So, I am TREMENDOUSLY upside down on my 2015 Kia Optim Hybrid Ex (with every option, sticker just around 37). I also have 32k miles on it. I went to the dealership to talk trade in options and they pulled my credit report from 2 of the bureaus and noticed that while my credit union gave me a better rate, they're not even reporting. Put that model and # of miles into KBB and I think you get like $14,000 or $15,000 current vaue of the car while I owe almost double that paying $470 a month. They bought up that I should just voluntary surrender it. They made it sound much better than what I am reading about it now, still a repo, but at most it'd just **** up probably 1 of my bureaus. What do yall think? I mean I goofed big time here, I also took out the loan over 7 yrs to get my payments there no many down (and gave them my 06 Grand Prix). I joked about having gap insurance and "something" happening to the car and Meth didn't like that, so seems like my only options to pay Mercedes/BMW note for a Kia, which admittedly are extremely nice, feature filled, and reliable cars, their reputation just has to catch up, or just take that credit hit and get something that'll work better for me. I need an SUV. I saved up cash to get a cash SUV, used. Can free up that almost 5 bills a month. I am also a Government worker with a secret security clearance, you can have a few credit bumps and things here and there but too many affect that status so I'm weighing that as well. Sucks because I am so analytical most of the time with things, do all the research, read reviews, compare, etc and typically make such good decisions in my life but like the 3 ****** up ones I have made are the most damaging and long term.
