Focus is my Christine

How much would you think a 2007 Focus with 3,300 miles would sell for. I just bought this car and hate it. Its driving me broke, making me argue with my girlfriend and family, I wreck it so now its trying to kill me what else could go wrong. THe only damage is drive side doors but easily replaceable.
Also how do trade ins work does anyone know? I'd kinda like to do that but heard you get the shaft hard.

Hmmm; you might want to have the cars value appraised and have repair work done as necessary. : )

I hope you bought it used because it's sure as heck used now.

What do you mean "it's driving me broke"? It's a new car, you shouldn't have any repair costs, it's probably not paid for so you can get your collision coverage to pay for the repairs from your wreck.

You _could_ trade it but you're going to probably wind up eating $3000-$5000 off of what you paid. Still, there are some predatory lenders who will loan you money for another new car PLUS the extra $3000-$5000 you lost on your '07; for a higher interest rate.

You need to figure out what you want in a car and how long you plan to own one before you buy.
