Asked by Oct 07, 2013 at 10:39 PM about the 2007 Volkswagen GTI Fahrenheit

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking at this 2007 VW fahrenheit that has been at a local dealership for a couple of
weeks but according to cargurus it's been on the market for 213 days. They are asking
$17,991 for it which is $1,794 above retail. According to Kelly blue book the car isn't
worth more than $13,398. That is a huge difference. Does KBB take into consideration
the limited edition of the car. The car only has 36,000 miles on it. What is the most I
should pay for this car? BTW, the vin # is WVWFV71K97W164729.

KBB doesn't usually look at demand. Edmunds.com is pricing it at $14400. Dealer's like to mark vehicles up so they have some wiggle room. If you want the car and willing to pay $13400, then make an offer and stand by it. If they won't make the deal, then you walk.

You can be 99.9% sure they only paid the NADA average trade-in value for it. $13.4K should give them a decent profit. Go for it.
