Going for a new (after price increase) P85. Got an adequate loan offer from Wells Fargo. I already have 2 cars so I need to sell one. So I decided on selling my 2005 VW Passat TDI GLS Station Wagon. While I did not expect to be offered the Kelley Blue Book value of $11,000 for dealer trade-in or the $12,000 for the private sale the AutoNation offer was insulting. The offer I got was $4,000.
I have read on other forums that others were extremely low balled to their offers. This type of quote cheapens the value perceived of Tesla by associating with such an entity.
