    My car S60 was delivered Aug 2016. Trying to trade in and see what kind of values you guys think it should be worth, and if I should change my mind. Have to decide on Monday what to do.

    It's a Base S60 (non D) but upgradeable to S75 for 2k. Has just under 12000 miles. with Xpel on front bumper and partial hood and mirrors ($850) . Pretty clean with only a slight scrape on one of the wheels and a slight rock chip on the side door bottom (very small and you have to be really looking there).

    Options:
    Next Gen Black seats with Black headliner
    Red multi-coat
    panorama glass roof, sunroof.
    Life time supercharging (transferrable)
    Autopilot (AP 1)

    Went to Tesla beginning of August, got 47.5k.
    Got a quote next from Vroom.com at 54k
    2 weeks later (last week)....
    Got a quote from Carvana at 50.5k
    Got a quote from Vroom, still at 54k
    Got a quote from Carmax(maple shade township) at 40k (this one made me laugh and I talked to the appraiser who said S60 are going at mid 40s at auction and they are partner with tesla. I think he is clueless about Tesla's, but he didn't budge on the quote).

    I think i'm going to trade into Vroom for another car since I can get about 3k in tax savings and avoid the hassle of private sale which I think is worth about 59k? For me my time and effort saved is not worth the extra 2-3k in a private sale since vroom guys will come and pickup and deliver to my door and not going to haggle over small details on the car.

    It's a long story...I wanted to upgrade to the latest generation, which is why I started with tesla first on the trade-in. But they gave me such a lowball offer(the sales associate even suggested I keep driving it for another few years). After some research, I decided to get another car on a tradein to save on taxes and maybe buy a tesla later(my state has no sales tax on EV, but do have taxes on ICE). I plan to gift the car to my parents if I upgrade to a newer tesla, or keep it since it's an AWD SUV and good for all the camping trips I do. Im all set on the vroom car, but can't decide if I'm selling my self short on the trade in price. If it really is worth just 59-60k on a private sale, then I'm just going to trade it in. Wanted to get some opinions from others who know more about the current market, and also maybe inform those who are trying to sell to avoid carmax and Tesla. I drove 160 miles round trip in my tesla to the closest carmax today, what a waste of time!

    Thanks for confirming... my first car and no experience selling to private, so sounds like the trade in will be the easy route...

    Ya because the tax credit makes it totally worth it.
