2006 E350 for a 2010 E350? Worth it?
So I recently received a letter from the dealership saying that there is a summer special and they would like to take my 06 E350 for a higher value. So they gave me three choices... 1) trade in my car 2) trade in my car and buy another car from the dealer 3) keep my car. So I went to the dealer ship to check it out. I bought my pre-owned 06 E350 2 years ago for $29,000 with 36k miles on it and it is currently at 52k miles. The dealer offered me $14,000 for it without buying a car from them and $16,000 if I buy a car from them. The car isn't paid off yet... I still owe $18,000. I negotiated with the dealership and they offered to pay off my car and lease me the 2010 E350, down payment $5,000 and $690 a month (tax included) for 3 years. The sticker price for the 2010 E350 is $58,000 but they said they'll give it to me for $53,000. And if I decide to keep the car 3 years later, I will have to finish paying it off which is about $30,000 more. The 2010 E350 has 2k miles on it but is considered brand new (2k miles driven by the boss/manager at the dealership...) it has the sport styling look, AMG 18" wheel package (but did not include the Driver Assistance Package), Premium 2 package, Parktronic, heated seats, split folding rear seats, beige exterior, beige seats, black interior, and black wood trim. What would you do?!? Is this worth it?!? I just want to hear your opinion... feel free to ask any questions if I left out anything...
