Do You Really Need a New Car? | #025

1998 Ford Explorer

Do you really need a new car? When your car is getting up in age and starts having issues, do you dump it or fix it? There’s a lot that goes into making that decision. On this week’s show we discussed the pros and cons and also talked about the car buying process.

We talked a lot about making repairs. You may want to check out a previous episode, You Should Know How To Do This: Basic Automotive Repair and Maintenance | Episode 004

The featured image above is my 1998 Ford Explorer shortly after I bought it in the fall of 2010. It had just under 100k miles with a purchase price of under $4k. As of August 2019 it’s still running fantastic at 186k miles.
