I know what ever I do other than keeping the vehicle is financially stupid. Here’s the story. I purchased a brand new 2015 Mustang 4cyc Ecoboost about 3 months ago. At the time, I did a lot of research, and it was the best option for me financially. Since purchasing it, I have really wanted the 5.0 engine (wanted it from the beginning). I ended up just getting a huge promotion at work, and can now afford the 5.0 Mustang (2017).
Given the situation, what do I do? My current Mustang has 4,000 miles on it, and has been running fine, but it’s just NOT what I want. How screwed would I get if I go back to the same dealer and trade it in on a brand new 5.0? I know cars depreciate when you drive it off the lot. For example, if you paid 25k for car 2 months ago, what could you expect for a trade-in offer several months later?
Anyway, I HATE to have to wait to get the 5.0, and didn’t know what my best option was - Auto Trader, etc?
