    Rochester, NY. We actually just got a CarMax within the last month or so. King of Prussia wouldn't be far. I'll keep my eye out on CarMax's inventory.

    @my421 There are a few Volvo dealers in my area, so I've seem quite a few S60's, Never one quite like the one you linked to. with the silver looking trim under the doors and silver rear valance.

    RMY, here is one that sounds nice, if you can live with FWD. Has the tech package, so all the fancy safety stuff (BLIS, adaptive cruise), and bi-xenons.

    Though looking at the carfax, I see why it is so cheap. 3 separate accidents reported! wonder how they still put a CPO on it? may have all been minor, but still tainted.

    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!)

    I would hit the MINI COOPER at $18000--$19000. Not sure of myself though. My impression is that there isn't high demand for these JCWs.

    well, it is cheap relative to the silly prices dealers ask normally.

    missed that JCW. A black one with almost identical miles went through CA auction for $19,100. Others with even more miles were still around that $19k mark. Seems like their $21k price is them trying to get rid of it.

    I don't think they are fast movers. Maybe it's the color on this one, I don't know. I suspect pricing on a car like a JCW MINI is very regionally biased.

    Thanks all. The dealer has had it for over a month. Lack of a hole in the rood and the manual HVAC probably aren't increasing it's desirability to the average Mini buyer...

    Well the driver who might want to track his JCW wouldn't want a sun roof anyway, so you got that right. Even more of a niche was the MINI GT, with no back seat. No pretense there.

    Saw a 13 Highlander Hybrid LTD AWD, blk/blk , 13k miles. Any thoughts on what these are doing at auction? They are asking $41995.

  • nyccarguynyccarguy Stamford, CTPosts: 7,390

    I'd wait for @qbrozen obviously, but I'm going to guess somewhere in the $35K neighborhood. When the "new" 2014s came out, I saw dealer's around here advertising the 2013s for quite a while.

    @qbrozen

    What's the market for used 2012 Acura TL SH AWDs (with tech pkg) look like here in the northeast? Silver/Black - Black/Black (I know, very exciting color combos). I'm seeing some used ones pop up at non-Acura dealers in the $25K range with 30 - 40K miles on them.

    @qbrozen -- my friend just had his 2002 Porsche Boxster totaled. Very clean, a few bumper chips, 90,000 miles, tiptronic, no other special options I can think of. Very good service records. What's a decent payoff you think?

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,141

    '13 Highlander Hybrid Limited - averaging about $39k, so seems they want to move it.

    Acura - about $24-25k at the block. I'd be wary of those at $25k retail.

    Porsche - non-S, right? Hmmm... average would be about $9k-9500. Figure $12k fair retail.

    "If it's too good to be true, it probably is" I'd be wary of those at $25k retail.

    Thank-you

    Yep, $12K retail is just what I thought, too! thanks very much! Shifty.

    The responsible insurance company is AAA, and they play hardball, so we'll see.

    @qbrozen Thanks q; not a lot of local HH comps but the few I've seen seem higher, so that makes sense.

    @qbrozen said: Miata - black top and interior ain't good in So FL. I'm gonna go low on this and say it might see $7k at auction. So $9k should buy it.

    SC430 - dealer might give you $20k if feeling lucky/generous. Maybe a little less. Private party? well, miles are super low so I'd shoot for a premium. Ask $23,995 and go from there.

    Another lexus in Florida ... hey, so I know this person selling a super low mile SC430.... ;) Ok, the ES. Looks like one they bought at the Orlando auction back on 5/5 for $22,500. Can't say I know what a Lexus CPO costs, but let's say they've got $24... maybe $24.5k into it?? But who knows? They could have buried themselves, but that's not your concern. I think the $26k number is a pretty good one. But I suppose $27k isn't killing anyone, as long as you love it and keep it a long time. I was downsizing 3 cars to 2. Dealer offered 22K. Before I could bring 2nd car for appraisal my neighbor offered 23. I told my dealer that and he freaked - he'd already "sold" my SC. Ended up at 23.5 for the SC.
