Toyota Resale Values Dropping
The prices dropped nearly 10% over the course of only a few weeks, for a total of more than $1,000 in lost value because of concerns from buyers over the safety issues and ongoing reliability concerns. Other cars in the mid-size sedan segment have seen their value remain relatively unchanged over the past couple weeks.
The decline is likely to continue according to industry pricing estimates, and while the cars may still be a worthwhile choice for buyers once their issues are ironed out, prospective owners looking to sell their cars in the next several years may want to keep in mind the continuing loss of resale value.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
