@@mc78, when I priced out a used 2014 XLE, I used the 4,735 miles that you gave in your post a couple of days ago. (I'm just looking at numbers, didn't actually get one).
@mc78, I priced out a "used" XLE in "clean" condition for my zip code and came up with $33,154 dealer retail. We don't have a CPO price for this model, but that usually adds ~$1,500 to the price. So your dealer isn't too far off from the average. You're using a trade-in number, but dealers don't like to sell using a trade-in price.
If you use outstanding for the condition, the TMV jumps to $34,408.
One thing you can try is to tell the dealer what your top number is and if they can't sell the Highlander at that price, you'll just buy new from your local MD dealer (like Fitzmall). Take @dsoy1998's advice in other words.
Can Buying a Demo Car Save You Money?
The "real" problem is indoor air quality; even well vented gas stoves dump some formaldehyde into the house. (link) It's especially a concern if you have kids. That's another reason not to build a house or buy new construction - better to have one that's had a year or three to outgas. As much as I love textiles, no wall to wall carpet for me thanks.
And - we could say the same thing about buying new cars. :D
Are those the materials where the warm tires leave prints on them from sitting? Do you need to put tiles between the tires and floor?
Good question - didn't I read somewhere that just turning your tires can rub the paint off?
