Usually to not be upsidedown on the loan takes two years at least.
If you find the right dealer and pay full list on the new car (and a ST may be like that anyway IE they will not discount it) you could get 'extra' for your trade if they want it.)
When i sold my 1996 Mercury Mystique to buy a 1999 SVT Contour at full list, I got an 'exceptional' good trade in on the Mystique.One point is right now dealers are still unloading brand new 2012s and so your car as a used car has less than normal value due to new 2012 discounts, right now.
If you wait three months, your 2012 value will be higher than right now.
