I'm planning to trade by '2005 subaru w/70,000 miles (no car loan on this vehicle) for a '2007 GMC Acadia. Should I trade my subaru now w/70,000 or drive her till it reaches 100,000 miles and hold off on possibly having a high car loan note?
Taking on a new loan note is a personal financial decision.
Here are some points to consider:
Above-average first-year reliability for the new Subaru Tribeca makes
Subaru the only automaker to have its entire lineup of cars recommended
by Consumer Reports. All Subaru's except the WRX STi have better-than-average predicted reliability.
The Acadia is a highly rated new GM vehicle and it comes with one year of OnStar which from a safety point of view is a great advantage to owning this vehicle. Be sure to ask the GM dealer if there are special incentives for your 2007 Acadia to help get the best price and finance deal.
