Default Maybe getting a new ride

Hey, all, just wanted to let everyone know I'm hopefully getting a new ride tomorrow. It'* a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze LS with the 6-speed stick. With a generous manufacturer rebate, and, even more generous employee discount, it basically wipes out all my negative equity in my Malibu. I'll know tomorrow for sure if I'm able to get it or not. Here'* the pic/details from my dealership I work at: 2012 Chevrolet Cruze for sale in Vermilion - 1G1PD5SH6C7117315 - Pat O'Brien Chevrolet Vermilion

Good luck. You have negative equity on a 2003 Malibu???? You will have negative equity on your 2012 Cruze unless you put down a huge down payment. I would imagine your negative equity will rise by a substantial amount with the 2012.

Be ware of fuzzy math. No car manufacturer or car dealer will wipe out your negative equity in a 2003 Malibu.

I had negative equity, but, I got a huge rebate from GM, plus, I also got employee bonus cash, which basically wiped out my negative equity.
