Trading v6 for gt

So i decided to trade in the sixer for a gt, i have my eyes on one of two, one is an 05 lime green gt with the premium pckg. With 32,000 miles on it automatic, 16,000 dollars. Or an 07 white gt, 5 speed with 32,000 miles on it for 22,000 dollars. Mine is an 07 v6, with 69,000 on it, i plan on taking off the rims on mine and putting them on the gt, which ever one i get. So what do u guys think i should get for a trade in value on mine

Re: Trading v6 for gt

Do a quick kbb for your area to get a rough idea of what it's worth. It's hard to give you a price right now as there are so many factors ~ where you live, is yours an auto or manual, deluxe or premium, etc.

I'm sure you could get that price down on that 07..if they don't want to budge on asking price then demand more for your trade. Never pay the asking price, and never take what they offer you for your trade.

Both cars have low miles for the years, but damn that 05 seems pretty cheap, even for an auto. Either way I say go with a manual car...even though you can tune those autos there's nothing like banging through those gears

The '07 was built after Ford straightened out the dash gauge problems.

I was able to get 11k for my 06 Legend Lime 4.0 last year. It had 74k on it and was with 5 spd and Pony Pkg. Work them a little bit. If you can squeeze out 10k and get the 07 GT to 20k and below I think you would be in business.

if you can sell yours private party and SAVE a ton of cash vs trade in, they will rip you a new one trade in 90% of the time.

They will give you what you want but tack on fees or value to the new car they have all sorts of tricks. Just be SURE every thing is itemized and you understand EVERY charge etc... also doc fee's are just their way of charging you a bit more for your new car

some banks give you an open loan for X amount of time so you can sell your car and finalize it after you have the funds from the sell. I had to do this a few cars back and it worked fine.
