Selling My SRT8 After One Year!

So time has come! After almost 15000 miles, I'm bored with the car, tired of all the gas that it drinks, I'm selling it! Especially with the new 8-speed coming out in 2014, the value of these 2012 SUVs will decrease even more! The time is now, I believe.

Dealer's top offer was $50K, what do you think? Fair? KBB is only showing $51K with the mileage I have on the car for an "excellent" condition which it is.

I think I'm doing it!

2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster LP700-4
2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (SOLD)
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 (Daily Driver) (SOLD)
2011 Mercedes Benz E550 Coupe (Daily Driver (SOLD)
2013 Jeep Patriot Sport (Daily Driver)
2008 Jeep Patriot Sport (Fiancée Driver)

It looks Great in the Garage, but you will be getting a fair deal on trade in, but I want to know what your getting next?

Plan to get something more practical as DD for now until the 2014 edition of GCSRT8 comes out! Nothing fancy!

Once the 2014 releases, then my 2012 will be even less value. Also, if I wait, more miles will be piled on also will render my current SRT8 less value and I have to spend $2000 on new tires.

Time is now, the car won't worth more than now if I want to get the most trade in value!

Pretty much!

I will, however, miss the heated steering wheel!

It's surprising how little some jeep dealers know about product in the pipeline. U can use this to your advantage

Good luck.
Is the 8-speed the only reason you're going to the '14?
Personally, I'm waiting till the 6.2 is available, but I keep being drawn to the tt cls63. I like it.

You know, the main reason I'm getting rid of my 2012 is really the high octane gas consumption as a DD. If the 8 speed will have better gas mileage, then that will be that much more attractive!
