And I dont buy new, find a good used truck with low miles, something in the 3-4 year old range. And drive it for 10+ years.


Mostly pay cash. In the event I do finance I do the same as above.

My previous truck I had for 12 years and rode it to the ground.
Yep...my truck is a tool, to get me from point A to point B, and haul/pull what I need from point to point. I try to get 200k+ miles before even worrying about buying something else, and thats usually every decade or so. And I get a plain Jane truck, without all the bells and whistles, I have no desire for sunroof, power seats, seat warmers, leather, etc

Now my wife on the other hand, she gets what she wants this time around she wanted a Jeep. We spent waaaaaay too much on a lift, after market wheels/tires, accessories, etc but she is the much better half of our marriage, and I want her to have what she desires

I don't know what some of yall do for a living, but are you hiring?

I would have to say that on average, 8 out of 10 blue collar families cant drop cash on the table or afford a payment on a sub 4 yr note. Here's what I do, I get the most vehicle I can get for the least amount of money possible. Its that simple.

100%! Negotiate a price. Then negotiate terms. Itís absolutely not true that ďmake upĒ for low financing is baked into the purchase price. Now maybe if you go in there and the first thing you say is ďI want 0% financingĒ or ďI want my payment to be $688Ē. But thatís just dumb.

Do whatever works for you and makes you happy. I've never had a car payment. I drive a 2008 model.

My payment goes to my land. My land brings me much more happiness than a shiny new truck!

I basically go into it with wanting to keep my note less than $650 and use trade in and cash to get my note where I want it for 5 years.

For example if I buy a 80k truck and they give me 45k for mine I put that down plus 15 to 20k and finance the rest.

Pretty accurate. Buying anything thatís worth less than you paid for it, two hours after paying for it, is never a good deal. So then you have to consider the difference as a form of entertainment I guess. Some people are entertained by new vehicles.

I have a number in my head I'm willing to spend, an interest rate I'm willing to pay, and a number of months I'm willing to pay it. Then I do some online shopping to know what my expectations should be in a vehicle. Then I generally do lots of haggling over weeks to get what I'm after. I never buy new, and drive for years. My current truck is 13 years old with 275k, hoping to get 500k out of it. I bought it 2 yrs old for 32k, had the window sticker in glovebox with a 52k tag on it. It's been pd off for 9 years.

I have thought that way all my life and have always bought used. Until my last truck, the prices of low mileage used trucks is insane. It was just a few thousand more to get a new one, and have to admit, I enjoyed getting a new one.

Itís all in the equity of your current vehicle. If you start off small, pay it off, trade it in a few years later for a little upgrade, driver it for a few years, trade it in for an upgrade, eventually, you have enough equity to buy a 50-60k truck and not break the bank. My Tundra currently has about $33K in equity. I could go trade it in for a brand new one and walk out the door only owing about $15K. If someone on the road sees me in my new Tundra with new tags, the general consensus is ďI wonder what kind of payment that guy hasĒ. When really, itís probably less than theirs lol.

Default How do you pay for your truck?

Negotiate price. The method of payment should have no bearing on the price.

You guys that pay cash I just donít understand. Assume you pay $50k cash for a truck and for the sake of argument you were able to buy it for $2k cheaper that way.

Even at a meager rate of 4% on $50k in 5 years youíre looking at almost $61k if you left your cash in your investment vehicle.

So you saved $2k up front and lost $11k over 5 years. Youíre $9k in the red. That doesnít make sense.

Iíll borrow every penny I can at 0-1%. If crap goes down I still have my cash (that Iíve been making money on) to pay it off.

Itís math fellas. The other benefit is if crap really gets bad I have a vehicle that might get repossessed but I still have my $50k in the bank. Yourís canít get repoíd but you donít have $50k in the bank. I can buy a $2500 POS to get me around. Iím still ahead.

....always use someone elseís money if yourís make more.

At 1.24% I will gladly pay $900 over the course of 5 years to keep the amount my truck cost in liquid.

I plan on driving it 15 years minimum barring something catastrophic.

I bought it "used" at 7,500 mi. The dealership made an error in the online price and then took an addition $1,500 off before they caught the error. But they kept their word after we had a handshake. (Meador Dodge in FW). It was a former dealership loaner.

This saved me $5,000 and got a very slightly used Ram Lone Star 5.7L with everything I wanted and then some at @ 27,500. I financed all of it due to the interest I would owe. Payment is around $550 a month and will be up in 10 months.

me and the wife do have car payments but one is zero interest through a family member and one is 2.9%.. Both loans are almost paid off and we will be driving our cars for many years to come.. we bought my wifes new but mine used.. In my opinion if you cant make a 50% down payment there is zero reason to buy a new car these days..

My truck is a 2010, been paid off since 2014. I have continued paying the truck note to myself since it has been paid off, covers repairs, maintenance, pays for the lease and a vacation usually. I shopped new trucks a while back and decided against it. I’ll just fix mine when it breaks. I have a commuter vehicle and a Jeep when I get tired of the commuter. I keep the wife in a new vehicle, but she’s a business owner so we can cover the cost. Truck prices are beyond ridiculous. You never come out ahead no matter what kind of deal you get.

Youíre probably right I just hate having a bunch of money going out monthly.

Iíd like to buy a new Can Am 1000 and Can Am 4 wheeler once I build my shop and I donít want to finance any of it. Not financing my pool either. Iíd rather pay for my shop, pool, SXS, 4 wheeler all cash so I sleep better at night. I still keep a couple years of bills in my checking and savings between my wife and my accounts.

Oh wow. You seem pretty confident in your negotiation skills. Letís see you put your money where your mouth is and see how much you can get off a new truck.

Iím worried about the big shot banker from Aledo TX. 🤣

I pay about $414 a month for mine, I was a first time buyer and went through my bank .
And got approved for a loan. Now I have about 6 months left and it will be on mine.
So maybe if you're on good terms with your bank maybe go and chat with them.

I buy it with money then drive it until the beach eats it to death. Tow it to the junk yard and buy another.

Usually buy last year's model that's still sitting on the lot, and I'm trading in something they really want and can sell.

I also negotiate for a living, and buy when the market is good for a buyer.

Right now, I'm unloading my extra vehicles because of the used car market and not buying a new one.

I think there’s a lot that don’t want to admit they finance the heck out of most of the stuff they own lol!

I finance at a low rate. Pay off early. I hate payments. I can’t pay cash for a newer vehicle. Kudus to y’all that can!

The fact that you googled my town, looked up my profession and would challenge someone to a truck buying contest is what should have you worried. Ha ha ha. Weird.
