Default pulling my hair out... which truck.

so i recently my truck hit 92k miles and im paying $400 a month on it, i need to get rid of it before it hits 100k miles and takers a huge hit in value. so im looking for a new truck with a much lower APR and a lower monthly payment.

1. 2015 Nissan Frontier extra cab SV 4.0l V6 - 88 Miles for roughly $24900 out the door

or

2. 2015 Dodge Ram1500 regular cab 5.7L V8 - 2,012 miles for roughly $25900 out the door.

the frontier would have slightly lower payments, but is a midsize and is not very comfortable to me, but has a little more cab room.

the dodge is by far a better looking truck twice the engine and is more comfortable to me but the payments are a bit higher.


the Ram gets better gas mileage, and both trucks would make the payment im making now drop $40-$50 a month.

i owe $12,931 on my silverado still. nissan said they will get me free and clear of it, and dodge said they would give me $14,000 for it.


my GF thinks im making a bad choice with the ram but wont listen to my reasoning and i want to hear a non biased opinion froma 3rd party telling me im making the right or wrong decision.

I would personally get something a little older where someone else took a bigger hit on depreciation.

That being said it's up to you, but I've always been told that every 1,000$ difference is a 20$ difference on your monthly payment (rough estimate, of course it'll vary). So that's not much to me.

I think the frontier is ugly and small looking. So dodge ram > nissan frontier.

What's your silverado valued at? Be careful dealerships will try to tell you they'll give you $xxx amount for your vehicle only to add it onto your total value of the newer vehicle.

Why do you need to reason with your GF for a vehicle you're going to buy?

Well the Nissan is a v6, and the Dodge is a Dodge..

Just keep your Chevy. If you do regular scheduled maintenance and replace thing when they wear out, it'll run as long as you need it to.

Either of those trucks would be a downgrade, imo.

My 07 Silverado has 168k and still runs awesome.

I just change the oil. Only thing that's worn out was the wheel bearings, and I just replaced the whole hub assembly. Wasn't bad.

i cant look much older i have my father co signing to get me a better rate than i am spending now (13.5%) and the only way im going to get a rate low enough is to buy a new used vehicle, (14,15,16) one of my dads terms are also that its a certified pre owned so an issue doesnt arise and i lose interst in paying the monthly payments. my truck values at $13700 at fair.

my 2008 4.8 lt is a total piece of shit. it has 92k miles i have had an engine mount go bad (at 70k miles), my wiring for my brakes deteriorate, my transmission wines in first gear and i recently just learned i have low compression in a cylinder due to a lifter that has gone bad and my cam possibly could be damaged also. i went to a well trusted mechanic and he told me straight up it makes no sense to put the money i am into this truck that im paying so much for already.

dodge trucks are made cheap, if you take real good care and be careful your fine but they dent and break easy.

i have to humble myself and stay in a price range that makes sense while also getting certified pre owned.

I would say given the rest of the info you just posted ya i would get out from under that truck asap but also make sure you are gonna be comfortable and happy w your new purchase i personally would take the full size truck over the nissan but are you sure you will be happy in a single cab if that truck will meet all of your needs then go for it but i would definitely shop around dont just jump on the first one u see and if not just pay on it for a yr or 2 and trade it off for something you really want by then with the chevy paid off n good payment history on your new vehicle you should be able to get a good interest rate on your own by then just my opinion

From what I've seen the Nissan depreciates very quickly
When you can get a 07/08 Nissan for $10000 while the other trucks are still around 13-14k it makes resale that much better

If all that stuff is wrong with your truck why not try powertrain warranty?
