I've been driving an '04 V70R for a couple of years now. Still have ~1 yr left on the lease. I've started looking around for what to drive next, and even talked to a dealer about a trade-in. He offered me $25K as a starting point. Seems very lowball to me - but was wondering what the wholesale price is these days? Anyone know?<p>My Car: '04 V70R, 19K miles, Premium Package, Touring Package, Climate Package, Nav system, integrated child booster seats, GT. Black / Nordkap. <p>Thanks for any info.

Re: V70R - Trade in value?? (Kaizai)

KBB says 27K - 28K, but in my experience KBB has not been accurate w.r.t. what the wholesale/auction value of the car is. It's also my understanding that the wholesale/auction value of the car is what really tends to set trade-in value. I'm happy to be disabused of any my "errant" understandings. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

That seems low. I was offered 22500 for mine which is an 04 S60R and at the time I had 60k miles on it.

Re: V70R - Trade in value?? (Tigers81)

The wholesale figure doesn't take into account specific options that is why I recommended KBB. And this is a national #<p>24k-26.4k

Re: V70R - Trade in value?? (RickTu)

I'd be interested at what people agree on here, an intesting combo with Nav and booster seats. It's a GT though which is too bad but being a V70 instead of an S60 should also count for a bit. Maybe a hair less than Barry's car from a few months ago.

Here's a CPO 2004 V70R 6 spd for sale at the local dealer:<p><A HREF="http://www.autotrader.com/dealers/dda/detail.jsp?car_id=197837767&dealer_id=343033&car_year=2004&dealership_view_name=stadelvolvo&sort_type=make_modelASC&first_record=76&pager.offset=75&cardist=0" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autotrader.com/deal...ist=0</A><p>The price is a bit high IMO considering the year and mileage.

Re: V70R - Trade in value?? (MagoonR)

24K mileage for an 04 really isn't high. (Some) 04Rs are almost 3 years old now

Re: (JRL)

As JRL knows, I went through this with my 16k mile 2005 V70R 6MT back in December. Everyone who saw it said it "showed as new". My BMW dealer did not want to do a trade on it since their Volvo store didn't want the car saying the R's were poor sellers especially with a 6MT. They ended up offering 25.5k when pressed to give a value. Carmax guy was blown away at how perfect the car was...came back with 26k offer after a couple of hours working on it. I ended up selling the car to an independent dealer for $30k. He offered it for $33,900 and sold it for something less than that I believe. Trade-in on a 2004 V70R is going to be somewhere just barely over $20k imo...maybe $22.5k at best -- this is for a "pure" trade-in where you've already negotiated the best price on the new car.
