That may be true, assuming the miles are correct for the year. I had nearly 40k on the clock when I traded it in. Meaning the warranty was used up in only 1 year as opposed to three. Couple that with a huge interest rate. It just made more sense to get rid of it now than later. And now that I only drive about *maybe* 60-80 miles a week, I won't hit 3,000 miles for quite some time.
