Should i trade in my 2012 GT for a 2013??

Hey to all my mustang lovers I need you guys help and advice. I purchased a 2012 Mustang GT in may/June for around 23-24k. And now I want to swap/trade it in for a 2013 GT lol I guess my
?'s are has anyone else done this? Would it work? Is it worth it? This would be my first time trading in a car so soon so I'm not sure if the process is any different or if it would be a pain in the butt...so any advice, opinions, would help thanks!

If this does any help, i went to buy a red, which is my favorite color 2012 5.0, i ended.up getting the black 2013 off some online pics because it was that badass! That being said, i dont regret it one percent!
You need to see where you stand financially

You would lose a lot of money on the trade, and the negative equity can be rolled over to your new loan. It all depends...I don't think it's worth it for another gt. if you had a v6 I would say go for it.

Are you trading in a base GT for a premium GT?... If not the I wouldn't simply because there isn't enough changes between the two for it to be worth it!.. Factor in that you are now trading in a used car, so your not going to get near what you paid for it!..

thanks for that bit of info. I guess I just like the way the 2013 looks haha. I mean I'm good financially and could do it, but just wondering if its worth it. If not forget it lol. Does anyone know if they have the 2013 body kits that will fit the 2012?

Take it up an inquire about it, never hurts to ask.. Maybe they will make you an offer you can't refuse..

Now, would I do it, no... Like said before, the amount of changes is minimal.

You can turn your 12 into a 13 cheaper then gettin a 13. Can get the black mamba setup which includes a better hood and the gt 500 bumper. I don't care much for the rear or front lights. There's better after markets ones out there. If you want the smoked tail lights just tint them or buy the smoked glass piece. Same thing.

I'd say you should wait to see what the 15 looks like

I would stick with the 2012 for now. You wouldn't be gaining much for the amount you will lose on the trade in.

2012 for sure. That's a big loss for diff hood, rear lights, and the tree you get on your display. The power plant is the same. I'd wait til 14-15 to see what they come up with. No point in trading for basically the same car. either way food luck with whichever way you go!

Changing everything to a '13 would be a major PITA. If you have the funds I would trade it. Otherwise, every time you see a '13, you'll be sick.

Those tail lights are the reason I didn't get a 13.

I have been considering doing it since per Kelly blue book my car is worth 4000 more than I owe on it, and if I can haggle a really good deal on a 2013 that gets my car payments down. I am going to talk to the dealer next oil change and see if they want to work with me.

Since I've seen people get 35K cars for under 30, I might be able to get a premium mustang and drop my car payments. Sounds like a win.

Kelly blue book means nothing to a dealership. To get a good idea of what they will pay, you need to look up the black book value. Google free black book value.

Do it when the 14's are about to come out, they're usually trying to make room for them and give out the best deals then

Exactly. The tails are part of why I went with the '13 over the '12. As they say: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Other than the Shelby I prefer the 11-12 style overall

Depending on your local ford dealer and the volume they do. My dealer got me over kbb for my trade and I got a '13 premium that stickered for $38k for $32.5k. It pays to research, a dealer that doesn't sell a lot of cars may not be able to discount as much or give as much for your trade.

If your trading an 11 or up for a 13 ...my opinion not totally worth it. Yea the 13 looks nicer has more nice things interior/exterior, but it's still the same 5.0. Now my 05 4.6 ...I'd trade. Cus it's a lot older and slower ! lol

I hate when you post.... Cause every time you do it makes me look at your pic and want your doors :p lol

No, it was an 08 ridgeline, and noone wants to take those in on trade. I'm just saying that a bigger volume dealer will work out much better in your favor. My local dealer keeps over 30 gt's in inventory all the time. Most of our other stores around here keep 3-4.
