i haven't had a car payment in almost 10 yrs and don't miss it one bit. it's just a car. a good house at a good deal is really the only thing worth financing (that and a college/masters degree if your career requires it).
though i've been in a similar situation, leased/financed a car that i really wanted but (for a luxury item) probably shouldn't have done it. you could say i got it out of my system, compared to others who perpetually finance and trade in every few years. good times.
