>Of course during this time I also got a Jeep Grand Cherokee and I just went into contract on a house. I plan on having the last two credit cards/personal loans paid off by the beginning of next year when I will then turn my attention to paying off the car and my $30K student loan!

What was wrong with your Saturn? Why not keep it for a few more years, pay that off and your other debt, put extra money away so you wouldn't need a car loan at all when the time came for another car.

Question: Is a $26K jeep worth the equivalent of a $30K student loan? Education seems like a 'good debt', car = 'bad debt'

Just a thought.
