Mileage 157,398 new NIRO?

Who would be upset if I traded my Niro in early. Basically have an offer to get into a 2019 LX. Sticker price $25,130. Out the door price $20,200. That takes into account trade value and what I owe on the car which are about equal.

General reason for trading in is I know they are willing to deal to make room for the 2020's. As a sales rep I don't like my customers knowing I have new vehicles. With this I would have the same car, same color, just starting over with mileage.

That sounds like a great deal. And it seems like it will work well for your purposes. I say go for it.

Yeah I think it's a great deal. Used to be able to do that with the Prius early on until they became easier to get.

Really? Your current car is only worth about $2,000? It is normal to get about a $3,000 discount on a Niro without a trade in. That's ballpark what I got on my 2018 LX in January 2018 near the beginning of the model year. I'm not so sure this is a great deal, except for the dealer. As a business thing, might be worthwhile for you of course to cut out the hassle with both new car negotiation and getting a fair price for your well used car.

I appreciate your posts demonstrating the potential longevity for the Niro. I doubt that many of your dear readers will keep their Niros for 100K+. IMO you have done your "duty"! It won't upset me. Your money, your call.

x2, good to know our Niro has potential to go the distance without an issue.

Yeah he offered me $8000 trade in. I know it's all a numbers game. KBB was like $5300. That doesn't take into account it needs a windshield, undercarriage damage from hitting the retread. I am probably a little high on the true cost of the new one. Might be more like $19500 out of pocket. If I bought it without a trade it would be easier to calculate, but I think I've got a pretty good deal. Sales manager jumped in right away because the new sales rep 1week in the job didn't know how to handle me. I also think my high mileage low year car will resell for them pretty good. Imagine getting into a 2 year old Niro for $8000-9000.

Thanks for the kind words. I guess everyone should be happy I didn't say I was going back to Prius. No doubt in my mind this car will go 200,000 mile.

So I assume you have a MY '17 like me :Without the stick shaker:
I hate that there is no way to fully disable that and I have a fear of letting the car resist or "fight" me for control at the steering wheel. However, note that I use smart cruise control, as a semi-autonomous form of driving my own car. The only real downside to getting a new Niro IMO.

I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.
