My sister traded in a 2002 Civic LX 4 door with even less miles about 6 months ago and she got 6000 I think.

While trying to decide how much more use I want to get out of the warranty on my current vehicle, I spent some time wandering the lots in my small town. Being in rural South Georgia, once I got past all the trucks and SUVs, I found a few things of interest, primarily this:
2010 Acura TL
3.5 V6, 5AT, FWD
NOT the SH-AWD
NO Tech pack
champagne over beige leather
I think everything else is standard:
dual auto climate, heated front seats, slider
Carfax shows a one owner out of suburban Philadelphia, by way of the Honda sale at FAAO.
Overall in above average shape. The bumpers show a little evidence of life on the streets of Philadelphia, but otherwise nothing a visit to the detail shop won't fix.
The dealer is 75 days into this, having bought it at the end of July, so they are getting motivated to move it along.
Asking price is $23,185, which seems to be in line with the others on offer in Jacksonville, FL.
This is at THE Honda dealer in Brunswick, Georgia, 60 miles north of Jacksonville.

hmmm... well, there was one in PA that is similar to this that sold 3 weeks ago for $18,800; however, there is another with the same miles and color that sold 2 weeks ago in Orlando for $20,400.
Looking across the numbers, it looks like the average is around $20k.
So their price is reasonable enough. Any extra off is just bonus.

wow. I have nothing to compare it to with those miles.
Best ballpark guess is $14k.
That's a 3.5 liter, BTW.

Thanks for the help.
The Carfax shows it "offered for sale" at the same dealer that has it on 8/27/13, but doesn't show where they got it from. My guess would be Orlando, because this dealer is part of the big group based in Atlanta (that starts with an S, and the family sold their namesake dealers except this one to Asbury), and since they're based down here, PA is a long way to go for an auction.
VIN ends in 024305 if that's any help.
I'm glad they're reasonable on their numbers, unlike the Hyundai dealer that quoted me $8,000 OVER their website price on a non-CPO Genesis. Needless to say, I won't be going back.

well, who knows? They could have gotten it on trade or from another dealer. I do wonder what the percentage of vehicles is that actually go through manheim. Would be a good number to know.
Good luck with your purchase.

I am looking at purchasing a used 2010-13 i Grand Touring and s Grand Touring. I am curious as to what auction results are for these vehicles as well as general idea of a fair dealer retail value. I understand these vehicles depreciate fairly rapidly. Oh and I am in CA.

I do wonder what the percentage of vehicles is that actually go through manheim. Would be a good number to know.
You made me curious, and I did a little online searching.
This article which appears to be from 2010 says:
“Nearly 10 million used vehicles were sold through auctions last year, according to Manheim Auctions”.
And Wikipedia says, “In 2005, about 44 million used cars were sold in the U.S.”
This article from February of 2013 says:
“About 40.5 million used vehicles changed hands last year.”
From this, we can infer that about 1 in 4 used cars go through the auctions.

but we can't infer those were specifically Manheim auctions.
The quote was from Manheim, but they just said "through auctions," not "through OUR auctions."
I'm a very picky fact checker.
