Shit guys you are getting such a loss on these cars!
Here in EU they hold value extremely well. 2011 models in Finland start at 13,400$!
Yep. Resale value of old Leafs is awful due to various factors (e.g. Federal tax credit, state rebates, incentives, cheap leases on EVs sometimes, other EVs/PHEVs being available, expiring CA HOV stickers (https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/?1dmy ... v/vr/decal
Many EVs/PHEVs are leased and get returned at end of lease, ending up on the used market. Also, for CA (one of the strong EV/PHEV markets), many folks bought or leased an EV/PHEV for the CA HOV stickers. When those expired and couldn't be renewed, some of them just dumped their vehicle (easy when leasing) in favor of another qualifying EV/PHEV so that they can get a new set of stickers.
A few years ago, this guy in a remote part of CA sorta tried to sell his 8 bar '11 for $4500. There were no takers:

If he weren't so remote and/or if his car had DC FC inlet, he might've succeeded.
I've put up my 5/2013 built 11 bar '13 SV w/premium package and now about 64.5K miles at work for $6500. I've heard basically crickets. Fortunately, it's not like a paid a ton for it. I bought it for $9,325 + tax and license in July 2015. It had just under 24K miles but 3 very worn tires. I replaced all 4 almost immediately.
