Trade or not to trade, that is the question.

I've been thinking over and over...and then I get his letter in the mail from the Ford Dealership. I could trade my 2000 Kona zx3 in for a new 2003 or 2004 zx3 and get $4000 trade in value on it with 0%APR...I'm confused. I could keep mine as a 'classic' or I can just get a brand new one...and get the black colour one. Gosh I wish I could kept both. But mine does has water spots, scratches from idiots that are jealous of my car and it does need a oil change this month. What to do!#$!@#%

The question is. Do you want car payments for another 4 to 5 years? But hey if money is good and what not go for it. I sure would if I could!

check to see what you could sell it for privately. You may be able to get more than $4000 for it. And you may not qualify for the 0% even though they offer it

i say keep your kona.... or atleast sell it privately. dealers never pay full market value for a car.

you might want to check out www.edmunds.com to see what a fair price for your specific car is. i love that website.

also, you have to have excellent credit to qualify for the 0% apr. i have very good credit and still did not qualify for it last july when i bought my car....

Financial flexibility or new car, that is the question.

if you have all the extras that came with the car I'd either say keep it or sell it cause your not going to get alot if you trade it.
