Default I Hate My New F***ing Car!

Damn. I sold my 1989 Bonneville SSE, and thought I was going up by buying my new to me 2003 Intrepid.......oh......my......god. At first I liked it, and now I hate it and want to get rid of it!
I originally wanted a newer Bonneville, but couldn't find one in the right price range, and when I did, the km were too high. So, that'* how I settled for my Intrepid. It'* cheap, tinny,gutless....oh, and no leather LOL, well....it'* just boring.
I haven't even taken the time to wax it yet.....couldn't be bothered. I don't know, I've never done this, but can you trade a car in that you still owe alot of money for? I've only had it 6 months.

Sure you can. They might ding you though. Try to find a buyer who will assume the lease/finance.

Just do it quick, before the thing starts to blow blue smoke like most Chrysler/Dodge POS cars do after a couple of years. Seriously. I've seen lots of new Intrepids smoking at stoplights. I wouldn't drive one if it were given to me.

Hate to break it to you, but you're going to get RAPED! Intrepids have HORRIBLE resale value. You could drive a brand new one off the lot and it would immediately drop $8k off it'* value. Many cars drop off in value once they've been sold, but not many drop as far as an Intrepid. Your best bet would be to wait awhile and try to do a private party sale. The dealership will absolutely love you if you were to bring it back in to trade it. They might give you half what they sold it to you for...

If you do decide on keeping it, head on over to DodgeIntrepid.net. I have been a member over there almost since it was founded. I used to own a '94 Intrepid ES. I liked the car. Actually thought it was great while I owned it. I had my share of problems, but I did put over 70k miles on it and I bought it with 94k on it, what can I expect. All told, I bought it for $4k, put just under $6k in repairs over the course of 3 years & 70k miles (that includes EVERYTHING ever replaced!). Sold it for $2400 and bought my b'ville over a year ago. Overall, I can't complain, it just started to get little annoying problems so I decided to dump it and found my bonnie! Such a HUGE improvement in EVERYTHING!
