to be about $19.00 a month.
I looked over the list.
Lincoln Town Car. Go figure, these newer ones are just a plastic attempt at a luxury automobile.
About half of the others were the little economy cracker box cars with the tiny little engines. I imagine most of their depreciation is from rubbing holes in the head liner with your hat and wearing out a 100 hp engine as if it had the power to get out on the highway.
The others were the foreign attempts at 4 wheel drive vehicles, the Suzuki's and the Isuzu's and such. Gutless, no ground clearance, lousy suspension, etc.
But hey!!! Leather seats and a CD player!
I'll stick with my Silverado.
"DITCH IT"???? Not a problem!!
Shoot, she'll go through any ditch, a creekbed, up the side of a hill, slinging mud straight up off of all 4 all day long! :smile_anim:
