    37K to 42K might be good

    I would say depends on the history of the car; has it been tracked? just meeting the owner sometimes can give you clues on how it was driven and maintained? does it have the window sticker other documentation....special editions might command more....with everything in place, agree 37 thousand would be a good price....

    37K is wholesale for an average car. If the car is super clean, and the miles are great, it would easily be worth 42-45. Condition can vary the price a tremendous amount and like so many things in life , if it is too cheap there is usually a reason.

    Color would be a large factor

    Many considerations like warranty?
    Condition of tires, interior, does it have maintenance papers, has the car been checked on a lift by a tech........:)

    You already know this stuff since you've been here since March.

    ok....going to look at it tonight...i have more info, it has 2 more years left on warranty, no track, 3700 miles, clean car fax, window sticker....he is asking 45k....what is a fair price to offer with out insulting him?

    Why not just ask him what he would take? That way you don't insult him at all and he comes up with a number he's comfortable with.

    It's sounds like a good car with very low miles and a warranty. ;)

    good idea.....but what happens if he says 45k is it?....is that to much for a 04?.....i think so?

    If it's too high for you then counter offer. Worst he can say is no.

    Realize since it's local you won't be paying for shipping and you know the history on this one so that is worth something for you. Has it been for sale for a while? That might be a motivator for him to come down a bit.

    I hope you get this one-it's sounds pretty good.

    This my simple justification math here

    Oh, if thats the case the 2500 mile 04 I bought for $60,000, 39 months ago...

    let's see $60,000-$42000= $18,000...ok so $18,000/39months =$461.53 month. hmmmmm my GF has a camery hybrid for the same monthly. Should I get one instead? :rolaugh: I plan to keep it for quite a while....

    34,000 miles/$18,000 =1.8 miles per dollar. hmmmmmm. Still in almost perfect condition....

    Even with the greatest of depressions and depreciation....I don't think there is another car on the planet that can give you that kind of smiles/ value per dollar so far? Am I wrong?

    Car is my daily driver, so I would of had to have a car anyways...hmmmmm

    Hows my math? :lmao:
