I have a 2005 Nissan Frontier King Cab with 24,965 miles on it. We also have a 2012 Subaru Forester with 600 miles and a 2001 Saturn with 66,000 miles on it. There are only two drivers in the house. We will be having a second child this May and will not be able to carry both kids in the truck for the next two to four years. The number of years will be determined by the answers we get from the local police and fire department about using a booster seat in the passenger seat of a truck. The first two year the passenger seat is unusable with a rear facing car seat.
When I do the math to keep the truck insured, licensed and maintained for the next four years it comes to the equivalent of 6 new truck payments. To me it makes sense to just keep the truck, but my wife goes on about the truck being a driveway ordainment and rotting in the driveway. She would like to sell the truck and buy new Frontier Crew Cab. My general feeling is that I will not be able to sell it for the value that I feel it is worth.
What does the community think should I try to sell it or keep it?
