yay what?

fyi: most people are upside down on their cars.  getting royally screwed or zero down is not a pre-requisite.

shrug, I haven't had a car payment in years.  If people are continually upside down they're doing something wrong.

I never said it was a stupid idea.  I just said he wouldn't be walking away with cash.

Walking away with cash isn't the point; getting rid of a car payment on a car he can't afford is.

We'd need to know how much Carmax would give him for the car (or how much he could sell it for private-party) before we decide selling it is a stupid idea, imo.  I've never been upside down on a car I've owned, I don't see how thats possible unless you got royally screwed on a new-car deal, put 0-down, and missed payments.

47
Either way he's got a car he can't afford.  He needs to get rid of it.  If he's upside down it'll probably just become more so as he goes along.  Dump it.

Makes sense.  I get to live at home with the wife & kids while I'm in school, so count on seeing me at campus 10-11 hours a day so I can study..  :-X

I can see that.  You'd think people would want to live in this area, maybe not.  That close to downtown seems like it'd be pretty desirable.

Buying is always better than renting, buying = get your money back afterwards, renting = throwing money in a hole.  If you can find some condo to buy that puts your payments on par with a nice apartment on a 30-year note, do it - you can sell it after school to someone with similar financial sense and get all your money back less the interest.
