Thanks guys. I have until aug 8th to sell to carmax. I am going to explore two other places like carmax before then.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4-dr sedan
blue (a metallic they called tidal wave pearl), gray cloth interior
No alloys, no hole in the roof, single CD...
Interior is in good shape, exterior just a modest dent near the right side of the deck lid (got whacked with an errant weed-whacker), paint is good otherwise.
Tires about 50% worn
Brakes 25% worn, maybe less.
Maintenance up to date, including timing belt
What say the experts on trade side or private party?

All things considered, I'd think you'd get hit at around $2k-2500 trade.
Private party? Depends on how fast you want to cut it lose. I'd probably go for $4995 and kick it to the curb for anything over $4k.

We special-ordered our Forester so I know what that feels like!
I special ordered my 3 Series so that I was able to get a limited-slip differential as well as avoid getting stck with a hole in the roof. My wife is not as picky and her CPO 5 Series, X3, and 3 Series have suited her fine.

Got $13,200 from a place similar to carmax.
I was told by both carmax and this place that replacing a rear quarter panel is considered frame damage according to the guidelines they use for appraising.

Didn't think I could squeeze too much more from private party with full disclosure of the accident that happened.
Probably would have got a bit more money, but not worth the hassle for me.

I have 4 months left on my lease. There are some great deals right now on several appealing cars. Is it realistic to consider a dealer taking me out of the remainder of my current lease in order to move a new car? Basically, is my car worth more in trade than it's buyout value?
Location: Long Island, NY
Year/Make/Model: 2010 Cadillac SRX Luxury
Body Style: Crossover SUV
Engine: 3.6L V6
Mileage: 31,000 (39K permitted on 39 mo lease)
Color: Grey Flannel Metallic (dark grey), Titanium (grey) interior
Major Options: Luxury pkg, touch screen NAV
Excellent, no accidents, dings, or scratches
Tires - original, est. 25% remaining
Brakes - original, est. 25% remaining (no sqeaks)
Maintenance - all performed by dealer as scheduled
Other: No prior damage/insurance claims, repaints, etc.
There are 4 payments remaining at $673 each. Purchase option at end of lease is $22,928.

Its very very possible. The values are a bit varied, but a few with more miles than yours have crossed the $26k mark at auction, so I would think if a dealer wants your business bad enough, they should be willing to buy out your car at the $25,620 you owe on it.
Just make sure that's what they do and they don't go sneaking your remaining payments into your new lease cap cost.
