I made a huge mistake and I need your help!!

To make a long story short, I traded in my 2010 Camaro in for a 2014 Dodge Charger R/T and now I have buyers remorse to the point that I tried to go back and buy my Camaro back but they wanted twice as much as what I owed. I really do not know what to do. The Charger is nice and fast but it is a gas guzzler and I really dod not need four door at the moment. What do y'all think I should do they have my Camaro for about $3000 more than what I paid for it in 2010. What can I do I miss my Camaro like crazy!!!

I would evaluate why you made the swap to begin with. Maybe you'll remember why you pulled the trigger?

Was it because you wanted the V8? If so, of course its a gas guzzler, who cares? You knew that when you bought it.

I would take the mistake and make it a nice looking Charger. I love the new Chargers personally, and you can make a lot of nice mods to it.

Or you lose your ass in a reswap. Your choice...

You traded a V6 and would buy the same V6 again? If you want a camaro again get the refresh of the 2014... It's really growing on me I might have to trade mine in for an SS 2015 but I want to see the 2016 first...

Not much you can do..no cooling off unless you purchased that option. You can hope your financing falls through.

Otherwise, you'll just have to learn to like the charger.

You should have 3 days to back out of the deal. After that, forget about being remorseful and be glad you have a job that pays for such things.

Depends on state of residence. I hope OP resides in a state which allows cooling off.

A dodge charger R/T, I assume AWD? It'll grow one you. That would have been my 2nd choice if I hadn't gotten a Camaro.

If you still have a spare key for the Camaro, just go drive it off the lot...Maybe they won't notice....

Some dealers here give you a month to return the car.

I am wondering if someone would be willing to swap with me just car for car and take over payments but I'm guessing that would be pretty hard to find.

IMO, i wouldn't ever trade back down (which is what you'd be doing). If you don't like the Charger, keep it around, save up money, and then trade the charger in eventually for a SS.

Plus, i don't buy into tears for gas mileage.

I'm a little confused. they want 3k more for your car than you paid for it new in 2010? a 2010 LS camaro probably isn't worth but 12-15k. are you saying they're asking 15-18k for it? and what do you mean by "wanted twice as much as I owed" are you referring to the camaro or the charger? it would make things a lot easier if you gave some hard numbers. what did you pay for your camaro in 2010. how much did they give you on trade? how much did you owe (if any) on it when you traded. what did you pay for the charger? were you upside down? what would they give you for the charger?

withouth that it's pretty hard to give you options.

Well all I can say is, you're in a jam of your own doing and it's gonna cost you. You didn't know that the Charger was going to suck some gas? My other question is, if you liked your Camaro but wanted an upgrade (and don't need the ugly-ass rear doors)... why didn't you just get another Camaro?

Thank you.

Sure, it'd be interesting if there was a hybrid Camaro or Charger, but if you are interested in cars of this type in general, then gas mileage is either "decent", "tollerable", or "terrible". Regardless, it shouldn't really be a shock to anyone.

Well I bought the Camaro for $23,000 in 2010 and I put a pretty hefty down payment on it so by 2014 I only owed $7000 for it. When I bought the Charger the Msrp for the car was $31,900 but I bought for $25,000 with all the rebates that they had going on. They gave me $16,000 for the Camaro and now they want $19,900 for it. Here is the link to where my Camaro is at. http://www.lakenormanchrysler.com/us...19d90c7138.htm

My two cents;

Sounds like you've got financing on the Charger so you are going to be upside down I'd imagine. Just take a year to drive it and think about what you really want out of your car. By then we will know what the Gen 6 will look like and you can decide if you like it or not. Then start planning for your car that you really want. Then you can seek out that car and either trade in the Charger with some positive equity of look for a trade. Maybe someone with a young family and their Camaro doesn't work but a Charger would.

Don't be too harsh on yourself, we've all made a sale or trade we later regret. Learn from it, move on and in the end you'll end up with a car you want, maybe ZL1 ;-)

For example, cars I've owned that I wish I kept;
'69 Z/28
'70 RS/SS 396 Camaro
big Block Challenger
'78 Hurst edition Trans Am
Gremlin-X with a V8 and 4 speed, ugly but fast

So you see you're not the only one.

Thank you for all the kind words I am just trying to get people's opinion on what I should do. That Camaro had a lot of sentimental value to me. When I bought the Charger I thought that is what I wanted but after driving it for a couple of weeks I know that I made the wrong decision.
