So mostly due to my own error the transmission on my 2014 Silverado went out Friday. Estimates to fix are between 3500 and 4700. It’s not covered by any warranty so I am stuck. I am roughly 5k ahead on the loan versus what dealer trade maybe. Talking to my neighbor he suggested i trade in, get a new truck and start back at square one with a loan. He said he worked for a dealership and said the new tranny may or may not have trouble down the road. What would you do?
A.Pay for the fix and move hopeful mo other issues arise?
B. Trade it for a new vehicle around the same payment but resetting the clock on the loan?
Thanks for the advice
