Yeah, not my cup o' tea either. Wheels are nice, and I like the two tone interior. And I can't imagine the depreciation hit of trading in an '05.

The hit wouldn't have been so bad if I kept the miles right for the time I had it. But a 700 miles/week commute for 6 months will kill resale faster than anything else. Either I take a big hit now, or a much bigger one later. I would have loved the Malibu SS but those come in all black interior...something that won't go too well with the hot Florida sun. Besides, I would have had higher insurance and fuel costs.

So how would you have a bigger hit later? Any car I've ever seen takes a $5-10K hit the first year, $3-5K the next, and about $2K a year after that.

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.

Nice car and you did well. You got a newer higher optioned car for a good price right? With the miles you put on a car it would have been worth nothing but wholesale by this time next year. Good lick with the new car.
