Re: Wholesale value of the 2013 Leaf @Auction-January '16

I don't know what my old Leaf went for at auction, but it is for sale at CarMax for $9998. Less than 27k miles and in "like new" condition according to the guy who did the pre-return inspection. Lost its first bar only a month before I returned it.

I found a 13 SV with 29k for $11.5k. That's decent, right? It has quick charge port.

Based on the above charts, that's $200 above estimated retail - can probably do better. looks like that car would sell for $7500 at auction, so at $11500 thats $4k in profit, so there should be room for negotiation.

I was looking at a couple S models where the guy just buys them at auction and marks them up a bit. one was 8k, the other 8500.

I also just found a '13 SV with QC and premium for $11.5k Registered and maintained in Northern Virginia which I think plays in its favor for less battery degradation from the heat.

12 bars and 25k miles. Tires at 7/32nds. I even like the color!

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on it.

Although... I do have a quote for a new 2015 SV with QC for $24.5k (so $17k after tax credit). It's tempting with the 0% interest...
2013 Leaf SV QC/LED and Premium. 12 bars (apprx 87%SOH) @28k miles.

Should get the used 2013 tomorrow hopefully. LeafSpy and OBD adapter at the ready for final battery health confirmation. I'm hoping for 12 strong bars SOH number, let's say over 88%. 87 and below and I'll have to mull it over.

Dealer (mobile home in gravel lot does not exude confidence) just bought a truckload of Leafs at the last Georgia Mannheim auction and is charging/cleaning them and waiting for the titles and Nav SD cards.

I will say he does price them to move and only buys 12 bar cars. He also advertises the exact trim levels and option packages which is appreciated.

Oh and the 2015 price was the usual car dealer sales tactic. Actually closer to 27k out the door. I guess they forgot to tell me about the $1000 dealer installed options and the $700 doc fees.

Let us know and let us know if we can get in on that action.

Got it, but not sure if I can recommend the dealer. Too many little things that I thought would be with the car (charger bag, floor mats) I felt I had to argue for inclusion in the price. ($11.7k including everything but state specific fees/taxes/registration/inspection)

And the car wasn't washed as expected and is still missing the SD card for the Nav that is 'in the mail'. I paid for the premium and haven't even heard the Bose stereo yet!

They were good about test driving any of the dozen Leafs on the lot and the paperwork took all of 5 minutes, so let's call the experience a push.

SOH of battery has gone form 89% to 87% in just a few days. I'm going to post about it for advice. I'm on the way to losing a bar quickly!
