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.

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.
