great news on the payoff! interestingly enough, i also sent in my last auto payment this past month. great feeling, both having no payment and being able to SAVE that additional money for a rainy day/vehicle repair/replacement fund.

i'm rockin' a 2008 camry 4 cylinder and it gets about 30 mpg. great vehicle that until now has required minimal maintenance. just tires and at 70K it is about ready for new brake pads and if my research is correct, a timing belt as well.

i see these expenses as MUCH better than "rewarding" myself with a new car [payment]. solid vehicle that should last at LEAST another 4 years. *knock knock*

who hasn't had the best luck with any of his previous vehicles after they were paid off--let's hope this one is different
