I'm just curious if anyone has traded in a 2005 C6 and how much they got for it. I see a lot of dealers with nice 2005 C6's on the lots asking in the $38-40K range and I'm curious as to how much they have in these cars. NADA lists the trade-in value at around $35K. This seems pretty high. Any experience out there?

Trade in value is only an arbitrary figure connected to the new car price.

If I pay $2000 over sticker trade in price will be $2000 over blue book.
If I pay $2000 under sticker trade in price will be $2000 under blue book.

Get a trade in price on a the purchase of a Cadillac then see if they will give you the same amount on an Aveo?

just my 2 cents and experience with dealers.

Its so funny that you mention this because I was specifically thinking of trading the C6 in on Aveo.

My experience especially with Vettes is never trade, sell it yourself.

I sold my 02Z when I was buying the new one and got about $2k over the private party value because someone knew how well I took care of the car. In fact, he didn't even negotiate which I realize is strange but some people do that if they know the car's owner and car's condition.

Traded my Base 05 C6 3600 miles for 35K just this week...

With 08's coming out move fast on trade or sale because numbers will fall when people can get left over 07's for 39K and under..

Thats exactly what I was thinking when I traded in my 05.... the numbers worked at the time but I'm sure things have changed in the last month or so...........

If you want top dollar sell it yourself. I just bought a 2005 C6 for $38K, but it was like brand new with all the options. Less than 7K miles.
