A black one in KY with 76k went through about 3 weeks ago and hit $37k.
If that's at a Land Rover dealer, I suspect they won't go under $41k. I'd have a hard time paying more than $40k for it.
(hell, who am I kidding? I wouldn't pay anywhere near that for a used Range Rover!)
#43842 of 44380 Should I purchase a 2010 Yukon Denali
May 28, 2013 (5:24 pm)
I am thinking about buying a 2010 Yukon Denali with 13099 miles for $42,000.00. It has all the bells and whistles but just was curious as to if I should buy this SUV or wait until the new model comes out. It seems like to good of a deal to pass up. What do you think?

Seems like all the money....and I'm assuming it's an AWD. Location will play a big part in this, but I think you'd want to be south of $40k to be a good deal. That being said...there's not many of these on the market so it's hard to really pin down. Regardless of miles, it's still three+ years old and should have a significant amount of depreciation. Redesign will be awhile and probably be $20k more than this.

I'm having a bit of a hard time figuring out the different models of this. There is the Yukon AWD or FWD, Yukon 1500 AWD or 4wd or FWD, hybrid, 2500, etc, etc.
So, looking at an AWD Denali, they are going for about $40k with under 30k miles. None have had less than 20k, so it seems you found something here, as long as its clean and no black marks in its past.
#43845 of 44380 2010 Mazda CX-9 GT - lease ending - can I flip?
Jun 03, 2013 (12:32 pm)
We're in Jacksonville, FL, with a lease ending in exactly one month and the wife wants to get into a 2013 Enclave. The residual is $16,283 (all payments made). I'm wondering if it's possible that the trade-in value would be high enough to warrant flipping it at the Buick dealership (or CarMax) instead of simply walking away at lease end. We are slightly over the mileage allowance, so we'd need to consider those costs along with the $300 turn-in fee.
The goods: 2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring / FWD / 47k miles / black-on-sweaty-black
Major Options: Sun roof, rear-view camera, Bose audio (no navi; no entertainment)
Condition: Interior is in decent condition - a little dusty, but nothing a little Armor All couldn't fix. Nothing broken or exceptionally worn, with exception of the two car seats we've had continually installed in the second row for the entire life of the lease (42 mos), so there may/probably will be indentations.
Tires are at the end of the life. All maintenance completed at Mazda dealership with records.
Exterior has two blemishes of note - a slight hair-line scratch on rear passenger door (about 3 inches long) and a small pea-sized dent on other rear passenger door (no paint loss), probably from a neighbor car door opening into it. There might be a couple other minor scratches if you look hard enough, but nothing that's really memorable.
Any chance I could get some recent auction prices for similar vehicles? Also, any other advice would be very much welcome.

Auction prices are around $19k for clean ones. You'd probably be looking at $17500-18k trade.
Problem with selling to carmax is, I believe, there is tax to worry about (I'm unclear on this since I know the dealer would be reselling it, so there may be no tax, I'm not sure). So you may not get anything out of the deal, although you'd avoid the fees. Better bet is trade it in at the Buick dealer because you'd get the tax benefit.

Thanks so much for the reply!
Well, you were spot-on with the auction prices - I took it into CarMax yesterday and they offered $19k even! Apparently I was a bit too critical on the condition as the guy said it looks and shows extremely well, especially coming from a 2-child household. I also specifically asked about taxes and they confirmed I would not have to pay since they're a dealership buying directly from the bank. However, I will absolutely take your advice and also take it into the Buick dealership this weekend to see what they offer on it. Worst case scenario, sell it to CarMax and get a ~$2700 bank draft.

Yeah, that's great.
Even better would be $18k at the dealer. You'd get $1700 equity PLUS save $1260 in tax on the new car (FL is 7%, right?).
I would bet if you work out a deal on the new car, and they come in below $18k on your trade, they'd be more than willing to come up to $18k just to keep you from becoming a "be-back" when you explain that you'll need to go sell your car to Carmax before signing for the new car.
