Letter I Received From a Local Kia Dealer




Bahahahaha



Cash 4 Clunkers? Really? Pretty sure my GXP is worth more than any new Kia.

Its obviously a mass email without a lot of thought as to the resale, but the program itself isn't a bad idea.

If i were them I would not have chose to use "clunkers" as it's almost insulting (like in the case of the G8), and instead should have been strictly based on just improving your fuel efficiency.

Re: Letter I Received From a Local Kia Dealer

I got one from the dealer I bought the car from. The letter said 21500. This was based on 50k miles. The letter said trade in maybe more on conditions after visual inspection. They have a couple of nice new and used stangs.....wife said no two door.......

Saw a documentary on how Cash for Clunkers was a big fail. All the cars that were traded in were destroyed instead of being sold to junk yards to recycle parts for resale.

I get these letters too but I'm not giving up my GT. Damn that.

Stangs are indeed fun, but they are not so good at accommodating the Shrek-types among us (like me).

Just got a similar letter from my dealer saying they really need my car!

And they offered a whopping $23k for it!

I don't think so, Tim!
