This morning we took it to Carmax to see what they would pay for it. We were expecting between at least $3,000 - $4,000. They come back and say that they heard the clicking sound (damn it!) and they were offering $500.00. Well, after laughing in their face, we became downtrodden and a bit depressed. We had seen another van at a dealership that we might like, so out of desperation we stopped there.
We liked the van a lot and told them, "it all depends on how much you give us for our trade in." They ended up giving us around $3,000.00 for the trade in. Suckers! (Well, either they gave us that much or they took it off the price of the car we bought, probably the latter.) Either way, we are free of that nightmare!
We were hoping to get at least $3,500.00 for the trade in, but after the Carmax experience we were happy to take the $3,000.00. At any rate, that piece of trash Dodge cost us about 5 grand in 10 months. I will never buy a Dodge again.
We are hoping for much better luck with this van. It is a 2006 Kia Sadona. It only has 22,000 miles on it and it is pretty nice. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING could be worse than that Dodge.
Here are some a photo of the world class automobile:
