Well, the one peice of advice I can give you is to get what YOU want, and not let anyone make the decision for you. I put off buying a Jeep because my ex hated them, and after we broke up that was the first thing I bought, and let me tell you I wish I had never listened to her. I had a blast with my Jeeps (I had 7 at different times) and really missed out on alot. If youre making the payment, go get one. You should get a pretty decent trade-in on that Nissan too. Good luck!

If it is going to be yours, and you are making the payments, get what you want. Would he not get a car HE really wanted if YOU didn't want it? Uh-huh, thought so.

If you were married it might be different, but you aren't and it isn't.

Life's too short. If you want a box and can swing it, go for it. :D

You parents will at least have to cosign for you, because your still a minor you cant legally enter into a contract so be VERY nice to dad this fathers day.

As far as a trade-in on your other car you will probably be better off selling it to a private party yourself and use the money for a down payment.

Other than that just read the final paperwork carefully and ask about anything you dont understand. The salesperson should be able to clearly explain all parts of the contract for you.

Good luck we all hope you get a new box too. :D

you should go out to Kelly Blue Book www.kbb.com , first before you go into the dealer and see what your "trade in Value" is on your Nissan. Print it off and take it with you. Be honest when filling out the info on your car, kbb will give you a good idea of what they will offer you. Don't let them low ball you though. which ever of your parents is the better at "dealing", take that parent with you. Don't be afraid to get up and walk out if you're not hearing what you want to hear.

That's why, for my car I have a Cobalt instead of a tc, the dealer low balled my stang and I took my business to a dealer that would give me what I wanted. Still hope to get the tc one day though... or maybe another xb, not sure on that one yet :D

You will truly fall in love with the xb when you have one of your own! :)

Ditch the dude, and pick up a box....uhm...wow, that sounds like I'm telling you to be a lesbian.....but if you are, thats cool......uhm...yeah...get the box.


I was 18 when I bought mine, get a job and a cosigner, and you are golden.

Me: 0 down-6yrs-318.60/mo-6%intrest. (I was desperate, and I could only afford a 6yr payment, ok?)
