But what you seem to be talking about is like buying high and selling low, which is why I asked how you felt about the car. A $2000 car might need a lot of work on it anyway.

The car has been very dependable. I like it to an extent but that extent stops because of a foolish (small f) choice I made in regards to not getting an automatic transmission. I do give it credit that probably because it is a manual transmission that it is likely to last longer. It's a good chance I'm going to sit tight on the car until it absolutely has to be replaced or I move into a higher paying job in the future that provides more disposable income to buy a higher priced used car.
