Kelley Blue Book

Was looking at a used car guide this last weekend and noticed that Versas are hard to find used and the ones that were for sale were priced pretty high for resale. One 2010 V SL HB was 16,000 with 25k mi. I would like to sell and jump up to another vehicle, but I am happy with the V's ride and mpg. Sounds like some of us on here have had lemons. I always wonder if Nissan has their own boots on the ground in Mexico.

Also, Nissan finished 3rd in best resale value for subcompacts.

That's all good with the 16k resale value but that's only for dealers. Once we trade our V's we only get 10k max for the V you just described. You might get 16k from individual sale but good luck with that lol. I have an 11' with about 17k miles and mine is valued at just over 10k if i ever decide to trade it in.

Very true. I tried to trade mine in and it was worth almost $10K...which isnt very much for a newer car(she was like 8 months old then). :(

I've noticed in the last year most used fuel efficient cars [esp just a few years old] have held their value well, their demand is up.
Also within the last two years, new cars sales were down, so supply of two year old cars is relatively low. Greater demand, lesser supply, two-year-old fuel efficient cars are more valuable than comparable cars in the marketplace only five years ago. So in theory, new Versas should also do well at trade-in time a couple years from now...unless gas drops under a buck a litre again:smilielol5:I'm not holding my breath

it could that consumers are not wanting to buy a brand new car because as soon as they drive it off the lot the value drops. Also people are cutting back and putting things on hold, I was reading an article about the inflation and deflation on the economy.

Here in States people are carefully spending their money and are using any tool to find the cheapest price on an item. The media is also helping viewers how to find the right price. there are also apps on cell phones that can tell you who has the lowest price by simply scanning the serial number and it does an automatic search for the cheapest price.
maybe if people are not buying brand new cars but want used low mileage cars then the dealer could raise the price on a used car but if you want to trade a used car might as well keep it. I will keep my Versa as long as it runs good because there's no point on trading it and getting something more expensive that can do the same job, that is take me to work and back. Sure, one day will break down but if its paid off it might be worth getting it fixed than signing a 5 year contract with rumpelstiltskin :biggrinjester:

BINGO. I think if I get rid of the V, I might miss it. The next car might whistle and shine, but my Versa hums and mumbles but never complains and always starts and stops where I need it. And if I get rid of that, I get rid of what was a very good car indeed.:woot:
