Isn't the car in Wayne NJ? It's not that far of a drive, no need to fly. I have heard people getting an appraisal from Carmax first then going to the dealership to negotiate on the trade in AFTER settling on the price of the car. Only disadvantage here is that the nearest carmax from Wayne NJ is either in PA or MD.
I don't know about MD but certain states allow for a tax deduction on your trade in so that's potentially another $2000 for your trade.
