Depends on what you want to do and in what timeframe. Always better to try to sell yourself if you have time, but if you have driven something and have the fever then work your best deal with the dealer.

The dealers play with numbers on a trade....making it look like you put down more $$$ thus lowering the sales tax you pay. All dealers do this but it's only good for YOU if they're giving you a decent trade in price.2007 TITAN LE said:What tax advantage do you speak of? Teach me please!!!
Most of the states I've ever lived in tax on the 'net' sales price.2007 TITAN LE said:What tax advantage do you speak of? Teach me please!!!
They all do that. They just don't give you as much of a discount on the new vehicle and make it look like you're getting a great trrade-in price. Salesman trickery.Titan Pete said:I'd try the trade in route. I just traded in my 03 Dodge Ram on the titan. The KBB trade in was around $13K and I ended up getting 14K from them. I play'd two dealers on the trade and without hesitation they gave me $500 over the other dealer. I traded it in because the AC was about to go and the estimate I got was 2K to fix. I don't mind doing it to a dealer because the consumer who buys it will get it fixed by the dealer.
