What to do?

I bought a 2014 LS camaro on May 26th of this year. I have put about 2500 dollars of mods on it but, I had a 2011 2ss/Rs that had a lot of power. I didn't buy an SS because I have a 13 Denali with the 6.2 and gets bad gas mileage. Plus the funds are low. Anyway thinking about trading it in on a used SS. Just a little worried about buying a used car. New with warranty and a V6 or Used SS? Maybe flip a coin?

If funds are low stay with what you have and stop buying cars for a while.

I'd have to agree with RockerBox. If the funds aren't there don't make things harder on yourself. Keep what you have until the funds are there and then make a trade. Enjoy what you have though! A V6 is plenty power for someone who doesn't track their car.

Maybe you should quit your job to allow more time to make the proper decision. That would be my advice....and don't forget about the new Corvettes.....really nice cars.

Everybody is right bout not spending more money. I use my overtime money to pay for my car and everything that goes in and on it and do not takeaway from my household funds. Just was thinking out loud. At 51 I have a play toy and was just wondering bout making the switch, thanks for the input.

Huh? I don't track my car and the first thing I did was drop some coin on headers and a supercharger for the SS. Grinning is winning, I think he misses the rush.

Personally I would stay with what you have. You stated "funds are low". Even if you got the exact payment on an SS, you still have the expense of sales tax and title fees. Would probably cost at least $800-$1,000 just to switch cars (assuming payment is the same). Keep what you have, pay down bills and maybe get a 6th Gen when they come out. Just my opinion.

I'd keep what you have.

You're going to get hosed on trade-in, taxes, and the mods you put in to your V6, plus a thorough hosing on whatever retail price you end up paying for a new or used SS.

I'd take a real hard look at why you're unhappy, and if buying another car is really going to fix that.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't being a dick. Just some friendly advice. If you want to do the swap then go for it.

If your low on funds I wouldn't be out car shopping, especially since you make take a hit trading the V6 in for another SS, I would hang onto it until your in a better position financially

I myself got into some trouble trading my 2010 in for the 13 payment wise, just make sure you can afford it!

Good Luck!

Overtime is nice, but don't ever count it as a continuing thing. It should be going towards savings or paying off debt. Sounds like if you are happy with the V6 you should stick with it,

stay with what you got. You can have just a much fun with a v/6 and maybe establish a credit history. You may want to buy a home sometime.

Not trying to be hurtful or judgmental...I just never understood this trend I quite often see here on Camaro 5. The trend I am referring to is the constant trading up and down, in and out and over and over all within what just seems months. I can't imagine there is anything being made each trade...seems like a loss every time the trade happens.

Maybe I am old fashioned, but when I buy a car I really make sure it is something I want and then I keep it until it is run to the ground.

I traded in my SS for the Denali bout a year and a half ago. I traded in my 2011 Ultra Classic because I have arthritis real bad in my hands and couldn't ride anymore. I wanted a camaro again so I got an LS because what they gave me for it and the price of the car was only about 7K difference. I flew without my oxygen mask a few times when I was in the
AirForce but I'm not that crazy to trade in a SS for an LS

Unfair comparison of the 6.2 engines. The Denali has less power camed diferently and the vehicle weighs about a thousand pounds more and the gear ratios are different. Do what you want You are going to anyway.
