I did the same thing recently. I went to look at an F150 and the guy said he could only get me $2K for my car. (2012 SE 5spd 155K miles). He suggested I donate it to the local PD program that provides cars to people in need. I could get full bluebook value as a tax deduction. I laughed. I'll keep my car, it runs great and especially since gas is over $4 around here now!
