to sell? or not?

ok, so here is my dilemma

i don't feel an emotional attachment to my car like i should and it has been almost a year

soooo.... i am thinking it may not be the right car for me

here is my question for you guys..
1. how crazy am i? and what do you think of an 04-06 wrangler?
2. how much do you think i could get for my car?? 07 3s 5-door touring w/ manual tranny, sunroof, 6 disc changer and 16000 miles

It's a car, you shouldn't have an emotional attachment to it.

The Wrangler is a gas guzzling, unsafe POS. But, if you love it.

You'd probably be disappointed with your resale. Seems many are getting new 08's at or below invoice and I've been reading that people are not pleased with what there being offered on trades at the moment.

Re: to sell? or not?

I would say don't sell it. An "emotional attachment"? This isn't your girlfriend here....Sorry, but thats just a dumb to get a new car and incur all the costs associated with it. I'd expect you to get around 15-16k for it. I would never want a Jeep vehicle.

It's an inanimate object. It's never good to have an emotional attachment to nonliving things.

I say I "love" my car but it's for practical reasons or maybe the pride in making it my own but it's really just car.

hmm I gave my new one a hug...

otherwise nope, I blame it for me being poor, as it uses gas and wants maintenance every 5k...

No way. Don't get me wrong, I take care of it like it's gold, but if for some reason it was totalled I would have no problem getting another brand new car and not "miss" my old one at all. It's just a car.

Re: to sell? or not?

hehe ... interesting thread. I never had an attachment to a car until my last MINI Cooper ... there was some character to it that I miss still.

heck, I am even thinking myself to trade in my 6 month old GT HAtch for the new Clubman as it now has more space (which was one of the main issues for trading in the old MC) ...

how much do you think for a 6 month old '08 with 6K miles on it?
