Why pay the MSRP (Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price) when as soon you drive that car off of the lot it has lost value. It’s crazy to think that some vehicles can lose up to 40% of their worth in the first year alone.
Car A: 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Highline $29,575 MSRP
Car B: AUTOTRADER AD 2012 VW Jetta TDI HIGHLINE w/NAV LEATHER 13,000km! $20,995
So let’s do the math, looks like about $8,500 is saved by buying a car that still has the same factory warranty and has been driven the equivalent of 7 months regular driving in terms of kilometers. Not to mention the customer of car A might have purchased tint ($400), rust proofing ($300) and 3M Chip Guard ($500)
