PostSubject: Some possible sad news   Mon May 21, 2012 11:17 am

I may be trading the FJ in for A 2008 4Runner. Im trying to get rid of payments. Any words of wisdom to guide me in this quest. I haven't talked to the dealership to see what kind of deal they will do, but im going there later.

That's cold Casey, you can't loose with a 4Runner and I am partial to an 08 4X4Runner. One thing to make sure of is find the vehicle you want first and find out the value of your current vehicle, trade value and book value. You might end up loosing some on a trade in. Another thing is Toyota's hold their value so much that you might be surprised how much an 08' will cost. Be smart and shop around before you make a deal.

You can also bring your FJ in to CarMax for a 2 week price to purchase quote. That can give you an idea of how much you might be able to get on selling it. Hope that helps a little.

Yeah I'm at 88k and my 100 k warranty just saved me. I got the rear end rebuild and front left and right wheel bearings done.
