For what it is worth, every time I have traded a car in here in Houston (4 times), they gave me the NADA value - real simple, if they didn't I would have gone elsewhere.defender said:BTW:
NADA "trade-in" is a number that dealers rarely, if ever allow!
Dealers take in cars at wholesale - and most of them use GALVES (at least here on the East Coast).
The only time you will ever see "trade-in" numbers from NADA is if there are programs/dealer incentives on the new car.
perfect list!nutbush said:Not a bad deal but check the obvious things. Brake rotors must be clean without gashes or grooves. Check under the car to see if there is damage to the splash pans. Check the front fascia to see if there are any major gouges there. Check exhaust and make sure it actually is stock. Ask to see all the maintenence records. Ask if any recalls have been performed i.e column lock. A look under the hood will tell you basically how the car was taken care if. If it's clean 9 out of 10 times it was well maintained. If it's filthy, there ya go.
With 20k miles you are probably looking at a new set of tires in the next few months. Take that into consideration. Good Luck.
