I won an car!! But i have questions..
I really don't want to say from what sweeps quite yet, but I'm wondering about what to do.

Has anyone here ever won a car and possibly traded it at the dealership for another type? This one is a little larger than I'd like, but of course if there is no option I'm keeping it because my husband needs a new car.

So, please, if you've won a vehicle - how did it turn out??



****See my post #94 to see which sweeps I won!!***

****SEE POST 103 FOR MY UPDATE****

I won a 2006 Mustang Convt. on "The-Price-Is-Right" however my state did not have any 2006 left in the state of AK and asked if I wanted to waite until Sept or Oct and get a 2007 version. So, we asked Santa Monica Ford if we could upgrade to a 2006 Mustang GT and they said yes. However had to pay extra to the car delearship that we got the car from as Santa Monica Ford had to replace the dealership in Alaska with a GT and not a Convert.

We did not even ask if we could trade it in for a different vehicle.

Good Luck!

See My Wins

But congrats!! Awesome win!

first-ask for cash option, then you can buy what you want. Otherwise, before we were in a recession, many people have sold back to the dealer. the down side of this is that it is a 'used car' when you sell it back. When I won my RX-8, the dealer said keep it for awhile if you want, and have some fun-it won't effect the price much. I ended up selling it privately after 6 months on autotrader.com. Congrats to you!

Advice
I won a motorcycle and a car. Both times sold them back to the dealer. You have to ask but ask as if you might be taking it. Don't let on that you really want the cash or they will offer you a low low amount. They will have to title it in your name but you just sign it right over to them. You dont even have to take it off the lot. The dealer will see they are going to make $$ off it so they will probably do it. Depends on stock of their lot. We had to go to a third dealer who wanted to keep it because they were low on that model anyway.

Bike was worth 11Gs and got 8Gs for it. Car was worth 32Gs and got 25Gs for it.

Just to let you know...
I've been sweeping for 5 years and never won a HOF. A few months ago I told my husband that after all this time that I was due for a vehicle win, since I've never won one. I never thought in a million years that I would have won one. So, just goes to show you...never give up!!!

My husband thinks that it may be possible to get the car we won's dealer to trade with another brand car's dealer. I've never heard of this done. Anybody?
