    Got an opportunity to buy a 2014 with 15,500 miles in California at trade in price. I only keep my cars for 1 - 2 years and on a good years will put 12k miles. My goal is to not get my a$$ handed to me when I sell it in a lot of cases I break even. Preliminary estimate is $57,700 which seems high to me. What are your thoughts. Here is the build sheet

    Check out to see what similar cars sells for as a CPO (CPO includes 4 year, 50Kmiles warranty from the day you drive off with it).

    It's for sure not a bad deal but if you're trying to limit your losses why not grab a later 2013 that's lower on the depreciation curve? You're looking at a 2014 without AutoPilot so there's really no need to pay the premium for that model year. Just get a higher VIN 2013 with the parking sensors and folding mirrors and call it a day.

    Also the consensus, and I don't know how true this is, is that the lack of air suspension makes the car harder to sell used.
