All im wondering is what mileage in YOUR opinion would be time to sell the car and consider getting a new one. Don't need smart ass answers just an opinion.
I think the question is a valid one. I had a very early 2009 so my situation was not identical to yours as the 2009s seemed to have more transmission issues. Mine was also lightly modded (downpipes, midpipe, catback, Cobb) so there were serious questions over whether Nissan would cover the warranty. At 3+ years and 18,000 miles I decided to sell. I loved the car and the decision was not an easy one but I do not regret it I just did not want to have to shell out the money to replace or repair a transmission in a 3 year old car.

Thank you. I have been debating this for a while now, basically procrastinating on when and how and for what price. In your opinion whats the best way to go about this? Sell privately or go through a dealership?

If you live in a state that credits your trade in price towards the sales tax liability on a new car, then your only question is whether you think you'd be able to sell it above the amount the dealer offers you plus what you save in tax.

I traded it in on my new car. I got 60K for it and as you know in Pennsylvania the 6% sales tax savings brought the deal to 63.6K. I could have possibly made 2 or 3 thousand more by selling it privately with the mods I had and the Volk wheels but this way I eliminated any aggravation from a dissatisfied buyer.
