Okay, one by one here
1. But I guess i could see what your saying, since they overprice the used cars by so much, giving you 3000.00 minimum trade would still make them money. Is that correct?
2. I don't exactly know what my credit rating is. I don't really have any credit though. I have a few credit cards and school loans that i pay on, but not much else. I undertsand i probablly wouldn't qualify for a lease or even probablly a loan, in which case i will ask my father to cosign it.
A: You'll have a much easier chance of qualifying for a loan than a lease. Check into a local credit union to get a membership. They offer better interest rates, and are more liberal in their loan lending.
3. Also do you know of anyway I can find out what dealerships offer the 3000.00 minimum trade, other then just calling them all.
A: Not anything like that on used cars. The only incentives I can look up is on new vehicles. You will do best going at the second or last days of the month when the dealers are really trying to move cars.
Look at sites like edmunds
, consumer guide
, and NADA
for the trade in amounts. Offer them a couple hundred over trade in and go from there.
