    Hi! I have a 2014 Mazda 3, automatic, Grand Touring. Mica Blue. In great condition. Has only 9,846 miles. I need to turn it in/it's at lease end. But the dealer would like to purchase it instead of having me just dispose of the lease. I'd prefer to not go through any kind of trade in process, and just lease a new Mazda (same model/similar trim)--that would be less complex. But since the dealer is insisting on a more complex trade-in process, I'd like to know how much my current car is worth, and how this should impact the price of my next car.
    Hatch or sedan? S or i model?

  • Thanks qbrozen!  It’s an s model (larger engine), and it’s a sedan.  Thanks so much!!!

    Dang. Forgot to ask where you are. Well, about $14k ... could push to $14.5k if the dealer is really in love with it. He'd have to pay mid $14s at auction and then pay the fees and transport, so he'd still save money buying yours. If you are on the West Coast, add about $250. If you are in the Southeast, knock off $100.

    Do you know what your buyout is minus any fees and taxes? (dealers don't pay the fees and taxes a private owner would.) If $14k-$14.5k is more than your buyout, then the amount above and beyond your buyout is cash in your pocket. You can either take the money and lease a new car or you can apply the money toward your new lease. If they have subvented leases with low interest, you'd probably be better off pocketing the cash and putting nothing down on the new lease.

  • Thanks so much qbrozen! Am located in the SF Bay Area. It looks like the buyout less tax and fees is just under $14K (about $13.96K). So not sure why the dealer would be so interested in this vehicle - unless they really want to have 2014 inventory on hand... In any case, this is super helpful!!! Take very good care!

    with those miles, they want to retail it, and don't want to have it go to auction to bid on it.

    Absolutely. Maybe they can throw him $500 or something just to give SOME incentive. You would avoid the disposal fee, though. But you'd probably avoid that if getting another Mazda anyway.

    Hi Q,

    Need another favor from you, you have helped us tremendously in the past. We are thinking about trading in our van:

    2011 Toyota Sienna XLE FWD (no Nav or RES)
    114k Miles, Extended Warranty to 8 years/ 125k
    Silver/Gray,
    Good overall condition, newer tires
    One Owner in MN

    What can we expect on a trade in?

    Thank you in advance!

    This value absolutely shocked me: $10.5k-$11k.

    I was prepared to urge you to sell it privately given the warranty, but now I'm not so sure. I think I'd rather trade before the market comes to its senses. ;)

    $9400 trade on my wife’s 2011 X3. (Right in line with qbrozen’s estimate) Any guesses on the asking price at the BMW dealer, where I traded it?

    BMW dealer? They are shameless. It could be anything B) $17995.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 133,743
    $14,500. Says it's marked down from $16,200, but that's the first time I've looked for it, so no idea if they actually put that price on it, originally.

    95K miles. They aren't a one-price dealer. I'm sure you could get it for $13,500, if you tried real hard. Really makes you think twice about used car prices, though.

    We are looking into either a new Pilot (we had a 2005 before and liked it) or a new Highlander ...then again, may be we should just get another Sienna as it worked great with 3 kids and all the road trips we have taken ...

    Basically, we need to start test driving and see what my wife likes better :)

    In my experience, the asking price is usually $3,000-$4,000 over what the dealer has in the car.

    Correct. $4k is pretty average. Considering, in this case, we know what they paid, their markup is well beyond that. It happens. That's what averages are all about. :)

    Oh 95K....I thought it was much less for some reason. They'd get better money in CA for it.

    I was rear ended awhile ago, and repaired by insurance. It is not salvage. Bumper was replaced but parking sensors do not work. Other than that great working condition. I'm just not sure how much of a hit the value takes with an accident.

    Sadly, the Cruze depreciates like a rock. The good news is that means it probably won't make a huge difference in value with the crash history. Did the sensors stop working as a result of the crash? If insurance repaired, they should have put it back to "new," meaning you should hound (or have hounded) the body shop to get that right.
    In my own personal book on Diminished Value, yet to be published for mass consumption and education (any publishers here?), I look at "body shop issues" as not a problem to be taken up with the body shop, but as an inherent and common problem to be dealt with at most body shops. You will likely have to spend a lot of time going back and forth trying to get the car fixed right. IMO this should be included in the diminished value.

    One of my conclusions is that the solution is to have a skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable body and paint specialist that you know personally stand guard 24/7 during your vehicle's repair at the body shop to witness any (and hopefully deter any) shoddy workmanship being performed to your beloved vehicle.

    Stumbled on this by chance and kind feel like I'm creaping on my neighbor.
    Price seems high although he is probably 50/50 about selling it.

    Hey q -

    My in-laws are about ready to turn in their Accord off lease and I’m curious as the the values on it:

    In CO,

    2015 Accord EX-L sedan
    4 cyl, Auto CVT
    Blue over gray leather
    22k miles 

    Good condition - several light scratches.  So not pristine, but normal wear and tear I’d say.

    They’re checking on it, but it believe their buyout is in the $17k’s.

    Aaah - okay. We were thinking if it was worth more than the buyout than maybe it'd be worthwhile to buy it out and have it as a commuter for a short while then resell it.

    Not worth the effort. Thanks Q.

    GA charges full sales tax on a lease. Ask them if you’ll get a trade-in credit against the taxes for your trade. I don’t know how it works there, but it’s something to consider and question.
