4x4 Twin Air 2013 only 3.6k miles

Bit pricey perhaps but as a new one in this colour 15k before discount, it does make you think:

But new they are well under 11k after discount, so just a fiver short of 9k for a 3 year old one doesn't look so clever.

Fiat traditionally set list prices significantly higher than the true value of the car to allow plenty of headroom for advantageous trade in offers and finance deals.

25% off list would by no means be unusual; plenty of surplus new cars get moved on with that level of discount or more, through various channels.

Whatever, that car in AL D's link seems well overpriced to me, with that mileage, forecourt main dealer book would be around 7750.

Yes, on a 4x4. The Panda featured in a list of the top 10 discounted cars in a press article last week.

Re: 4x4 Twin Air 2013 only 3.6k miles

Now TA 4x4s are 3 years old plus, secondhand naturally the way to go as someone else has had all the depreciation. I guess the Orange 13 plate will attract someone simply based on mileage. I've seen a lot of fairly high mileage cars of the same age. I just have the feeling you could get 3 or 4 happy years out of it before it caught up as it were (still doesn't make it great value though I agree).

Back to JR Kitching's other point, I had a new Panda 1.2 previously. Thanks to a very generous discount of a third (and 0% finance), I really didn't lose that much money later. Which is why I couldn't bring myself to consider a new 4x4. 3 year residuals were about 37% I think. So a 31 month one with 8k miles was perfect for me.

My old Panda, a 13 reg ta 4x4 with 27k miles is currently sitting on a forecourt for almost 3k more than I was given for it.
I took 5650 and ran!

It's a very basic one too. Plastic steering wheel, basic air con, no split folding rear seat, no tinted windows and I guess no heating screen.

I'd want plenty extras which I think a lot of second hand ones miss as the dealers never order their own stock with any.

Yeah these little fellas are for relatively modest money at the mo: I paid just shy of 12K for a brand new (not pre-reg) Cross TA Tuscany Green with Winter Pack a few weeks ago.....thought I did OK.....but maybe not all that good after all!!
