    At 123 days on the lot, they must be choking on that thing.

    That might explain why they want to unload it.

    I have a 2009 TL with the GPS package. Black/black.
    62.5k miles. The standard drive. Perfect maintenance.
    In very good/excellent physical appearance - will have it buffed and detailed before listing it to deal with clear coat scratches, etc.
    The drivers seat cover is separating barely on the seat, left and right rear corners. (I.e., I see a thin line of white showing).
    Can take pictures and show that, as well as the car if desired.

    Currently the dealership service told me I should change the drive belt, as I am in a hot climate (NV) and they recommended that at 60k miles.
    Will alert buyers to this fact, and let the new owner deal with that as they see fit.
    Everything else is fine (and as far as I know, the drive belt is fine. At least, no problems with it while driving that I can discern).

    Interested in opinions as to what price I can get for this.
    NOTE PLEASE - I do not want another car - I will not be replacing this car.
    But I guess a dealer purchase price of my car will give me a bottom line.
    I'm mainly interested in what I can get from a private buyer.

    Thank you.

    @unpackhum,
    Belt also might to be replaced due to age.
    Not sure what 'the standard drive' means.
    Just in case, post your general location.

    Black over black in nevada likely explains the seat issues. By standard, I assume you mean FWD. By gps, do you mean Tech trim? If so, you’re looking at maybe $7500 trade, possibly $8500-$9k from carvana/vroom, and $10k’ish private party. But, given the low miles, you could start at $11,995 and see what happens.

    Those Acuras still had a timing belt. Probably due for that due to being 10+ years old, if it hasn't already been done.

    Interior/Exterior Condition?

    Any accidents?

    Any paint work done?

    How much tread is left on those tires?

    "Black over black in nevada likely explains the seat issues"
    Good news for me on the seat. I was seeing tissue that had gotten jammed into the rear of the driver's seat on both sides - I had glanced at it (I normally keep the seat covered with a towel) and thought I was seeing a break in the upholstery.
    The seat is fine it turns out.

    I don't see any other specifics on the drive. Does that mean as you suspected it is FWD?
    Does that stand for Front Wheel Drive, and the other possibility is AWD (All Wheel Drive)?

    This NISMO was a corporate vehicle out of TN; I don't know if it went to an external auction or a Nissan only auction(like BMW sometimes does IIRC). The price still seems high, however.

    The phrase “automatic NISMO” makes angels lose their wings.

    It crossed the block at $35,200.

    Thanks! As I said in the CCBA topic, next week I'll be in northern KY for a meeting. I may leave early and look at a 2019 370Z NISMO; it's a Nissan corporate vehicle. My wife really likes it but it's an automatic, which I think just doesn't suit a Z Car. Plus, I suspect it can't match a ZF 8HP. Oh well, can't hurt to look. I keep hoping an aggressively priced CPO M2 will turn up, but that's an extreme long shot.

    For a lady I work with. Looking to buy 2018 Hyundai Kona SEL AWD, 14,800 miles, white, moonroof (Tech package maybe?) at a New Hampshire Toyota dealer. Carfax says personal lease.
    Looking to trade 2013 Hyundai Accent GS hatchback, 64,000 miles, automatic, alloy wheels, call it average condition, tires about a year old. And it's that very green color they had that year.
    The dealer is asking $19,990 for the Kona, so she's trying to get an idea of what she can expect to pay. Thanks in advance.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Member Posts: 29,265
    Kona is already marked way down. Very little profit there. Expect about $3500 for the Accent.

    Funny enough, even so rare, 16 have gone through Manheim in the past 30 days.

    About $41.2k average, so that one is a great deal.

    Agreed on the color! Strange that there are no interior photos at all. Plus, the photos in general are terrible - they all have strange angles that skew the viewers perspective on the car.

    oh man I love that Volvo. Would buy one of those for sure.

    with the ride height and cladding, wouldn't that actually be a CrossCountry model? Or do they not use that name for the V90?

    Hi, I am in CA and leased a 2017 Toyota Highlander SE silver/black. I currently have 36k miles and am wondering how much I could get for a trade at a dealer. Would a Toyota dealer give more than another make? It has been serviced and maintained at the dealer where leased. I have leased 7 vehicles and this is the first time I am over on miles. I have never kept vehicles for the term and always trade in or sell to private party. It has been in one accident two weeks after I got it. Cost $4k for repairs. Mostly because they replaced factory parts and had to paint rear lift gate and bumper. If I need tires how much more would I get if I replaced them? Is it worth it?

    Prior paintwork is always a wildcard. You may be in the mid $23k range. Possibly higher, possibly lower, depending on how the used car manager feels about that history.

    Get yourself buy bids from vroom and carvana, and see how that stacks up against your current buyout.

    Hello all. Just found this thread. Any idea on trade in value for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Ecodiesel? It has 126k miles, white exterior with blue/brown interior with advanced package. The front bumper was hit at under 5mph when my wife backed into it in the driveway. Don't ask! Two insurance claims. I'm in Baltimore, MD. Thanks, Howard

    Under 5mph? So there should have been no damage, right?

    If it was really just a respray on the bumper, I'd guess $12k. As usual, it is very tough to judge something blind that has had paintwork.

    Thanks for the value. No it wasn't a respray. She was backing out of the garage and my car was parked there to unload something. Before I could yell STOP, bang. Knocked it good and tore a hole in it from a bolt underneath. Also bent the fender a bit. Bumper was replaced and painted and the fender was repaired and feathered in to the door panel.

    Ooh... way more than 5mph. Metalwork is even worse. Well, you can HOPE for $12k. Could be worse, though, thanks to that fender.

    Good to know my wife isn't the only one who did that. She got into my car which was parked behind her SUV, realized my car had no gas, then proceeded to get into her SUV (equipped with a backup camera and parking sensors), start it up, put it in reverse, hit the gas and backed right into my car. I bought myself a new front bumper & grille.

    No it was under 5mph. Literally about 7' apart and she backed out slowly. It certainly showed the difference between a VW Touareg rear bumper(almost no damage) compared to a jeep front bumper.

    Doesn't matter. Metal work vs just a bumper cover repaint is a bigger hit.

    I'm getting 3k back from Jeep due to their own dieselgate(thanks to VW) so I can add that to the value. I got 11k from VW for my TDI Touareg. These diesels really do pay for themselves don't they.

    The part about the whole ordeal that made me mad was the fact that I just knew someone was going to clip my shiny new bumper once I got it painted and perfect. It lasted about 3 months.

    Hi all! I came across this thread while attempting to figure out what a reasonable price would be on a used 2019 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe with ~1000 miles.

    2019 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe
    Pre-owned (not CPO, not a service loaner, not an executive demo)
    ~1000 miles
    Located in New England
    Clean Carfax
    M sport package
    Driving assistance package
    Head up display
    MSRP $55,000 according to dealer
    Asking price $42,500

    I’m tempted because >20% off MSRP seems like a decent deal for a low mileage car with basically all the options I want, in the color I like. On the other hand, I’m concerned that there’s something wrong with the car other than buyer’s remorse. And this one wouldn’t be eligible for any incentives as far as I know, though there really aren’t any new 2019s left near me so not sure if that’s a fair comparison.

    Any idea what price I should aim for? Thanks in advance!
  • qbrozenqbrozen Member Posts: 29,265
    There are massive leasing incentives on the 2019 4-series. Couple that with 20% discount on a loaner, and you could be 30% off on one of those. So make sure you do all your homework on what you’d qualify for on a new/loaner. And, given that, I would want to be 30% off that one, if not more.
