I wanted to trade it in for a midsize suv or a pickup or maybe even a g8 just cuz of the incentives, i admit i dont know much on how these deals work but they were adverstising crew cab silverados for 27k and equinox's for 20k (prolley 09 clearouts) plus the $1000 gm loyalty is kinda a little incentive. Basically just tired of having a basic boring vehicle with little utility (big trunk but still run out of space on trips) and was hoping to upgrade into something...not so basic that i would actually enjoy and would suit my needs a little better. As for the credit i assume i have good credit but again its another area im unfamilar with . I mean even though the car would be a upside down trade in, wouldnt you get it back and then some with the current offers?
(this is all in canadian dollars btw)

Yes the deals are there and if you feel you must get something else then by all means do it.
The amount that you're upside down will be tacked onto the new purchase loan.
You should familiarze yourself with your credit so you know where you stand by going to Equifax (online) and buying your report for about $20. Yuo can learn about your score and what you should do to improve it. The better your credit report and the score then the better rates and deals you'd qualify for.
