    crosstrek - very very steady prices across the country on these. Unfortunately, you have a higher-mileage example. ~$23k.

    stick - what a dealer would have to say about it is very different than retail road, of course. You'd see a grand, tops. on a trade. Try $3495 and see what happens.

    @beofgod

    Why are you looking to dump your Crosstrek Hybrid so soon? You want to trade it in on a cheaper Impreza 2.5i? There are still new 2014s out on dealer lots. You are going to get hammered by depreciation.

  • Tell him where're your located. It does matter. With such a new vehicle, plan to bend over, big time.

    Thanks, add zip 21144...

    That's why I asked here first, I don't want to pass out at the dealership!

    I will probably go used 05-10 Forester XT under 100k under $15G's...I may have to wait a bit longer to trade depending on my payoff...

    $3,495 was about what I was thinking. $3,900 might be pushing it. Once you get below $3,500, you got a lot of cash buyers and a lot of crappy cars.

    Someone shows up with 33 Benjamins, and we can do business. Much less, I get grumpy and go all Andre stashing them in the back yard.

    Rexamus, you need to also tell qbrozen what part of the world you're located in. It does make a difference.
  • suydamsuydam Posts: 986
    I think in any part that would sell in about 2 seconds.
  • 2007 Honda Civic EX Sedan with 46,250 miles located in Columbus Ohio area. Tires @ 95%. All maintenance done by the dealer. some touched-up scratches but very clean otherwise. Looking for possible trade-in value on 2015 Forester 2.5i Premium. What would a reasonable value be for the car?
  • explorerx4explorerx4 Central CTPosts: 9,738
    @suydam, rezamus still needs to know what it's worth.
  • I would like to trade in a 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L with NAV. 47,000 miles. Located in Southeast PA. Great condition no dents or scratches. What would be a good trade-in price. Going to buy a New Jeep GC. Thank you.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,440
    Camry - $10k-$10.5k

    civic - low low miles makes for a very tough valuation. A couple have been $5500-$6k while a couple of others have brought $9k. That's quite a difference. So its going to depend on the dealer and how they feel about it. I would see what their offer is. You could probably advertise it yourself for $8900 and sell it in a heartbeat.

    Pilot - in PA, I'm going to assume its AWD. Somewhere in the $22k-$23k range.

    It's always something interesting in my world, and as my office increasing looks like a used car lot, I have these two to add:

    1993 Chevrolet Caprice Classic LS
    Black over grey leather
    99,600 miles
    This was the top of the line Caprice in the day, so it has dual power seats, am/fm cassette, COLD a/c, alloy wheels
    305 V8, 4 speed auto
    There's a drag mark down both bumpers on the right side, and the bumpers are faded everywhere after 20 years of the south Georgia sun, but otherwise it looks exceptional for a 20 year old vehicle.
    Retail road, obviously, and this is one I can park in certain neighborhoods and sell inside of about 20 minutes given the type of vehicle it is.

    I'm thinking $2-3000 on this without much trouble at all.

    The other, which is tempting as a fun second car:

    2007 Mercedes SLK 350
    pearl white over tan leather (it feels like real leather over MBTex)
    AMG Sport pack, with 17" wheels
    3.5 V6, auto (which I think is the 7Geartronic)
    66,700 miles
    6 CD changer in the glove compartment
    dual auto climate
    dual power seats with driver memory
    It needs tires badly, and a really, really good detail, as it has been sitting for many months under a cover and a car port, so it has a musty smell inside.
    It runs very well, and looks fairly well preserved. One elderly owner, who used it to run around St. Simons Island, and still has the plate frame and keychain from the Porsche/Lexus/Benz dealer in Jacksonville, Florida.

    It's been neglected a bit lately, but it still hits me around $15,000, but I'll defer to the experts on both.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,440
    yeah, I'd take a stab at $2995 asking and $2500 taking on the Caprice. Maybe even as low as $2k if it sits too long.

    $15k trade-in on the Benz is about right. But for you to sell it? Clean it up, put on new shoes, list it for $19995 and kick it to the curb at the first $18k that comes by.

    Q, thanks for the service you provide here, and I am going to ask for a little assistance. I am looking at a 2014 Gray Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring which is at a Honda dealer in Central IL. Just under 7,000 miles, loaded with about everything including navigation. Just wonder on approximate trade value, to see where we might end up, now that the 2015 Mazdas are at dealers. They are currently asking $27,995. Thanks for any help.

    They are about $25k. So that's actually a good price.
    But, of course, that begs the question: Why buy used? Per Truecar, I could get a 2015 AWD GT w/ Tech package for just under $30k. Even less if I qualify for any incentives ($750 trade-in bonus cash or $500 loyalty, for example).

    Q,
    Brought my 2002 Explorer in for oil change/tire rotation.
    They came back with a laundry list of items it needed.
    Total was close to 3k.
    Not ever going to do all that, but I might be able to get away with 8-900 to limp it along.
    Would like to keep is another 2 years, if possible.
    In the last year, I put about 4k miles on it and that is about what I would expect to put on it per year.
    I saw this on the lot and it caught my attention.
    monacoford.com/Hartford-CT/For-Sale/Used-Certified/Ford/Explorer/2013-XLT-Blue-SUV/29575551/
    2013, XLT, AWD, leather, sunroof, nav, 20's, plus some other stuff. Certified, just under 10k miles.
    Asking price is 33,250. It said it was a great price on the windshield. :)
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,440
    $28k-$29k at the block. Doesn't sound bad for CPO. $32,500 sounds better.

    Thanks Q. Agreed, we will have to look at the new CX-5's also.
