Debating to sell.....Please help.

So, I am in the military and getting ready to move to Hawaii for 3 years. The Army will only ship one vehicle and we decided to ship the car because of it's fuel economy. So, the plan is that the Jeep is going to be at the in-laws and used as our vehicle whenever we decide to visit home (not going to be much). The in laws said they would take care of it for us to keep it up until we get back. This planned sounded perfect because it's paid off and I don't want another car payment when I get back. She only has 89,000 miles on her and the only thing that I had to do was replace the water pump and routine maintenance. Here recently I am really debating to sell her because she is going to be sitting so much and I can get whatever I want when we get back, but that equals another car payment plus we want to buy a house as well. So, I guess the question is should I keep or should I sell from a financial stand point? Money really isn't an issue but want to make the smartest decision for our future in purchasing a house. I am still youngish so I would like the more experienced people to share there advice. I keep telling myself to keep her until she stops running and that's the more logical option. Please share you thoughts and advice so I can stop going back and forth. Thank you.

I would say sell the Jeep. Cars are a depreciating asset and you won't get as much later as you can now. Take the sale money and put it into some financial product which will grow until you're ready to cash it out to purchase a good, late model used car. Thanks for your service and enjoy Hawaii. Cheers.

If you were to be deployed for 6 mos to a year, I'd say keep it. Three years is a long time for a vecicle to sit, even though your inlaws are taking care of it. I wouldn't want to put that on them, or anyone, for that matter. I'd sell it, especially since money will not be an issue upon arrival. If you still had the itch for an XK, you can always go back. I'd look for a 2010, from the south, less rust!

Thanks for the insight. I will definitely look into selling it. It just sucks because I only got to enjoy her lifted for 7 months lol. I was deployed and the wife took care of getting it ready for me to come home. I originally wanted a truck (Tundra) but the wife said it was too big so we got the Jeep. So, I might look into getting one of those when we get back. Thanks again for helping me put things into perspective.
