    uhhh... well, by my incredible power of deduction, I'm going to assume this is a Santa Fe.

    about $20k

    without navi, I can't imagine they stepped over $21k on it. I suppose they could convince me they hit 22k to get a deal done.

    So its safe to say they are making some margin when they ask $30k for it :blush:

    In that case, more like $18k.

    Miles are nice and low. I'm thinking $12k.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,613
    well, let's see... as a trade, it is in that $28k zip code. Maybe 29k on a push if it is super nice and wouldn't take much to certify.

    Anyway, put it through cert, add the warranty, shine it up, and they might be in it for $32-33k. So $36k really ain't bad. $35k would be better. Again, though, it better be perfect.

    She agreed to $4,800 - tires really did need
    to be replaced.
    Sounds like a fair deal.
    Thank you for your help!

    What did she get to replace it? We CCBA-types have to know! :P

    she asked for my impressions...

    Buy it out and donate to the kyfdx@edmunds charity? A nice tax write-off... :)

    For a law school classmate (sure, that was 15 years ago now, but anyway)

    2005 Lexus LX470
    4.7 V8 gas, 4WD, Auto
    69,xxx miles
    pearl white over tan leather
    These only come one way, loaded to the gills: nav, backup camera, slider, chrome factory 18s

    Beautiful shape, always detailed, Florida truck all its life, good shoes, looks like it could be brand new. No hits, runs, errors, paintwork, nothing.
    This was a second car, and she's decided to cut it from the herd because she likes her primary car better, which is a (C221) CL550.

    Located in St. Petersburg, Florida.

    The miles are low, and that's why I need help. There aren't any of these out there with miles under 90,000 or more, and those are listed in the mid 20s. She's thinking mid 30s, which I think is high, so what's it worth?

    Probably will be a private sale, and for some strange reason it interests me, despite the fact that I've sworn off SUVs.

    mid 30s is nuts. I've got one example that went through auction, listed in above average condition, with just 46k miles, and that brought $23,900. An average with 84k hit $19750. So figure somewhere in the middle of those lies this car as a trade.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'm guessing a private party sale would be closer to mid 20s on the absolute top end? But somewhere $23ish would be fair for everybody?
  • Hello wise people!
    Need to be brought back in from the side of the pool. I've always wanted the cayenne but never could afford the price tag, however I have seen a couple 2006 for 1500-1700 grand and suddenly my eyes lite up. I currently have a Mercedes c class 2004 wagon 18-23 mph. Like it for the ability to bring my 2 huskies along. The family car is a 2004 x5 and the cargo space is limited when I bring the dogs along. So would it be foolish to trade in the wagon and buy a 2006
    I'm torn as might tell.(x5 is the wife"car)

    Looking for some color on this as I'm nearing lease-end:

    Bay area

    2011 Audi A3 2.0T S-tronic

    29k miles

    Premium Plus

    Ibis White on Black

    Open Sky Roof

    Had front right fender replaced by factory certified body shop. Not sure if that means it can't be certified. Thanks.

    This all depends on the Cayenne & how well it has been cared for since 2006. A customer of mine has an '05 V6 Cayenne with 180,000 miles on it & still runs amazingly well. Be aware that Csyennes are very heavy. They chew through brakes & tires like nobody's business. Porsche parts are expensive (even more so than other German lux brands like MB & BMW).

    2001 Prelude Type SH, 2011 Pilot EX-L 4WD, 2015 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium

    Anyone have any thoughts on this A3?

  • corvettecorvette United StatesPosts: 4,199
    I'm confused by the units of measure. $1,500.00-$1,700.00? $15,000.00-$17,000.00? Or "1500 to 1700 grand," which would be $1,500,000.00-$1,700,000.00? Are we talking US dollars, Swiss francs, Euros...?

    Then, there's the C-class which is stuck in an endless loop at 18 to 23 miles per hour, which is also confusing. If the original poster meant MPG, then it's unlikely a Cayenne will achieve anywhere near the same figures as the C-class.

    What exactly are you looking for here? "Color"???

    The topic of this particular sub-forum is "trade-in values", did you want someone to tell you how much your car is worth as a trade-in? Qbrozen will be along in a bit and tell you how much they are going for at auction, which will give you a good idea of how much the dealer will buy it for.

    But you need to be patient, he does this for no recompense, as a public service you might say.
