I bought a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 about 4 months ago. I wish I would have gotten something smaller, better on gas. This is my 1st 'new' vehicle. I am wanting to know how Dealers and creditors feel about trading a new vehicle back in so soon?

I wish I'd have known. You could have just written me a check for $8k.

The second you drove off the lot the car depreciated more then you would believe. If you financed it you are probably in negative equity at the moment.

Their throbing members will be aroused at the reading of the thread title.

Salivating at even a hint at a future sale the loyalty to whatever car dealership at what they are worshiping/employed at the present time will become quite clear.

If you want to get rid of the truck, you'll be much better off selling it yourself. They'll eat you alive at the dealership.

Dale Mercer is one of those slimy sales managers at a car dealership, you should PM him.

You kinda deserve it when you buy the 5th best domestic full-size.

You can't afford a Dodge either. Heh.

I'd drive a dodge truck if I won one in a contest or something. ;)

It had 130000 miles on it. The engine was fine, but the suspension had me worried. Making weird noises. I decided to trade it in.

I'm not loyal to any particular auto maker either but I'd buy a Ford, GM, Toyota, or Nissan long before I bought Dodge. Dodge trucks aren't great.

Unless you have decent cash to put down you'll be in your truck for a little while. Unless you got Gap insurance.....

It would have saved you azz loads of money to go ahead and pay $500 for new ball joints, struts, shocks, whatever to fix the ranger, than to trade it in for a brand new gas guzzler that depreciated $10k the minute you drove it off the lot.

Live and learn, that's all I got to say...

So, the question I have to ask myself is, do I take it in the ass from gas prices, or take it in the ass from a dealer?

You'll take a lot less in the ass from the gas pump than you will a new truck. Might need to think about driving less, huh? As Tombstone said. live and learn.

If you take it from gas prices at least you'll still have something tangible to show for it.

Pretty much. Sometimes bad decisions are expensive. Sorry to hear it.
