Need some advice

If you buy a brand new car and about a month and 400 miles later you decide this car just isn't for for you how soon would you try to trade it back in towards something else? I was told at least wait a year or you will totally lose your a** because once the vehicle is titled it immediately loses value. The car is loaded has a factory power train 100k warranty and an optional bumper to bumper 100k, 3 keys and remotes, paint and interior value guard protection, leather, 6 disc full rockford fosgate system, 18's, and leather but honestly I just hate driving it now so I am unsure of what to do. Plus the dealerships are so far away from my house where as a Chevy or Ford dealer is 10 min away.

The current new car market is such today that one could probably be able to buy a new car much cheaper than what you would be asking for yours.

Never buy new. You can get better deals on slightly used vehicles through private parties. Never buy through a dealer unless you cannot get financing anywhere else.

free advice......

Hi,if youre not sure if you will like the car or not,why not go rent a car like the one you THINK you will buy? you might have to drive a ways,but then you would know for sure ,one way or the other. youre only out the cost of the rental.

Thats exactly what we did.. we were undecided between a Toyota Prius, and a Honda hybrid,, when we went on Vacation last summer,, we rented a Prius, put 1500 miles on it averaged about 48.? MPG,, then later rented the Honda , got about 1200 mi on it,, averaged 36 ? mpg,, oh by the way,,, Toyota applied our rental fees towards the purchase price, don't know if Honda will do that or not,, I think it must have been a promotional thing,,

came home and ordered a 09 Prius,, the wife loves it,, I don't really give a rip one way or the other , cause its her car,, but great mileage ,,,I have a 1 ton duelly, and a gmc dinali, don't ask the mileage,,
