What to do?

Anyone know a good way to tell my parents I want to trade in my car already? haha.. Suggested retail for my car is $18,375.. I signed for $18,000 when I got it.. the car I found they are asking $22,000 which Im sure I could knock them down a few grand (with my cute smile and all).. But my only problem is my parents co-signed for this car, and I havent gotten it out of their names yet and have a feeling by the time I do the car I found wont be around. Also the car I found is about an Hour drive out of my way. *sigh* I love the one I've got, but want this other one more. What should I do?

be patient, and enjoy what you have. A car is a major purchase that should be researched and seriously pondered before deciding.

^^I agree... and I did a lot of research.. then got slightly impatient.. and got my '02 Auto GT cause I couldnt find a used Manual GTS in yellow.. had my car for a little over a month and went online just browsing and found the manual GTS in yellow.. w/ everything I wanted on it. 2003 w/ only 7k miles. Ack I want it! Ahh I do love what I have as I have said.. but if there was a way to get this one instead w/o taking a huge $ loss then I'd do it.

I hate it when my parents blow me off like they don't want to actually talk about it angry

In your position I might just trade it in. Do you have any mods?

^no.. Ive only had the car since April 4th this year.. Dont even have my plates yet.


Erick. Yah, I'd wait if I could stand it. I have 3 1/2 years left of college... also I dont care to put $ into mods for a GT Auto.. especially if I want to Mod the GTS Manual (if I were to get it).
