Needs tires, brake pads, some interior trim parts, etc.

KBB trade in is:......................$9,341 (very good cond.)
KBB private party is:.............$10,896 (very good cond.)
Edmunds trade in is:...............$8,578 (clean cond.)
Edmunds private party is:........$9,725 (clean cond.)
Cheapest on Autotrader is:....$10,999

I am very happy with a $12,000 check in less than an hour total.

Let me just take this one step further. I paid $17,999 4 years ago with no negotiation and a factory warranty.
A 2009 in excellent condition is worth over $17,000 in trade in according to KBB.

In other words, the truck I bought would be worth TWICE the difference between 2007 and 2009 when I bought it.

MSRP with my options was $27,000. I paid $17,999 with 17k miles and 1 year old.

SO...It was worth well over $20,000 when I bought it 1 year old for $17,999.

Great price when I bought it AND great price when I sold it back to them.

How many miles are on your truck now? Unless it has 200k miles, an 07 suburban 4x4 is worth way more than 10 or even 12k trade in.
