    What do you guys think about trading in 2013sx...

    Just curious what you guys think about trading in a 2013 sx with 100k trouble free miles for a 2019 ex with premium. The biggest things I was looking for was Android auto and the smart cruise control to help with my daily nightmare commute. Looks like the decontented a few things like power folding mirrors and heated rear seats. But it has the latest safety tech and better mileage. It's also 100k newer.

    I'm curious would people just keep the 2013 or if buying a 2019 upgrade to the sx? If so why? Or even go for another brand for Android auto and smart cruise. Thanks!!!

    I've been in your shoes about wanting to upgrade and I keep telling myself to wait.

    - Next calendar year should bring an all new Optima and with the details we've been getting about the new Sonata, things looks pretty good for the Optima since they've always shared powertrains. So maybe the new 2.5 T pushing 300 hp with rumored all wheel drive and an 8 speed auto. This would satisfy the power requirement you have on your current SX. The 2019 EX gets you a clunky DCT and a much less powerful engine.

    - Your engine is covered pretty much until the wheels fall off so there's no need to fret about engine issues.

    - Those incentives look really good but I'd hate to have a new car and then next year something awesome comes out and it wouldn't be financially wise to trade again. And yeah they're always introducing new features but I think the 2021 Optima will be the one to get. I'm hoping at least.

    Hah thanks for the feedback. We need a trade in itch support group.

    Even worse for me is I just bought 4 new snow tires and rims! And the 19 optima ex uses 17 inch tires!

    Not to mention we just paid cash for a loaded 2019 Sorrento ex with touring package so I'm kinda out of money for awhile. The $5000 bonus cash was too hard to pass up when the 11.5 year old Jeep ac gave up the ghost and was big bucks to get fixed.

    I will say used sedan prices have spiked recently due to the recent flooding problems destroying many vehicles.

    Definitely smart to keep waiting but was just wondering what everyone thought.
