Angry Anybody tried to trade in yet?

I'm really missing the room from my crew cab and tried to trade the other day for a new one and they offered me only $18,000 for my 2010 R/T with 10,xxx miles on it. They said it's just and slt with an appearance package and I got took.

and you believed them???? I'd expect them to say something like that to drive the trade price down.

look you truck up on http://www.kbb.com and use the trad-in value option. Use the "good" condition because as far as trades go, no vehicle is "excellent".

Also, any mods you've done that are not on the list of options on kbb, mean little to nothing when trading it in.

hahahaha...good first step! RB pointed out some good steps for determining book values. It's a tough market out there, just like the real estate market, with depressed values and a tough seller's market.

It's gonna pay off to hold to what you have right now and get your money's worth out of it.

I haven't tried anything with the R/T, but in my experience with other vehicles, you automatically lose at least $8-$10,000 as soon as that truck leaves the lot.

My dealer sent me a letter saying they were trying to build up there used truck inventory and wanted to buy my truck back. I wouldn't mind an R/T as I really wanted leather and a sunroof when I got mine but there weren't any around. Mine is a Big Horn 2009 crew cab. They offered me 21000. I promptly got in my truck and left!!
