I personally feel that asking these types of questions won't help. Why? Each state/region is price differently not to mention, everyone has different options in their car, dealers make their own prices and prices are negotiated. This goes for new and used prices. Used prices is also based on condition and options included. I highly doubt that there is a 2010-2011 with 20k-35k miles? On average, cars are driven 12,000-13,000 miles a year. I wouldnt buy a used 2010 or 2011 because price wouldn't be that much of a difference and you have the satisfaction of knowing that you're the first owner. Unless you're tight on funds.
*EDIT* I can see 2010's being 20k+ miles as they could of been bought in 2009
Someone can say they paid $32k but is that out the door price or is that including taxes and fees? Taxes and fees also vary as each state has different percentage. It may come with leather but no nav or nav, sunroof and no leather or nav, sunroof, leather and no spoiler. There are sooooo many things that can change the price of a car.
If someone paid $28k for car only before taxes and fees, you may not get that price or even close to it. Hell, you may even get a better deal. When looking to buy a car, this is all based on going to different dealerships and seeing which one will give you the best price with the options you're looking for.
When people buy cars is also a factor in price. Buy it near end of year or during holidays, there will be incentives. Buy it end of month, dealers are more reasonable to meet monthly quota.
If this is your first time buying a car, I highly suggest you do some searching on Google on how to buy a car and negotiating. I also suggest bringing someone who has bought a car with you. Dealers will know right off the bat if you're fresh out of the water and will take advantage of you. I didnt have anyone come with me when I bought the car but after google searching and doing my research, I found out what the invoice price of the car is via www.edmunds.com
, what the lingo some dealerships use in the paperwork.
There are many factors into pricing. As I stated, its best if you go out and do your own research via google and going to different dealerships to see which is more friendly/helpful and which will give you a better deal.
is something to compare new car prices to as they seem to be the cheapest.
