    I recently went to the dealer and talked about to get my normal oil change wheels rotated whole norm check up and he said he really liked my car and wanted it bc its blacktop edition he said he would sell me a 2015 challenger R/T it has everything in it mine has expt for leather heated/cooled seats and 1 it has that i dont is sun roof really pretty car but has 20k miles... and i have 12k miles wth 60/6yr and it has 70/7 yr warranty i test drove it i like it but im scared that it might be ran in or hurt... i bought my car off the lot with 100 miles bc every pre owned vehicle i bought ends up breaking down in a yr or 2 and with my neg eq rolled over and what he would give me would be the exact same as the remainder of my loan

    IE paid 37k for SXT down to 34k he wants 27k and would give me 25k for my car.. puts me back at 34k...
    whats your thoughts...

    If I were you, I wouldn't do it. I'd never buy a used muscle car unless it were a classic. You have no idea if those 20k miles are easy miles or beat the snot out of it miles.

    My two cents.

    My 2 cents. 7/7 warranty--you're ahead of the game, tell him $26 out the door-all in (taxes, plate transfer, title transfer) and your car. You're upgrading to a 2015 and an R/T. AND you're not out any cash. If he agrees, and I think he will, JMO: Go For It!

    I'm not saying you have to go for that deal but I would recommend stepping up to a V8 if it fits the budget. I don't think you will have any regrets when it comes to the increase in power.

    2x the above advice.. Think of it like buying a hezt rental car.. yes, some operators drive good and then some just abuse it.... hard to say. You got a challenger, your already a King.

    You said he wants 27 for the car. I'm saying, tell him 26 and your car! They ALWAYS like to play with numbers with the trade in. It's end of year, they need to to clear in-stock new & used cars for the 2017 models.

    One more thing zach. In the mean time, while you're just looking, give your insurance company a call. See what the difference would be between your SXT and a R/T, if any. Would be bad to get a sweet deal and then find out your insurance out ways your upgrade.
