. You are right about the mark-up. There isn't much at all. You must keep in mind that most buy used 1yr old to get out of the mark-up that depreciates as soon as the car leaves the lot. So that said, the mark-up is gone on a used car. I'd move on to other dealers that really wanna sell cars. Post pix and info if you like so we can give u a guess. Right now we don't have a link to see it.
The one I'm looking at is private sale, KBB says $11.8 is good condition value, he wants $12k. Haven't seen it yet, but supposedly in excellent condition, except the tailpipe of another vehicle scraped some paint off of the front bumper in his driveway. That combined with 40k miles and still original tires is making me think an $11k offer is fair, but I want to make sure I'm not off the mark. My girlfriend is the one buying and I want her to get a good price (while also not ripping anyone off).
