#17 of 54 SC400 Price
Aug 06, 2007 (5:50 pm)
I'm looking to buy a 1992 SC400 from a private seller. The vehicle is good to excellent condition with 112,000 miles. Normal wear of leather seat on driver's side. Owner said it was rear ended a few years ago, but was completely restored. Looks great with a very nice exterior/interior. Options include the moonroof, rear spoiler, 12 disc CD changer with premium sound system. Asking price is $7895. When I compute the price on Edmunds TMV, I get $4372 Private Party and $5891 Retail (including regional and mileage adjustment). KBB has it listed as $6195 "Good" and $6755 "Excellent." Question to you all is why the big difference in TMV vs. KBB? And what do you think would be a fair market price for this vehicle? I think the owner has it priced too high. Wanted your input before I make an offer. Thanks!

The dealers in my area only have one if you are lucky. Do they have the pebble beach model every year? How can I find what I want?? Frustrated...

Hello members. I picked up a pre-owned 2006 SC430 in Smokey Granite Mica on Friday. Will be the Mrs. ride (although she has let me drive some) . Replaced a 2005 GX470. She is extremely happy. Not even sure she is aware of the harsh ride she gets with the run-flats. I'll have to keep everyone posted.

All cars will be less expensive later than they are now. In addition due to economy, dealers are dumping more expensive cars which will only drive prices down both now and later. Any dealer can only afford to keep so much inventory at time. Since they are not selling as many cars now, many of the extra cars are have to be moved through other means at a lesser price.

FYI. I just purchased in Sept. 09 a red 2005 SC430 with 11,500 miles for 33,900. My limited research seems to show low mileage 2004 SCs selling around 29K and 2005 selling in mid 30s. If dealing with a dealer, add on about 5K. Keep in mind on a trade, you normally only pay taxes on the difference of the trade $$$.
