Traded in GT for a GTS!

Didn't think I would do it, but the right deal came along and I went for it.

Down side is this: on the loan for my GT I had 72 months, and I still had 61 months left, and I just got a new 72 month loan again for the GTS and my payment jumped from 225/month to 273/month.

I think it's worth it though because the GTS will be my car all throughout college (about 3-4 more years) and if I can afford it then why not get it?

I traded in my GT, owed 11k on it. The GTS was listed at 14k, but got it down a little. I didn't put any down payment.

2001 GTS fully loaded 6 speed
-30k miles


Good deal you guys think? I'm happy with it. Lift is awesome (even though I knew how it was before) and it's addicting. tongue

Congratulations! I figured it was inevitable for you to get a GTS. Sounds like a good deal, too. Do we get to see pictures?

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Cool deal. thumbsup

I wouldn't finance a car for 72 months, but seeing as you already had done it on the GT... not a huge difference here between the two.

I did the same thing a while back. I had an auto GT and I saw this 6 speed GTS and just stoppped in to look at it. A week later it was mine. I would have had it sooner but the dealer wanted too much, so I just got up and walked out on him. Later that day I got home and there was a message on my machine from them with a new offer. Plus they replaced my windshield since it had a crack. I'm a lot happier. Lift is a good feeling isn't it?

Yeah, for sure. I'd never finance a car for more than three years.

Awesome bro. You got a great deal, however 72 mo is crazy. You are gonna end up paying a buttload of interest on that car. You might also be upside-down on it if you want to get a new car in 3 years.

It may not be worth it to you, but it was obviously worth it to him...and I for that matter, as I did the same thing last year.

Anyway, congrats on the GTS. thumbsup thumbsup
