So they offered you $14000 and you didnt take the offer?....thats what your car was worth; they arent going to give you anymore than what its worth. I think it was a deal and you should've taken it.

I cant really help much but i always buy this way. I see the car i like and then i ask for a price. I then go to several dealers and get there, prices. I then look at the best dealer for service. I do some more reseach on the car and then head back to the dealer with my price that i will pay. The one closest to my price with some options thrown in from the dealer wins the oppertunity to take my cash. I did that with my mag and it worked. i paide 31K out the door and it was an ordered car from the manufacturer. I know others that paid a lot more close to 36K.
good luck i wish you where close my dealer has some nice units for sale.

i dont think that it was good deal - they could have offered more - the car has 1400 miles on it... with ALOT OF options - I have lether, ABS, Front and rear bags, sunroof, power everything, cd chanegr, jbl sound, sirius, plus others.... They could of worked something out..Im sure they wont have any problekm selling a car with that many options, but the magnum was on the lot for 4 weeks....

With all of those things it only adds $1000 on to the trade-in value. Here you were complaining about the dealership not willing to deal, and here I try to help you; then I find out its you not willing to deal over $1000 trade difference. I think they were giving you a good deal. You arent going to get what you paid for it, back on trade. Your car loses $5000 just driving it off the lot; then you subtract the mileage, more than likely you've just lost about $7000-$10,000 altogether.
My thing is why spend all that money just to trade it in in a few months...If you didnt like the car; than why did you get it?
