Trade in value
Has anyone traded in a 2013 v6 premium? I think I want to get rid of this car before it becomes a huge money pit now that the warranty is up. Unfortunately I've had a lot of issues with it and I know I won't find a buyer on craigslist with so much cash on hand. I kind of want a truck but I don't think I'm going to find anything I want that isn't insanely priced.

Anyone that has traded a similar car, what can I expect? I've actually never traded a car in before so any tips would be appreciated.

Run it through all of the on-line tools and take the lowest number; that's probably about what a dealer will give you on trade-in. Generally "Black Book" gives the lowest numbers. You can ignore most of the mods because they don't count.

You'd be far better off parting it out. None of your mods will add any value. Once it's back to stock, take it to carmax and get a quote from them (which is good for a while) then go shop it at dealers. If they can't beat it, decide if you want to go for Craigslist or sell to carmax. You can leave there with just a check.

also, what we say doesn't matter unless it's "I'll give you $xxxx for it" look up all values KBB NADA True Car etc. Print out high ones. Go to Car Max and get a written offer and be prepared to be dissapointed. Remember dealers will sometimes adjust selling price of new vehicle to give you alot for your trade. get a realistic value of what they go for and figure if you want to go to the hassle of selling it yourself.

Just to give you some idea, when I traded my `13 V6 automatic `vert (not premium). The most I could get for it was $19,000. That was almost two years ago, & the car had less than 5,000 (five thousand) miles on it. YMMV
