: Buyers Remorse

I just traded in my 2009 Escalade Hybrid Platinum Blue Chip for a 2011 Escalade Platinum AWD White Diamond. The paid off my car and I paid $76,100.00 for the new truck. Did I pay too much?

what was wrong with the hybrid? was it a rwd or 4wd? 09's came with 0% and usually the payoff is at least $5k to $10k below trade in(for the hybrids). with paying $76k, that is the actual invoice pricing of the platinum esp with incentives. you probably overpayed $5-7k. but it is okay as the platinums are sweet vehicles:)

btw is $76k otd(T/T/L) or excluding those? because you should also get a sales tax credit.

Nothing was wrong with the Hybrid. I bought it used and i was approaching 50k. The Hybrid was a 2wd. So you are saying that I could have bought a New 2011 Escalde Platinum awd for $69,000 - $71,000 in North Texas, that seems a bit unrealistic. The invoice is about 79k not including hold back. Current incentives are 1.9 financing or 3k cash back.

That is including the money back after the trade in. And yours is rwd also unfortunately.
