You are going to get royally screwed over to be honest. If you are looking to trade in after such a short period of time.
I hope you don't have a loan right now or lease or anything like that. Otherwise I recommend bending over now cause your really going to be taking it. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
If you bought the car straight out. I still think you will be in a bit of trouble. Basically I think you will have paid approx $4,000 and drove it 6,000 miles.
Personally I would not sell the Elantra and wait about a year or two.
Assuming you bought the car less then a year ago and that you probably put the average couple grand up as a down payment. You are upside down in the car right now. This bassically means you owe more than the car is worth.

That's exactly what every dealer is gonna give you.
The only time you can really think about trading a car is 2-3 years after you bought it. That 's the only time you might be BREAKING EVEN on paid/value. Anytime before then you're going to owe a lot more then it's worth and if they do take the trade, they'll wrap it up into the new payments.
Meaning you're still paying for that car you traded in on top of your new car. A sure fire way to jack up your payments.
There's no tradein values on your car right now cuz' it's too new but if you go off the old elantra (which most dealers will do).
Current trade in 10,925
Figuring with TTL you owe probably 13500-14000 you're going to be at least 2k upside down which adds $2k more to the price of the vehicle you're buying. For every 1000 =20-25pymt. So it's going to add a minimum of $40 dollars to your payment but i doubt if anyone's going to give you that much on trade it.
