Trade in at only 2 years?

So our S-1 here, personnel officer, is looking at getting into a new truck. He currently has a 2006 Chevy Duramax and wants to trade it in for another. After as much prodding that I could do in order to sway him towards a PSD, he still wants a Duramax. His is only 2 years old with about 36,000 miles on it. Why you ask...as did I. It's becasue of the warrenty. The current vehicle only has/had a 35k warrenty on it; where the new one has a 100k. I told him that he needs to keep his current pickup and just get the extended warrenty which he says he can get on any of his vehicles for $2500. "Sir, if you have absolute faith in the Chev, then you wouldn't need a warrenty and that you could just keep the one you have now." But oh no! He wants a new one. So he test drives the 08...likes it alot; however, at $53,000 he won't get it. So what does he decide on? A 2007 with the old body style...same as he has now, only with less miles and a 100k warrenty. How much is he saving by doing this? only $88 bucks a month for the next 84 months. Crazyness I tell you. Just had to get that off my chest. He also bought his son and wife each a new Honda. Oh and by the way...he's going to retire in 6 months...just don't get it...ok, I'll get off my now.

You know...all of you just said exactly what I told him...except for you RRonning, but I'll tell him Monday. His family just bought a coffee shop and a very expensive boat...now 2 cars and a truck...are you freakin kidding me? And you're going to retire in 6 months???
