Funny, but back in the day my family owned a couple dealerships. My father ran a very honest business and people really trusted him. I recall several instances where a customer would be told their tires were getting worn and they should have them replaced. A couple instances the (usually) elderly customer would say "well, maybe you should just order me a new one". Some would even have him pick the color or whatever options he thought they needed.

Can't locate a solid source for pricing of used Sprinter vans. Edmunds TMV is always thousands of dollars below sellers asking price. Ebay Motors Completed Listings show no sales. KBB has nothing to offer. How do you figure out what it's worth in order to make a fair and reasonable offer?
2006 Dodge Spirnter 2500 High Roof Cargo 158"
Power windows, locks, mirrors
It appears to be in perfect condition.
Edmunds TMV Dealer Retail $18,903.
The dealer is advertising it $29,000.
$10,000 shades of grey.
Read me a book.

It's really tough to find values on used commercial vehicles. I buy for a company fleet and sometimes pick up used stuff but it's hard to find published values. I usually try to put it into perspective vs a new one. A 2006 with only 40k miles is quite rare. I looked at a site I buy from and most 2006 models have 150k-200k miles and are going for $17-$19k. My experience is they'll come down a couple grand on a cash deal. Based on that $29k might be a little high but really it just comes down to what it's worth to you.

asking $9K for an 11 year old Ranger? That's nuts!

I figured about $6K would be reasonable. If it were a Tacoma, I could see $9K - they get stupid money used.

re: price for used Tacoma. "they get stupid money used".
You can say that again. At one point I was thinking of a used Tacoma, until I saw the pricing. "Insane" is the word I would choose.

Well, best info I can offer is a 2006 cargo with 85k miles that went up to $11k at auction.
$29k? I think I'd rather buy 2 of the 85k mile examples and still have money left over.

About $4500 at the block. $6k would be low. $7k should do it.

Thanks Q. A $2500 spread seems high but you're the expert.
