I had a 20 PacHy Limited that I sold to buy my 21. Considering that I got the $7500 tax credit, I didn’t lose anything.
That is not true. My 2021 Pinnacle MSRP 52,720.00, 47,960.00 OTD a unicorn fully loaded with everything that 2022+ are missing (third glass, power fold mirrors, etc.), I will have had two years this coming May,They all lose $5-$10,000 in value as soon as you drive off a new car dealers lot.
I did the same thing. View the link in my previous post and see what I did.I had a 20 PacHy Limited that I sold to buy my 21. Considering that I got the $7500 tax credit, I didn’t lose anything.
Yeah, I missed out on that. Had I done it a few months earlier I could have scored with discounts like stopeject and you did. With the increase in used values when I upgraded it wasn't too much of a difference I missed out on.Back in the good ol' days, you'd have 8-10k off the MSRP price PLUS the $7500 tax credit. You can't get a cheaper van than that. My 2021 Pinnacle, which was under $44k OTD plus the $7500 tax credit, is still worth around $48-$49k. It has more options than a 2022 and is not easy to find these days.
Haven't seen anything like that. Everything I have seen is sky-high compared to three years ago.Also a pretty bad time to check used car values as they have been declining over the past several months and returning to normal.
Many articles out there about dropping prices, and at least in my area dealer lots have gone from empty to full. At the start of 2022, I was fortunate to flip a few cars because of used car prices, but have struck out since Fall 2022. Some areas may be different, but overall it seems things are normalizing in the car space. Here is a quote from a cars.com post:Haven't seen anything like that. Everything I have seen is sky-high compared to three years ago.
I didn't say it tanked, just said it is declining and returning to normal. Overall, the price of vehicles has been declining, and yes there are exceptions, but basic economics are at work as supply returns to normal and demand softens. (Maybe Canada is different, as I do not shop or live there).Market hasn’t changed that much , and the pricing decline is based on what vehicle you have . Talk to the Tesla fan boys about the price cuts and then talk numbers . Sold my 18 ehybrid what I paid for it 3 years after I purchased it and my 21 pinnacle ehybrid is on cash positive side for value in trade or private sale . So generalizing that whole market has tanked as a blanket statement is just plain nonsense
Must be dependent on which model Pacifica & trim you purchase. My 2022 Pacifica Touring L AWD (Fully Loaded $51,800 invoice plus the $6,500 in parts & labor with after purchase add ons $58,300 total cost including everything).That is not true. My 2021 Pinnacle MSRP 52,720.00, 47,960.00 OTD a unicorn fully loaded with everything that 2022+ are missing (third glass, power fold mirrors, etc.), I will have had two years this coming May,

I am still way ahead with the 7,500 tax credit and all the fuel I have saved the past two years.
Sold my previous 2018 for more than what I bought it for new.
Yeah, my son bought a Tesla Model Y in December after they announced the $3,750 price cut, but before the $7,500 discount. The even larger discount announced a week or so ago does not apply because the options he ordered put his vehicle beyond the allowable range. At least he got something, but I really don't think he cared about it like I would.I feel sorry for anyone that bought a Tesla 2 months ago.
