G8 GT trade in for another G8 GT?
I'm looking for comments on a trade I'm thinking about doing.
History: We have been buying Pontiac cars since 1993, first one was a SSEI and owned multiple models of Pontiacs My wife is the primary driver & users the vehicle for daily commuting. We put around 20k miles on each year.
I have a 2009 Liquid Red GT with Sunroof 63k miles. This past summer the brakes & tires were replaced. The vehicle needs some TLC on the paint, the front hood & bumper needs painting as well as the rear bumper. Numerous of scratches and dings as well.
At the dealer tday when getting an oil change on my GMC The owner showed me a 2009 liquid Red GT with Sunroof & 19 inch premium tires
Here is the deal...My wife doesn't not want another car & wants to keep her GT for another 5 years.
Retail price 26,750 Trade in 13,500 Trade payoff 11,750
Trade equity 1,750
I have 19 payments of 593 left.
New Deal 60 months 3.3% $483 per month 110 less per month
Car is certified pre owned KBB shows sale price of 26.8k and trade value of 16.4k
The deal is not a great deal however we get a nearly new car for less payments per month & extend a use of a GT for another 5 years.
The dealer will also swap the tires & wheels from my GT to the purchased one as they as 2 months old. Plus a get a vehicle that I don't have to worry about maint costs on a 70k plus mileage car.
Thoughts? I believe I can get the purchase price down another 1.5K?
Thanks for your help PIC of NEW car enclosed.
