    Either way, that isn't much depreciation off the $22.5 MSRP from 4 years ago.

    no, its not. You'd think they'd have better lease deals. My wife asked me yesterday to check what the deals on the countryman are. Not all that favorable, IMHO.

    Looking at your hardtop, for example, the lease offer projects $12,395 residual after just 3yrs/30k. Should be a good bit higher if 4-yr-old models are bringing that much. Also should mean folks with these leases have equity in the end.

    Wow - that didn't take long, and they weren't kidding about it being "line ready":

    Q - you were right. They've priced it at $15,787.

    Hey Q - what do you figure the dealer has into this car:

    2010 Audi TT Quattro Prestige package (includes navigation) 18,000 miles Black on beige interior

    At an Infiniti dealer here north of Denver, so no CPO.

    They're asking $29,990 - I figured trade would have been around $25k.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Only comp this year had 26k miles and got $24800 in PA.

    What is your trade-in estimate for the current value of a 2011 Mercedes 350ML with 36K miles. The main options it has other than what comes standard is the Premium Package 01 and heated front seats.

    Thanks

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    there is a bit of a spread on these. Depending on location and dealer, they might feel safe in that $25-26k range.

    Thanks for the prompt response.

    I have a 2008 Volvo S80 with NAV, heated seats front and rear (front seats also ventilated) and 61K miles.

    congrats.

    What I meant to say was, what do you think I could get from a dealer with a 2008 Volvo S80 with NAV, heated seats front and rear (front seats also ventilated) and 61K miles. I would like to use it as a trade in. I am hoping for $10,000.00 (very good condition), what are your thoughts?

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    Which engine? Any past or present damage? What part of the country? What color combo?

  • damntreedamntree Posts: 5

    S80 3.2L, Ice White (Sand Stone Beige interior), Sport Package, Climate park Assist Front and Rear, Volvo Navigation. Yes one accident and everything was repaired perfectly (I checked online and this reduces the price maybe $10,300). I am the only owner.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    but how bad was the accident? how much $$ in damage? Repainting a bumper is totally different from replacing 3 body panels and 2 airbags. It will affect the value.

    Miles are low, color should be good in any part of the country. If we're talking a resprayed bumper, your number isn't unreasonable. If metal has been repainted and the carfax shows it, you could have a tough time ahead.

    Hi, what kind of trade value can I expect for a 2012 4Runner SR5 4WD with 25K miles in Blizzard Pearl with Convenience Pkg, Cargo Deck, Leather, and Alarm? No accidents or damage and all service records.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    About 27-28k

  • virgiesmomvirgiesmom Posts: 57

    What can I expect for a trade: a 2007 Toyota Sequoia SR5 V8 4.7L 4WD with 27K miles (yep, only 27K), Desert Sand Mica, cloth, no accidents or damage? Garage kept and owner is ocd about keeping it detailed, 3K on tires SW VA 24018 zip. Looking to get a new or late model Tundra. Thanks for the help.... Virgie

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    Well I certainly have no comps for that. Lowest of late was 62k miles that hit $14800. Why not sell it yourself? Dealer is prob gonna hit you at like 15k.

  • virgiesmomvirgiesmom Posts: 57
    Thanks for the rapid comeback. I was looking at the $21 - 22K range. Private party might be the way. Didn't want the hassle.
    Might run it by a dealer to test the water.
  • chow3chow3 Posts: 37

    Ok. So I have a 2005 jeep wrangler unlimited. Soft top, stick, 124,000 mile. I have owned since new and it is in great shape but could use a new top and shocks. Thought I would keep a long time but thinking of selling to buy a roadster for the wife's 50th. I am in south florida. Any ideas!

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    Tough one. Could be as low as $7k.

    Do you think a dealer would give me $4K for a 2003 Mini Cooper S, clean, 6 spd, dark green with black top, fully loaded with options (except NAV), 111K miles? Has a few chips on front fascia and hood, some road rash on wheels, new tires--very nice 5-footer.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,220

    I'm going to say its unlikely. Really depends on the dealer. If its the type that would put it on their lot, they should be able to make that happen if you are buying from them. If a dealer that only wants to wholesale it, you might have a tough time getting over $3k-3500.

    Although, you are in cali, right? And with a glass roof? So that might help matters tremendously (although I'd think the black top isn't the best choice).

  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,583

    yep, California and glass roof. Hmmm...I don't think I'd trade it at $3K. Good to know, though.

  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,638

    Heck, for 4000.00 I might buy it IF you deliver it!

    Knowing you, it's been well taken care of.

  • stickguystickguy Posts: 14,295

    it's only 800 miles.

    He just might.

    2013 Acura RDX (wife's), 2007 Volvo S40 (when daughter lets me see it), 2000 Acura TL (formerly son's, now mine again), and new Jetta SE (son's first new car on his own dime!)

  • chow3chow3 Posts: 37

    Thanks for the update on the jeep. For 7k I think I would keep it. Maybe try private party route and see what it brings. It really is a great beach/weekend ride.

  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,583

    Well the trade was based on the convenience factor (as you well know). It would make a nice down on a new, or newer one. I need to drive the 2014s first.

    q - turning the tables a bit. My sister wants to buy a car and I'm wondering if we can use your knowledge to figure out a good starting point for negotiations.

    2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe. 41K miles, premium and nav. Not CPO.

    Dealer is asking $25K. Sister wants to get $500 off - I'm thinking she should start at $23K and go up from there.
