    Default Am i thinking crazy thoughts?

    ok guys i bought my vectra 3yrs ago and at the time it was a year and a half old (so its 4 and a half now) i have just got my statement of the finance left on it and i still have just under 2 yrs to go. the problem im thinking is it a good idea to try and sell it now use any money i have left plus a bit i have saved (2.5k) and buy a fun weekend car(i really only use it at the weekend as i have a company van to/from work and we have a 2nd car) keep the car another year then try and sell it or stick it out to the end? the idea of not having to pay any payments any more is quite appealing tbh. So what do u guys recon?

    keep it mate i dont think it would be worth selling tbh i have finance left on my car (3 years) and my car will be 6. but tbh i love the car and plan running it to the death lol ( prob 3.5 years time lol) if yo have savings why not just have a look and see what you can get

    Hang on to everything you have for now .... see how the financial world looks in 6 months time once we've all got used to higher VAT, higher fuel duty, higer everything else.

    ive done finance too, over 18 months and 2 years. Trouble is in 2 years a lot can change and you might want to change your car. I was counting down the months so never again.

    problem is when i got the car my previous car had been written off due to an accident and i only had 1k as a deposit and i wanted a large car as i was sure my previous large car im sure saved my life. i really dont want a thread of stick away from finace thread i just wonder is it worth keeping it? i guess its ok until next jan when the warranty deal i have runs out then im just worried if anything large breaks i might not want to/afford to fix it? also if i get a cheap car then i wont have the payments goingout. i can afford it tbh but should i?

    its worth keeping purely based on the fact that as soon as you walk into a dealers and they tell you how muchg they will give you for your car.......will it cover whats left on the finance thats outstandng?

    where as if you keep running it and your only using it a weekends your going to have a potentially very nice clean and tidy low milage car to sell when the finance is done and all of whats paid out comes to you
