Sure as heck did!


Found a 2007 ford f150 fx4 5.4L with 95k black on black with leather, all power options, loaded, towing package, bed liner and a nearly rust free (unusual for NY!!!!, my dads 2006 is pure rusted chassis) for $17,500.

Getting $12k for my car would make my payment go from $211 a month to $253 ish.

Damn trucks are too expensive lol

typically, trading in a vehicle is a rip off. Not only do you never get anywhere near what your vehicle is worth, the more complicated a transaction, the easier it is for them to play with the numbers and screw you over.

You are always better off selling the car privately. Most people just don't want to deal with the hassle, but for $5k, it seems crazy to not to.

I'm in the same boat. I'm looking to trade my 2012 for a truck or even SUV. Trucks are are ridiculous. $15,000 for a 100k Taco or Silverado? Crazy. And it doesn't help that Focus resale is in the toilet. I thought people were trading in their gas guzzlers...I guess not.

I miss all the incentives they were handing out in 2009. I paid 13k for my Focus back then. MSRP was 19.2k
