Re: Falcons poor resale

We drive the best cars in Australia, but I cannot believe the resale rating of these cars!! I was told my car is only worth 13 thou at trade in?? 99 mod, 80k on the clock, immaculate condition. It is just too depressing!! Then driving home I spot an AUI XR8 for sale at a dealer in Penrith for only $23000 with only 90 thou on the clock. Cheap car, but I feel sorry for the guy who sold it to them!!
Man it's definitly bad for us guys who own falcons and want to trade up. If they only give you 13k what about my baby 1994 with 204k on the clock, i don't even want to ask it will depress me too much. Definitly take all the goodies out of the car if your going to sell it? BTW have you got the car sorted yet Simon?
By the same token though $23000 for an AU1 XR8 sounds good, is it manual?
