I'd agreed a trade in price fo rmy old car of £3,500. webuyanycar.com gave the same price at the time (end August).
Actually got the Juke on 7 November, just for fun I did webuyanycar again and it has dropped to £2,745. Over £700 drop in two months!
Then I see the dealer has it on autotrader for £5,000 ! OTT I thought so I went on whatcar and did their quick valuation and it showed:

</td></tr></t></table>Though whatcar prices are for the manual and mine was an auto, so add a few hundred on.
So one very optomistic dealer (who also has it advertised as a semi-automatic rather than the full CVT automatic that it is.)
Ho humm. I'm not really bothered, I was happy to do the deal for the Juke, thought it interesting to see.

we buy any car would not have paid what they offfered anyway they will always find something to deduct and then their is the feee they chage, as for dealer remember they have to make a profit on what they sell hence why you have trade-in and retail prices, main dealer will always up their forcourt price over non main dealers its hard to say what yours is worth with out knowing what it was but dealer must be confident on getting the price he wants small auto's are alwasy easy to sell

Will be interesting to see what he gets. One dealer I visited when looking for my Juke offered way below everyone else as he'd taken in a Seat Altea and paid over the odds. It had been sitting on their forecourt for 2 months and his manager wasn't very happy with him.

Truly your car is worth what another is willing to pay!!! I've seen some great cars be hit hard as they are not everyones cup of tea?

This was a low mileage (35k) Honda Jazz 04 plate, one lady owner, full service history, automatic.
The real beauty of it is that it was one of the last made that had a factory fitted sunroof. Only thing wrong was a few light scratches from Tesco car park knocks.
I really should have sold it privately, but it was a lot easier to trade it on, especially as the Juke got delayed.

To be honest, silver, I think you've got a great price. I reckon a dealer would struggle to get £3,500. It might be lowish mileage, but its an old model and its 6 years old. It's certainly not depreciated too badly

That's what I thought, and the what car showing price at a dealer of less than £4k confirmed it.
That is why I was surprised that the dealer is trying to sell it for £5k. To be honest, I thought they would shift all non-Nissan's on rather than sell themselves.

2 reasons why they may have kept it 1 they think they can sell it for a good profit hence price its up for or more likely they gave you too much and cant find a dealer to take it off them for what it owes

Well calling it a semi automatic rather than automatic on the description won't help them.

When I put my Eos in for part ex I felt I got a fair price, I did get a quote from webuyanycar which was two grand less than the Nissan dealer offered.

Disappeared off autotrader in a week, so I guess they got a good price or got rid of it in the trade.
