If the 2007 TC comes out with heated seats, would you trade your 06 in for that. If i was you, I would keep your car. If you still want to trade-in your 05 TC just be careful. They will most likely try to screw you on a trade-in. You also need to run the value of your car on KBB is always a little high on the true market value of your car. I have trade-in 4 cars in the last 4 years. I have only lost money once, which was only $200 dollars. When I traded in my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500, it had $4000 worth of hail damage, that they did not notice. When I traded in my 2001 Dodge Neon, it needed new brakes and rotors. They did not drive it, but just started it.

Another way to run up the value of your car is to call every Scion dealership in the 200-300 mile area. Tell them that you plan on trading in your 05 Scion TC for a 2006. Tell them that you live about 300 miles away, and you was wanting to know if you could send them some pictures of the vehicle via e-mail, for a trade-in value for your car. I would say that 75% of the dealerships will do this for you. Then, simply tell the next dealership what you was offered and see if they could give you a higher number. Make sure not to tell them what the other dealership offered until you heard their figure. Sometimes it will be a better number. Then you can use this number as the new benchmark. This got me from $9000 trade-in on my truck, to $10,500 on a trade-in. It only took about a week.
