Stealerships!!!!!Arrrrrrrrg!!!!

So just for laughs I went to a dealership to see what they would give me for my truck if I traded in to buy another. I have 102000 miles on my Ranger. They inspected it and everything and they came back with $2500. $2500!!!!!! WTF!!!! I couldn't believe it. KBB is at like $7000 even with the miles. I took my key back and stormed out of there. Stupid people.

while i was truck shopping, i went to CarMax before i ended up buying my '02 at JM Lexus, and CarMax offered me $150 for my '96. i also walked out and was insulted.

i could have sold it for 4 times that much, myself, with no problem.

back in December I walked in to the dealer to see what they'd do to get me into an 07 F-150, yeah they wanted to give me $5000 for mine, I told them I owed more than that and I wouldn't go upside down in a loan...

Dude...I wanted to test drive a 05 Frontier(the new style w/ 265hp). Went to the same dealership I bought my truck, even had the same salesman. Drove it, just wanted to see how much it would run me. I bought the truck for $10,588. They offered me $6,000. Mind you...this was about 3 months after I bought it from them. lol.

Yeah, as usual they are some greedy hombres for sure. They offered me less than 300 bucks for my '90 Cougar w/lo miles back in '01 when I bought my Ranger. I sold it for 1100 a few months later. They know most people just wanna unload the "old" wheels and get the new car so they offer [email protected]%, most people cave in and take it.

well see the thing is people. if resale value is say 10,000 they are not gonna offer $10,000.. they are a business and want to make a profit so.. say cut that in half easy... and offer $5,000 just like someone said. most people are wanting to unload a car fast... and face it people 90% of the time when someone wants to trade a vehicle in its because there is something wrong with it they dont want to fix...

just like we traded in my GF 1998 grand am 4cyl.. he only offered us $1300 for it.. we took it for 1 reason.. it needed $2100 in parts to fix it alone..

Well to be honest it was a Toyota dealer. They have a Tacoma that I like and I wanted to see what my payments would be. My truck has been to Ford 3 times for the front pinion seal and I now found that it is leaking from the extension housing seal. But I was still insulted with that $2500.

2500 is REALLY low. i got offered 3200, about half of KBB retail value, for mine and its older, 2wd with a smaller engine and close to the same millage. Id try going private party if you really want to sell it for a decent price

I was thinking about getting the other truck and selling my private party but then I would be stuck with high payments on the newer truck.
