Trade in? Or keep driving?
Looking for some advice. Here is the situation.
My wife and I are expecting our first kid. And considering what to do with our car situation. I have a 2000 Mercedes 320 CLK. Has about 140K miles on it. Still runs okay, but probably only has a few more years left before it starts requiring major replacements/repairs. Only worth about $4-5K.
Wife drives a 2006 SLK. About 40K miles on it. We just finished paying this one off. And still in very good condition. But since only two seats, not as practical anymore. Prob worth about $18-20K.
One option is to trade-in both cars. And try to get the max value now for the trade in (Probably get the ML, and not sure what for the second.).
The other option is to just trade in the CLK and continue to drive the SLK. And just drive the ML when we are all together. I just wonder if it isn't better to change both cars now since we are going to eventually need larger cars.
Any advice? Thanks.
