  • Well I had a 2007 Equinox that I was paying $450 a month, I always round up to the nearest dollar. We traded that in on a 2008 Elantra and we pay $351 a month, I don't regreat buying the car but I sometimes wish I would have bought used.

  • I have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous, and we pay $627 a month on it. Thankfully it will be paid off January 2011, so that will be nice. I do not regret buying a nice car, I do regret buying a Rendezvous! The KBB value of it right now is not anywhere NEAR what we owe on it, and that is 4 years after buying it!

  • We have a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan that's fully loaded. We pay $475/month. I don't regret buying a nice car. With 4 young children I need something that's reliable and doesn't leave me stranded.

  • My car is $351 and DH (SUV) is $340. Both will be paid off this spring.

    We don't have super nice cars. My car is 4 years old and DH's is 8 years old. We bought mine new and his used. We have higher payments, but shorter loan terms. (4 1/2 years on my car and 2 years on DH's car)

  • We have one car and an SUV. The car is paid off (we paid in cash for that one) and the SUV's payment is $119 each month. We still have two years left to pay it all off.

  • We just bought a van and paid cash for it- No payments. We do however pay about $150 a month for DH's car.
