    Trade in Value?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Curious to know if anybody has recently thought about unloading their FiSt and the experience they had. I have a 14 molten orange with 66k on the dash. Cloth seats, navigation, and sun roof, other than that the car is immaculate and hasn't seen snow. I was thinking about getting into a truck since I now commute less and would like to start tackling a few projects around the house. The dealer offered me an abysmal 6500... eventually they said they could go up to 7k. I bought the car a little over a year ago for around 15500 plus tax, title, and tags, so I currently owe around 11k. They wanted to tack on another 4k to the truck I looked at and I just got up and walked out when I heard their offer.

    Here's the truck https://www.jaguarwhiteplains.com/us...9fd2cce4f6.htm

    I will be posting my car in the classifieds in the coming days at 12500 obo, currently has a cobb intake, cobb ap w/stratified tune, boomba 50/50 bov adapter, and 16x7 rota grids.

    I think the mods hurt it. Just went today and was offered around 10k. Mine is a molten orange base 15. Stock and in above average condition with 73k on it. Original owner and no body work ever etc. Was gonna trade in on a new eco boost stang with performance package and sweet seat package but it kind of felt like a turd on wheels.

    I usually check 3 websites for values and average the price out. KBB.com will be highest as they are what the dealer uses and the dealers pay to use their service. You get the idea. Edmunds.com get prices from the prices paid at registration so more accurate representation of values. I also look at NADA.com. Use all three and you'll get an average picture of what you vehicle is truly worth. It's sad but they don't hold their value well. But I'm happy to keep mine...I love it!

    $18,000 for a 9 year old truck with a 100,000 miles that's been a redneck special. I don't have anything nice to say about it. You can fine better I'm sure.

    You overpaid for your fist. Guys are picking up base 18s for 17.5k NEW.

    I would say as a trade you might get 7500.

    If it was me I'd sell the car outright and not trade it in...as they will flip that car and sell it for 12k. As with the truck if you like it that much buy it....is it a certified Toyota though ? If not I'd ask the dealer if you can bring it to a Toyota dealer and have them do a full 100 plus point inspection on it just for peace of mind. If the dealer says NO ....Turn and RUN as there is something the dealer is hiding and they DO NOT want to you to find it. As I have worked at a dealership and independent garages it always pays to get a second opinion. Good luck!

    Small cars with manual transmissions have poor resale value. Its a fact of life or a saving grace. Depends on which side of transaction you are standing.

    Thanks for all the responses! At the time, I think I paid fair value for my car at 15500, it only had 34K miles on it, and molten orange was a must for me. I shopped around quite a bit in my area and it was one of the best I came in contact with. However, in my first year of ownership I put 30k miles on it, driving 150 miles a day. I also commented to the fact that it would be returned to stock upon trade-in so they appraised it with no after market parts. The truck was a 1 owner and meticulously kept from what I observed. I didn't have too much to argue with, and I have shopped around for trucks for the past few weeks. I guess I'll test the waters of private sale. It's not that I don't love this car cause I do, I was just hoping if I wanted to get out of the car scene and into something bigger I wouldn't have to struggle as much.
