Well, we should compare to loaded premium cars, or at least similarly equipped.
By that I mean I doubt someone who wants Navi and a moonroof with be happy with a base model Acura/Infiniti lacking both of those things.

bmw charges their dealers quite a premium for CPO. Its going to depend alot on what you feel the warranty is worth. I think, however, anything over $27k would be excessive.

That is my point. When loaded a mainstream car can be about the same price as a luxury car. At some point you have to decide what is more important to you either the latest toys or driving a luxury brand.

Base luxury car = brother-in-law asking you to borrow money.
Cheap brand loaded up = boss asking if you need a raise.

Thinking about getting a:
2009 Touareg 2 in Chicago area.
38000 miles, White, VR6 FSI,
Lacking only nav, camera, towing, air susp
Asking 22,900 which appears below market, at a Hyndai dealer.
Reviews look pretty good in general, tho premium fuel a drawback
Is this a good idea?
Thanks for your thoughts, DQ

In Roanoke/SW Virginia area.
2011 Ford Escape XLT
4 cyl, 2.5 L, FWD, auto
Mileage: 2,000 ... yes only 2000 miles
White suede exterior, black cloth interior
No scratches inside or out, tires obviously good, regular 6 mo maint., no prior damage.
Shortly after the Escape was purchased (early last year) the owner"s health began to fail so driving really back and forth for medical visits.
The owner passed away recently and the widow is planning to trade or possibly get a dealer to purchase outright.
She has no idea what it is worth or what to expect. I am a neighbor who volunteered to help her valuing the vehicle.

For a friend who recently bought, curious how he did.
2010 Hyundai Elantra GLS
Silver over Tan cloth
IPod cable already installed
1 owner- no runs, hits or errors.

Ok, Q, sorry to hit you up for another one. Apparently the whole two-door phase has run its course with my Mom and she is ready to go back to something bigger. Looking for trade-in value for her A5. Here are the details:
2011 Audi A5 Premium Plus
B & O Stereo System (only option on the premium plus, I believe)
Bi-xenon adaptive headlights
Car is in pristine condition - no runs, hits, or errors. Located in the Philadelphia suburbs. Local listings seem to be anywhere from 38-43 for a similarly equipped A5, so I'm thinking this is going to fall somewhere between 35-38 on trade, but I could be off.
She wants to trade on a 2013 or leftover 2012 XC60 T6...

I'm thinking this might be the white one that sold at auction in Arena, IL on 11/20 for $21,400. Reported to be above average. That's a helluva deal if so.
Otherwise, similar vehicles are around $19k at the block.
