Jay Might Be Selling My Car

I'm not sure what Jay wants to do, for a replacement car. Yet he mentioned trading this 2009 Buick Le Crosse in for a different car. I'd much rather keep it, but that won't happen. When he drove down south in July 2021, Jay put 9,000 additional miles on the car. Yes, that's certainly a lot of driving in two weeks time. He drove from Florida to Alabama twice! Then, he drove 1,200 miles back to Michigan to get home. I guess he's right, we probably need to trade it in before it gives out. What will happen? I'm not sure yet. Photo: Mine

Thanks, I'd probably like to get a Jeep compass, but I'm not real sure.

It sounds like it got a lot of use. So, I wouldn't be too concerned.

If its your car and you like it and want to keep it, then you should be able to do that. Hugs from me.

These decisions should be made, as a couple.

@kobesbuddy Exactly. Neither one should get higher say than the other. It's your vehicle. What would Jay say if you decided to get rid of something that belonged to him?

@just4him Jay has been through 34 vehicles in 31 years of marriage. Not good. Creating another debt wouldn't be wise, we can't afford it living on Social Security.

All those miles add up. We are in the market for a new car, but will wait the chip shortage out. We want a certain car.

I’m only worried about the car shortage right now. From what I’ve read, dealers are taking orders for cars weeks in advance, and they aren’t giving deals AT ALL. I’m so thankful I got my new car when I did (in the middle of the pandemic). They were begging people to buy cars, so I got a sticker priced $31K car for $17,900. (PS: my “new car” has nearly 37,000 miles on it thanks to the trip out west, so I can’t complain about high mileage on anyone’s car. )

We have never purchased a NEW car, only used vehicles. I'd love to be able to buy one, without ending up with monthly payments. This one, we own it.

@kobesbuddy — I know that “used cars” are much safer to buy now (with all the tests and the computerization) than they were when I was trying to buy my first car in the 70s. And new cars can be lemons. Good luck in getting a “newer” vehicle!

It seems that the car has been used too much. But if it's okay in the performance you can keep it.

Kharla, this is your car, you need to take the decision together. If you want to keep the car, keep it.

When I stood my ground Jay was shocked, I don't usually do this. He has no business selling my car, unless it's a mutual agreement.

@kobesbuddy It is the same with my husband and I. He has the habit that I never discuss what he wants to do, but there are things that we must agree together.

Better to trade in before it gives away. Jay has a wise suggestion. You will definitely like your new car. It's always exciting to have something new.

@kobesbuddy I know that feeling.. I had the same feeling when my husband sold my old car and got me new one. It was quite old and the maintenance issues started popping up. Husband felt that it's high time. I get emotional attachment with my cars. Husband keeps changing his after every few years, not me.

I hope that you are able to find a new car, the lots here are next to empty for new models as they have halted production due to the parts shortage. Used cars are selling for higher then their value as a result. We had planned to purchase a new vehicle in 2022, but with the markets as they are currently, there are many who cannot buy what they want, and that will place a strain on the market next year. We will take the wait and see approach since we are not in dire straits to replace either vehicle.

Jay bought a used truck about four months ago. The price had to be negotiated, before he signed the paperwork.
