hmmm save money now or later?
ill take the saved $ now thank you mr smarty pants rather than pay more
now, get a lil more later..
live in the moment i say, way this worlds going it might not be here
now that I find funny.. considering when I traded my 2000 Elantra wagon in I
got almost what I paid for it 4 years later and they sold it for what it
sold for BRAND new..;-) bought a 2004 Elantra GT and traded that in 18
months later, again got almost what I paid for it and they sold it for what
it sold for BRAND new.. bought a 2006 Santa Fe.. because the colour I
bought is no longer available, I have been offered MORE Than I paid for it 5
months ago. GO FIGURE.. and YOU say Honda's hold their resale BETTER than
Hyundai???? hmmmmmmmmmmm might wanna recheck that..;-)
Being an owner of a Hyundai Elantra 02 myself, I m happy to read this
and would like to believe it to. But edmonds.com and kbb.com do not say
the same thing! They show the values depreciated by at least 50% after
4 yrs! My Elantra 02 is as clean and well-maintained as it can be. Only
has some dents on the sides from the doors of cars parked adjacent to
mine in the carport (can't help it!!!) Any suggestions on what you did
to get such a good trade-in price?
well considering I got it less than list price, I doubt it..;-) it was to
make me feel better after the Elantra.. had 14 problems with it in 18
months.. including having a new clutch put in it at 12,000 Kilos... bent
throughout bearing.... 4 different stereo systems.. but the last straw was
them telling me that the top end needed to be done at 21,000 thats when we
decided to trade it in....
Depends on how long you keep your vehicles. I keep mine at least 10
years or 200,000 miles and at that point they are generally worth next
to nothing anyway. And three times nothing is still nothing.
If you are one of those folks that trades for a new car every two or
three years, then, yes, the trade-in value can be a significant issue.
Even so, a Honda will hardly be worth three times more than a Hyundai.
Maybe 1/3 more...
