    At the end of this year (possibly sooner), I will be leasing a new SUV or mid-size truck. But it won't be a Ford since I've been test driving Chevy's and GMC's.

    It will be 13 years with my SUV and she is falling apart slowly but surely. I want to sell her before she gets to 200,000 miles too.

    I would like to wait until the end of this year so I can maybe get a good deal on a 2017 since 2018 will be coming out soon.

    I will still come check in every so often but I've already made up my mind on switching to either a Chevy or GMC. I am going to test drive a few SUVs and trucks next month so I can decide which one I really want.

    I'm going to miss her because of the size of it. Another reason why I am torn between an SUV or a truck. I still want something as big as she is but not too big.


    I'm afraid she will soon be Found On Road Dead if I don't trade her in. Hopefully, I can get some cash for her to go towards my leased vehicle. :(

    Sometimes you just gotta move on. Congrats on the decision.

    How come you are deciding on a lease rather then owning?
