Hi everyone,
I love my Sky, but I have made a mistake. I bought this car to drive to work (40 miles one way). I used to drive an Avalanche and traded due to loving the design and using the gas savings excuse to convince myself that it was smart. I'm a big guy and the car just isn't comfortable to me driving the distance I drive each day. I miss the comfort and room of my Avalanche and I'm going to get another one.
My question is what kind of trade value would my car have now? I can't find anything on it because it's too new. Should I sell on E-bay?
It's loaded but with polished wheels and has 2k miles.
Any help would be appreciated.

How much do you want for it, and all teh details. I know two people who are looking. Might be able to save you the e-bay fees.

Depends on your sitiation

My dealer said they would give me what I paid for it. I paid cash so i would have to sell it at a premium for a used car to cover the tax hit.
If you paid cash and trade in the only taxed amount will be the difference between trade and new. So if my redline is 3-4 grand over my base that is the part I pay tax on. Tax in my county is 6.75. So you can easily figure what is best for you.

Call the dept of Revenue for the state, they should be able to tell you the sales tax law's on car's being traded.

I Just pretraded my Mysterious Solstice against the GXP and my dealer is giving me min. 26,200.00 ( which is what I paid minus Sales Tax ) or more for it. They put it in the paper for a big event this weekend and will give me more if they get more. If he get's 27,000.00 he's giving me the 27,000.00 in trade. I wanted to pretrade before the 2007 come out. And by trading I get the Sales tax advantage here in Ct. Because I traded my Jeep for 12,000.00 which I would of lost if I sold it out right.

But I also have the performance exhaust and the Tonneau cover on it, but pretty much loaded.

And don't forget if you sell it out right it will probably cost you between 400.00 to 500.00 in advertising and ebay fee's.
