So far... no. You will likely be MUCH better off selling it on Craigslist or autotrader than doing a trade. I made out about $3k better by selling my car vs. a trade in... which was close to a 25% improvement.

Carmax and the other used car dealers are a LAST resort and you likely wont get anymore than they are offering when you trade.

I think it depends on what you are trading, if it's something they want/ need they will give you a decent price. For me I was tranding in a 11 JGC Overland and they gave me what I was asking for it. It was on par for what other dealers were offering for my 11.They had no used JGC on their lot and needed my trade.

Re: DC metro area group buy

Hey guys. I'm out near Westminster, MD and I'm interested in getting in on the group buy. Is it still in effect? If so, could I get the info?

Thanks! Looking forward to getting my 2014 JGC.

PM me your email address and I'll connect you with the folks we're working with.

For the most part the GB hasn't seen good trade in results -- though plynn7 a few posts above said they got a decent value for theirs, the first positive post on trade in.

Ok, good to know. I'm thinking I'll end up going the Carmax route for my trade.

Try Craigslist or autotrader before you bite the bullet on carmax... you can still give someone a smoking good deal and make more money than you will selling to carmax.

Re: DC metro area group buy

What are you guys seeing as far as time from the date of order and the date of the trucks getting to the dealer for pickup? Nader's telling me 6-8 weeks but I was curious if that's pretty spot on or not.

Worked out the numbers and I'm going to be placing my order here in the next week or two.

Thanks fellas!
