Question to sell or trade?

just looking to get some feed back, mostly from recent car buyers if they traded. i have a 04 SVTF of course and i have been on both intellichoice and kbb to see on trade in prices and sell prices. so what do you think would be the best bet? also i'm looking at buying the ford fusion SEL V6, not sure if that will make a difference on the trade. thanks

I would check to see if ford offers any owner loyalty rebates ,other than that your going to get more money if you sell it yourself.

yes you will always get more if you sell it as a private owner. it'll probably break your heart when you trade your car in for $6k and then see it on the lot the next day for $13k.

how come you're getting rid of it? growing family? since you're getting the newer and bigger car. i'd keep the svt if you could afford it or have the space for it.

car

orangeSVTguy, getting rid of it due to i am tired of stick, and a couple more. the stop lights keep getting closer and the drives after walking 3+miles a night at work i am tired when i go home, plus my oldest daughter is 16 and is going to need a car to drive so the fusion or my wife's durango will go to her. i am looking at a 05 YZF600 for back and forth to work. i will miss it if i do get a fair amount for it, either way i will still be looking for a bike or cheap used car.

if you are tired of chenging gears... a bike probably isn't the best daily driver... especially a 6 speed one

I had an '04 GTO with 12K mi. The most I could get a dealer to give me was $18K even though they're were several around town with more miles going for $23-25K. $18K was enough to get me out from under the loan but it wouldn't leave me any money to put towards another car. My step-dad,who actually got the loan, finally took it back to the dealer we got it from and they gave him $17K on the trade so he took a $1000 loss. It was dumb.

Giving up an SVT Focus for a Fusion. I'll never understand it no matter what the reasoning, lol, sorry. Man I've been seeing a lot of those Fusions around town, (old people) and they are hideous!! (The car, not the old people, lol.)

i love the way the fusion looks personally, and if i were in his shoes with a growing family and what not i can see why he is making this decision
