I'm seriously thinking of trading in my 2014 tC for a new wrx in a couple years after I get my loan paid down abit and according to kbb.com a 2011 tC is valued at around 13k in todays market and so I imagine that's what my car will be worth in a couple years and I'll still owe about 16k give or take on it so if I get a good deal for my trade would it be worth rolling over 3k from my loan into a new loan for the wrx? My interest rate would be better as I'm already at 700 credit score now and this is my first car I bought on my own (the tC) so hopefully I can get lower payments and rolling the 3k over won't raise my month payment to much as my credit score will have gone up in a couple years.
So basically would you do that if you were in my position or just wait til you got the car paid off in 6+ years and then trade it in? My girlfriend's mom works at a dealership that can get cars from various car dealers so I would be able to get a family discount up to 10% and her dad works at a Ford dealership and can hook me up with discounts from Subaru since he knows people in the business.
Ideas? Thoughts? Opinions?
