Try to sell it privatly and be amazed.

It is only worthwhile trading in your car when you know it is a lemon or they are giving you more then you wanted.

The dealer will try to tell you that they will have to make the car presentable again (yeah right...) and then they will have to market it for sale, then leave room for negotiation with another prospect, in other words all CROCK SHIT. Been there and done that to the poor customers, then they used car manager is laughing and their manager will say to him "WE PRACTICALLY STOLE THAT CAR FROM HIM/HER HAHAHAHA" Bastards. I really hated it what they are doing to the poor and rather stupid customers.

Good luck.

How many miles are on your car? What options does it have? I am not surprised at all that they will only give you 12k.

same here. i got more for that for my car and it had a busted front windsheild and almost 50k miles on it. plus i made them switch the wolfsburg wheels to the GTI and have my new rims put onto the Jetta.

wtf?? $12,000??? that's insane. that basically works out to $20,000 canadian. my friend with a 99 gti vr6 loaded is getting that much and he has a 100 k on it!!

this can't be right. i looked on the autotrader for canada and 02 gti's with 15k are going for no less than $26,000.(about $17,000 american)

yup the dealer's trying to f#@k u up big time!!

Yeah they busted my balls on my trade in too but I went ahead and got the AE and I'm gonna sell my old car private party.

Hey, at least I got them to go below MSRP on the 20th AE even though they said they wouldn't for anyone.
