Wow, you almost hit the six digits. Mine is at 21000. However, I only get to drive mine about 5 times a year.
#338 of 347 Preowned xB. Can I do better?
Mar 18, 2009 (7:03 pm)
I have an opportunity to get an 2008 xB with 22k miles on it for $13900 with no doc fees. It is an Auto with premium audio. I couldnt find a better price localy for a preowned but I am wondering if there are better deals to be had on the Fleabay.
2009 MSRP for a similar vehicle is $17659. So it looks like I am getting about a $3800 discount for the 22k miles.. It doesnt seem like that hot a deal but I cant seem to find a better deal locally.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

What is the Blue Book on it? It would be a safe bet to assume the dealer paid less than the trade-in value when they took it in. If you like the vehicle I would bargain hard for it, especially in this economy. It's a buyer's market and you should be in control. Dropping the doc. fee is not enough since most people feel that's a BS charge to begin with.

The trade in values turned out as follows.
Considering the car is on sale retail and it is under warranty, it would have to be classified excellent or good. So the dealer is making a neat profit on this.. Hmm perhaps I should shop around.

I got a email quote stating all scion xb's have been discounted 3% off MSRP for auto. price was 16,700 now 16,199. w/ otd price of 18,200 TTL. How else can I chisel these guys? I don't like the fact u get crappy hub caps have them thro in alloys Just my $.02

That's jack. An 08 scion xb wagon used (17000-18000) msrp has a trade in of under 13000 with average miles. (kbb.com). You're paying a lot for Scion's hip marketing,etc which I assume isn't working too well right now. That said, it is a low volume vehicle which may keep prices up. Either way, it isn't much of a deal unless you really really dig it. Xc and Xd are similar.

dealers alway screw u on trade in value. they have to atleast make 1-2k to make it worth their while. for exmpl. they give you 12,700 trade in value & inturn ask 16.5k when they go to sell knowing consumer will want to knock 1k off that is why i never trade my old car in.
