2008 Astra XR
Default trading in

Thinking its time to get a "new"car. Looking at trading in the 3 door Astra with 16200 miles for a Sonic HB or a Cruz.,Know I'll take a bit of a beating on the money I still owe but at least I don't have to do the upcoming fixes. I'll miss the car .

I bought my XR from my boss for 500 because the stealership was only gonna give him $400. Don't trade it in! You might be able to squeak 1800 out of it selling it yourself.

Canít say I want to worry about taking the time to sell it and go through the paying it off process now.

Well, If I may ask..... what do you owe on it? if it's not too much, it still might be really easy to sell for at least that much. Dealership trade in's are such rip offs.

Also depends on the dealer. I work at a chevy dealer and we usually give book value minus the condition (clean or dirty) and repairs (body work, tires, etc). So I guess it depends where you go.
