Traded an '00 Buick Regal for my '02 Z66
My '02 for my '04 2500
My '04 for my '07 LT2
Traded in my '02 North Face Edition for a Trailblazer lease (? :E: i? know but the payments were 1/2 as much)
Turned in the Trailblazer 2 months early to get the '07.? The problem is I went from the NFE to a LT1.? Not may bells and whistles but still MUCH better than the Trailblazer.
Traded an 2005 Ford Excursion
for a 2005 Z71 in Sept. 2005
traded an 01 Hyundai Accent with 157K miles for my 02 Z66 in Oct 04
Sold my 2000 Silverado Z66 regular cab short bed with 111,000 miles. Loved the truck, but needed more room than a regular cab. Should pick up my 2008 Avalanche on 9/14!
Traded in a whole lot of

Traded a 1995 Cadillac Deville Concours and a 1998 Izusu Hombre for the 07.

Had to fill it with gas and pay an extra $100 to get them to take it.

I traded a 2000 Bonneville SSEi..... loaded! Fun car but I tried to replace a '98 Grand Prix GTP with it and it wasn't the same.
I needed a "truck" for all the home improvement things and couldn't be any happier now.
Traded a 2000 GMC for my 2002 AV, traded my 2002 AV which had 35000 miles for my 2004 Av. then traded my 2004 Av which had 27000 miles for my 2007 AV and my wife traded her 2000 jimmy which had 57000 for my old 2004 AV. which made me happy because my old AV is back home.
I traded in a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ 79k miles.   I really liked the Jeep - I had a 1995 before that - but wanted more cargo room and the ability to haul more stuff occasionally.

So far I really like the AV.   The only negative so far is the gas mileage.   I expected it to be a little worse but so far it is a lower than I expected.
A 2006 Chevy HHR. I thought of trading but got more by selling to an individual. I loved the gas mileage (up to 33 mpg) but had my heart set on an Avalanche so I could tow my camper, which I haven't done yet.  Overall though, I'm happy with my AV!
