If the numbers are telling you it's sort of a wash, buy the new one. If they are telling you keeping it is the better option but you still want one, flip the bird at those numbers and buy it anyway.
+1. If you are not stressing over 5k every two years and like the car than its not a big deal.

My brother and I have prob. almost the same income. His taste in everything is just a little bit above mine.

He drive a Lexus and a E-class mercedes, plus a Highlander Hybrid for the winter.

For me it is a Ford F150 Super crew pickup for winter and hauling around and a Honda Accord Coupe for spring and summer.

To him, driving those cars is important, for me it's a total waste. I'll drive
mine till the wheels almost come off, he buy a new one, thinking that that is the only time he can afford one.
