Also make sure they aren't charging you crazy for GAP or other things. Look at the final montly payments and multiply it out and make your decision from there. Dealers love to sell cars for cheap and get you on other aspects.

At 16k and a horrible 6% interest with 3K trade in your payment should be around $267.00 / 60 months.

Also...If you want GAP make sure to talk to your insurance company first. I know on one of my cars it was $20 a year through insurance, but I got suckered into paying $10 a month from the dealership workup.
Re: the 16K Price, let me clarify, that's 16K w/ all of the incentives added on. As it stands it'll probably be closer to 17K as I don't qualify for the military or college grad incentives (though maybe the college one if my gf signs w/ me...)
