Thinking......to sell or not to sell

So ive come to a point in my life, dont really no what to do. 2 jobs, mortgage, and 2 cars.

2 jobs, and a mortgage. Maybe a credit card or two with a balance higher than you would like.

What would be your purpose in getting rid of the Focus? Paying down debt? Always a good idea. You just have to decide whether it's a good idea for you at this time.

If you can't afford the mods you want to do on the Focus, maybe it's time to let it go. Don't sell it to a dealer though. maximize your return by selling it yourself. It's an ST - It will sell - easy.

Maybe you should take the money from the Focus and put it in the bank.

We don't have enough information to help you out.

Are there other stakeholders in this decision?

Why not sell the Sonata?

There are dozens of other things to think about as well.

Yeah, it sounds like you should sell the sonata since you said it yourself that its boring. Drive something YOU want to drive every day. Unless the wife wont let you sell the sonata.

Nah i bought the sonata for 1 reason 35 mpg and since i drive 400 miles a week to and from work it just makes sense, plus i owe more than its worth. The focus is just a nice day car if that makes sense?? I just had visions of once i got another vehicle i could do anything to the focus, but gas prices and parts prices outta my reach. Plus im starting to realize the dream of owning a Bad A$$ focus and a sti are never gonna happen.....unless i hit the lottery!!
