trade in value - OMG =(

I just came back from a stealership here in fla. I was looking into trading my TI sport for something else (different brand). They looked at my car, 2017 with 10K miles and offered me 24K.

I am not sure what to think. Can a 40K car really loose that much value in a year? Is the alfa brand that "crappy" for lack of better terminology or are these guys just trying to take advantage.

With used TI Sports going for under 30, unfortunately not shocked.

Pretty standard for a "luxury" car to depreciate quickly and probably even more so with an Alfa.

I'm not to sure I would use a new car dealer to give you a fair market value of your used vehicle.
I'm presuming their quote would be somewhat less than the actual value to you if you took the
effort to get the best money for your car and not just ask for the trade in value from a new dealer.

In the States, 2017s are the first model year of the Giulia, and the first iteration of any vehicle typically takes more of a depreciation hit than subsequent model years. Obviously there are some exceptions. I’m guessing the 2018s will not depreciate quite as drastically.

I donít think so. Nice thought though. It is still an ALFA and you can do a real quick depreciation estimate. 1 year on your 2018 once we hit 2019 will be ZERO difference. Trust me or donít trust me. You can check. And it isnít just ARs. Just be happy you got 8k discounts or what ever. It will split your depreciation for driving off the lot. Nose dive. 2019 same thing. 2017, 2018, 2019 are all the same car mechanically.

$24K is about right...with 10k, maybe get up to $26K. The good news is depeciation for years 2-5 will be quite slow.
