has anyone traded in their 07 CC LE Trucks?

and if so, if you don't mind answering, what did they give you for a trade in value?

I'm thinking with the .9% financing of trading my truck in for a 10. The warranty is up in may and i hate having a vehicle with no warranty. I don't owe that much on the truck so i hope i have plenty of equity in my truck so I don't have to put much money down and have my payments at or under what im paying now.

I'm not planning to trade anytime soon, but I'm curious myself.

Thanks Todd,

However those are not as accurate. It told me that my 04 was worth 11,000 for trade in and i got 18,000.

With the way that auto sales have been they might be giving better trade in values to get people to buy new.

You must have not had something correct when you plugged in the details, that's a huge discrepancy.

I've always found NADA to be very close to real world trade in prices and KBB works as a second opinion.

Not to mention that the dealer can show you anything for trade in on paper.

Another suggestion would be to scope out prices on places like Autotrader.com and see what used ones like yours are going for.
From those prices you can pretty much figure less then that for trade in.

i wouldn't say its too terribly far off $15,825 it what nada average for my 07 KC 4x4 with 40k miles for the trade in and when i bought the truck in 08 with 20k miles it was valued at 17,500 and i didn't pay much over that but i got a hell of a deal. go on ebay and you'll find some selling for as much as 18,900 for a kc with 33k miles from a dealership which goes pretty well with its trade in value

Do our trucks usually sell around the KBB figures? I assume it would be lower as my truck books at trade in around $22k and thats what I paid for it new.

Toyota's on the other hand usually sell above KBB figures.

You could also look around on craigslist and see what private parties and dealers are asking for their trucks and use it for a good base.

To OP, I believe Clint just traded in his truck which was similar on a 2010, he would be an excellent resource.

I know it doesn't make any sense, but I think that they are LESS willing to deal if vehicles are not selling well. They usually do the best deals when cars are selling. That's how it's always been. I don't know why.

The credit union I worked at a while ago followed NADA, and it seemed to be the norm in the industry. Who knows?

Check out Craigslist, I do all the time to just see what other Nissan's, mileage, and all that are going for.

I check NADA and KBB from time to time, but was lloking for some recent "actual" experience. ToddG makes a good point though, what's on paper may be entirely different too.

I think it also depends on what configuration the truck is:

I assume the most popular and sought after is -

Crew cab, 4x4, auto, and shortbox. SE trim seems to be pretty popular too, probably because it is the most cost effective for the options you get.

Someone is going to really want or need a long bed, same with the Pro4x.

Hmm... You sure about that? My experience has been the following:

Dealers can often make a higher margin on used vehicles, over new. So that's an incentive for them to trade.

If new vehicles are slow to move off the lot, (from the dealer's POV), that's an added incentive to trade.

That's why (in my experience) it's smarter to go shopping near the end of their monthly sales cycle.

Of course, I'm not an expert, only a consumer, so I could be reading the trends wrong... although I always get better deals than anyone else around me. :)
