I've lurking around the board for a while now -- Saturn of Manassas (Northern VA) said my new SKY rolled off the truck last night!
I will be picking it up on Wed.
Question for everyone on the board. This is my first new car so I have very little experience. I have a question about trade-ins.
I drive a '03 Nissan Xterra Special Edition (bright yellow!). I had a few bites leading up to the Sky, but ultimately no one wanted to purchase it. I am left to trade it in.
How do I get the most for my trade in?
It's in excellent shape, rare color, and only 38,000 miles (pretty good for an '03). I bought it used from CarMax for $23,000. I only owe $15,000 on it now.
Do you suggest taking it in to CarMax, or trading it in at the Saturn Dealership? Or should I do both and takes which ever pays more? Do you think the Saturn Dealership will offer me as much as CarMax would?
Also, any tips on negotiating a trade in value? Am I even in a postion to negotiate?
sorry for asking so many questions! Thanks in advance!
