Bump for a cool car that you don't see many of out there. I've seen a few on 95 between DC and South Jersey or maybe the same one multiple times. (did they come in anything but black?) I've alway liked this car but it is a love it or hate it type of car.

Good luck with the sale,

Bob

If you're that desperate to sell, why not check out CarMax - they buy cars. If you trade yours in, you get a tax credit ie: 7% state sales tax on 34K = $2,380. So in effect, you would be getting $36,380 because tax is not calculated until after the trade amount.

Nice car, it does require a special buyer and that could take time and patience. Good luck.

Is carmax in NJ? I was under the impression it wasn't. And what do you mean about getting $2300 back?

Price of new car = $50,000
Less trade in - 34,000

Difference = 16,000
7% sales tax = 1,120
Total = 17,120

In the above example, at a car dealership, you are paying tax on the difference, or 16,000 amount. With no trade in, you are paying tax on just the purchase of 50,000. So, the sale tax would be 3,500 (7% X 50,000). In other words, by trading in your car, you would pay sales tax of 1120 versus 3500, or a savings to you of 2300.


If you calculate your state sales tax X your trade in amount of 34,000, = $2,380. So, in effect, you're getting 36,380 for your trade. Carmax, or some other buyer, would have to give you that amount for you to break even.

If you are buying from a private party, this does not apply!


Looks like the farthest east Carmax goes is Baltimore. Maybe you can give them a call.
