Help on Auto Loan vs. Student loan/Mortgage

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Finance (Not Investing) - www.bogleheads.org
Hello all,

Just want to see if my financial decision making is rational. Any help would be appreciated

Some financial facts:

- I have a $175K mortgage at 4% fixed

- I have a $53K student loan at 6.55%

My combined salary w/ my wife is $155K.

I am planning to purchase a lease buyout for a 2010 Honda Accord. The Honda has around 35K miles and is in good condition. The value according to Blue Book is around $12.5K and the cost to purchase the Honda is around $12.2K.

I have around $14K in savings now so I could purchase the Honda if I wanted to. However, would it make sense for me to purchase an used auto loan, for example, through Penn Fed? They have a used auto loan for 2.49% / 60 month.
