What kind of hit do you think I will take trading an 03 for an 04? 03 has 4800 miles w/prem. pkg, wood kit and is in perfect condition (albeit the bubble seat that is getting warrantied). Will get VPP pricing on 04.
Well, Danny from Grubbs got back to me thru email saying that for a pretty much identical upgrade from 03 to a 04 model would be about $7k w/o TTL. I left him a message to get back w/me to discuss the details.
Everything I pull up on the 03 FX trade shows anywhere from 30-35k. The Black book shows $35k, edmunds shows almost $32. A new 04 with VPP pricing for a identical model should be about $35-$35.5k. Not sure how this ends up being $7. The tradein #'s on these sites must not be for real.
You think Danny is low-balling me? I mean all over the FA you here about how Danny made these guys great deals. Plus I'm not so sure VPP is better than just old fashion negotiation.
If I could find that **** "ticking" sound that seems to show up very frequently now when going over some of the more pronounced "seams" in the roads, I would probably drop this swap issue. I absolutely hate irritating noises. I'm pretty anal and have to have these operate just right.
I going to have them tear the dang window off and find out exactly where this noise is coming. I spend more time trying to find it that my kids think I am nuts.
It looks like I can get an 04 FX35 RWD w/touring,splash guards,side moldings,Sirius and Aluminum pedals for $35,800. My trade-in of my 03 was valued at $33,000 for net of $2800. These cars will basically be identical except for the year swap. Would you guys do it?
in cA i figured out that the 42K FX35 that i want fully loaded is gonna come out to almost 50k with taxes and regestration fees. thats' why I gotta wait until next year when my money in the stock market grows a little.
in NJ you only pay tax on the difference between the purchase price of the new car and the trade in value of your old car.
if you sell the car yourself so it does not show up on the bill of sale, then you pay tax on the full purchase price of the new car.
