Do you think Good Idea?

I have owned 5 WK2's with 2 being SRT and I loved the SRT. I have on order a Shelby GT350 and it's coming in next week. For my DD I picked up a brand new White Altitude but I miss my SRT. I'm looking at trading in the brand new ALT for a used SRT becauswe the value is so better on a used one. I'm currently looking at a Max Steel 2014 w/ 28,000k on the ticker for $50K. Do you think this is a good idea?

Re: Do you think Good Idea?

Probably not a good idea as you will loose money on the altitude. Also the SRT seems priced a tad high. Market should be around 45k on one with the mileage you mentioned. But it all comes down to what makes you happy and it's your money.

Of course it's a good idea, you thought of it.
But I'm confused Why are you asking a forum? You obviously have some discretionary cash to throw around.
If you were worried about the value, you'd be focused on the money lost on your trade, not which vehicle is a better value.

Re: Do you think Good Idea?

With a GT350 coming, then I don't see why a basic Altitude wouldn't be perfect for a DD. Now if the Jeep was going to be your only vehicle and you wanted something more fun then without a doubt get the SRT.

Holy cow! Money is moving out quicker than a SRT.

Re: Do you think Good Idea?

Sell the Jeep and cancel the rustang order. Buy a buy a vette and a cts-v waggon. That's the best idea I've had all day if you were wondering

It might be an extra bit of financial effort, but he should sell the Jeep, cancel the Mustang and just get a Range Rover SVR.

Most of us are not blessed financially to juggle so many cars in such a short time. Whatever you do, choose what makes you happy. But maybe you should try a non-American car at this point.

Good point. I'm going to order a 16 75Ann limited hemi instead.
