Trade In A Gas Guzzler

Not so fast! Often, it is cheaper to drive an older car with lower MPG than take on a car payment.

We understand that times are difficult right now. We would like to help you make an informed decision by calculating the cost of gas for your current vehicle so that you can see if keeping it vs. the cost of a new or used car payment makes sense. Simply answer the questions below and you can quickly see if trading in your vehicle makes sense today. You can even calculate your cost if gas prices increase.
