Resale values - Falcon vs Commodore
Ford resale value improving??
Just got my local motoring association mag from NRMA (No Real Mechanic Available!), and I was having a flick through it, and found something interesting - the resale value Falcon vs Commodore has changed since the BA came on to the market, in that they now seem to place a greater value on the current base model Falcon sedan than they do the Executive Commodore sedan. It used to be the other way around... I do know the prices seem a little on the high side, but they are compiled by franchised vehicle dealers for vehicles in sound body and mechanical condition, and have travelled 15-20000 kms per year. Have a look at the following:
1996: Falcon $7700, Commodore $10200 - Commodore $2500 higher
1997: Falcon $9800, Commodore $11200 - Commodore $1400 higher
1998: Falcon $12300, Commodore $13900 - Commodore $1600 higher
1999: Falcon $14400, Commodore $14800 - Commodore $400 higher
2000: Falcon $15900, Commodore $16200 - Commodore $300 higher
2001: Falcon $17900, Commodore $18200 - Commodore $300 higher
2002: Falcon $26300, Commodore $22400 - Falcon $3900 higher
2003: Falcon $27700, Commodore $24100 - Falcon $3600 higher
Seems the BA is doing better on the resale market!
