 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: Should I sell my car?

I'd say sell it. It sounds like you really don't need two cars so you might as well save on the costs. If something happens to your one car you can either replace it (make a car fund out of the money you sell the other one for, for example) or just rent one or go without until the one car is fixed....

It's a little late to ask, since I already put up an ad, but my wife and I work from home and have been living just fine using only one of our two cars for two years. We've been toying with the idea of selling one of them for a while and finally decided to do it, but of course there are those naggin...

I truly suggest your next step is to read up a little on investing so you have a better idea of what your goals are, and how best to achieve them. I really like the Diehards website, and they've put up a great "getting started" section. http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6211 ...

I did, however, keep my WAMU account and I linked it up, so that I'd have a "brick and mortar" place in case E*Trade flopped. Plus, WaMu's online savings account is holding steady for now at 4.25% APY. I find this is well worth the .15% difference for the convenience of brick & mortar...

I drive a Toyota Echo, which I just love. It's a small car, but they designed it to have great leg room in the front and back seats. It gets almost 40 mpg, and fits in any parking space. I bought it new for $12,500. Not too many frills, but it's great, reliable transportation that I plan on keeping ...

Yesterday their 2nd attempt at payment was kicked back and now my account is back in the black. All my charges have cleared (other bill pay's, atm's, debit card). I've been charged $20 by the bank...and ING is still showing the payment as a credit. Nice to see that loan almost paid off even if it's...

It doesn't sound like I'd be getting much at all, so my vote is to stick it in my bathroom remodel fund, but it won't make a very big dent.

I was looking to open an online brokerage account and wanted to know what you think is a good place to start. I have heard Etrade, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade, Sharebuilder, or Zecco. What do you think? Also having little investing knowledge, what investing book do you recommend reading first. I am a ...

I've called ING and once everything settles then my checking account bank, myself, and ING will have a 3-way conference call in order to straighten it all out. I've been a customer of ING since 2001 with never any problem - I'm pretty confident that they'll give me a break on this. Last night the p...

I'm not admitting to anything, but apparently an extra zero got added onto a pymt and now several thousands of dollars are processing through my checking account as I type. :oops: I assume it will be taken out of our overdraft protection and our checking balance will then be zip, zero, zilch? I've ...

100% stock isn't that bad for a 26 year old but 100% S&P500 may be too narrow of a focus. Total Stock Market would cover more equities but you still are missing International. Unfortunately, Vanguard does not offer a Global Stock index for the U.S. market (they do have it for the overseas marke...
