Another perk of trading the car in is tax savings. You may get a little less price wise, but you only pay tax on the difference in sale price. It's not always a deal breaker on a car that's worth ~10-12k, but it's something to think about. Plus, if you find the car you like it's always easier to trade it in and walk away with the car you want on the spot. Less headache trying to sell yours first. You can always go to carmax first, their offer will be good for 30 days. They don't always give you the best purchase offer and will discount your cars value with any non-oem parts. It'll give you another number to use as a bargaining chip when you're negotiating your trade in value with a perspective dealership though.
