Trading IN....

Well,

I'm seeking advice. I'm going in on Thursday to get a rough idea on how much money the dealer will give me as a trade in on my 2007 Compass for a new one with the new Warranty. Not only would I get the Lifetime Warranty I would get the Rallye Edition which I really wanted in the beginning (wasn't available).

Right now I have about 18,000 miles on my Compass. That's half way through the warranty...and it hasn't even been a year.

I think I'm making the right decision,
anyone care to share their opinion?

I'm estimating it will cost me about $7,000 to do the upgrade. With the $2,000 for the Rallye and then another $2,000 for Taxes again. That's leaves me with hoping I get about $21,000 for my Compass.

Any ideas, has anyone sold or bought a used Compass, how much did you pay?

I just punched in the numbers at Kelly Blue Book. I may be a little off with the options. I used a random zip code from Tampa.

Excellent

Good

Fair

Hopefully since you would be buying from them again, they would give you a better trade in, although early on is when you are upside down on how much you owe/worth of jeep.

I had a similar thought but I just bought a new house a few weeks ago... I can't afford to do that now

Well my Jeep's "paid off." In a sense that my student loans helped pay for it. I was hoping to get at least 18,000 for it. They are selling online for about 21-22. And I have all the options except Sunroof and Rims. They also have a $1,500 incentive for the Compass right now.

Not sure... Will go tomorrow to talk it over with the dealer.

$1500 Incentive for the Compass? That's the first I've heard of that. Do you have any more details? And would the incentive be available on the Rallye Edition?

The incentive is on 2007 Compass. It might only be in the US though.

So I went to the dealer today and finally got a trade in price from them. They offered 14,000. What a slap in the face. The KBB suggested trade in value is $17,700 w/o all the options I have on my car. And I looked up ones selling for similar milage @ $20,000. I told them I would come back after I sell it myself.

Anyways.. I'm really trying to find an aftermarket body kit for the Compass. Similar to what's on the Rallye, any idea on how I can get it? lol

Yeah they buy it from you for 14000 and then turn around and sell it for $20000... if they're lowballing you on the trade in value why do you want to come back and buy another car from them?

Yeah honestly I don't think I would go back to them. I might try the one in Tampa closer to my school. They were actually really good as far as service goes. Maybe they will give me a better deal. I'll see in a few weeks.

But right now I'm not really pushing to trade in. It was just a thought, the idea failed.

So now I just pray for the aftermarket Rallye Kit. (or something similar)
