I'm haggling with this woman about her 2014 Corolla, garage-kept, great shape overall and drives like new. She has it listed at 12k and says the dealership will give her 10,500 and won't go lower than that. Are prices really this bad these days? I offered her $8500, which is like KBB starting price.

    1.) $10,500 is not an unreasonable price for a 10 year old Corolla that is in good shape.
    2.) What is the mileage, this obviously matters yet you let it out of OP.
    3.) Ask if she has service records, if she's the type of person I suspect then she probably took it to the dealer regularly for maintenance so you'll have a good vehicle history to reference as they keep good records.

      Sorry, it has 99800 miles. Engine is very clean, very minimal rust. Idles and drives perfect, no transmission slack or noise.

      Here's a similar vehicle in my area from the dealership.

          Jesus that is sad. I once owned a 2006 Mazda 3 with almost the same specs. Ten years later and Dodge is barely able to meet that. Imagine buying an 8 year old Dodge economy car with +100,000 miles, ever.

      She says she took it to Toyota and is the second owner. I imagine she has the records. Also the car has a clean title.

        If the previous owner was local or even if they weren't, a Toyota dealer can tell you the service history if it was taken to Toyota for work. It probably isn't a deal breaker either way, $10,500 is a fair price honestly. Car prices have gone up a lot in the last few years, but you aren't buying a piece of shit either. Camrys and Corollas will go for a long time. Honestly if you buy this thing I would just keep it as my forever car, even if you end up getting another one later on. There's a lot of benefit to having a backup vehicle and you can easily drive this thing another 150-200,000 miles before you might see some heavier repairs. Corolla parts are plentiful and cheap though, so maintenance is easy on these too.

            Nissan is notorious for financing to people who shouldn't drive, so their cars take a lot of abuse from the first financers. Also they had build quality and parts issues that affected even the most conservative highway drivers

            Nissans are known for blowing up transmissions or resembling something in a destruction Derby. The only decent nissans are from before 2007 or manual transmission shitboxes made for a few years after that

          In fact I might as well ask about all the economic cars like Ford Focus, Hyundai, Kia, Toyota... how do they all compare to each other?

            I daily a 2014 Ford Focus, 2012-2014 had lemon auto transmissions. Mine is an auto, but I bought it before Ford was sued and frankly I barely drive it so I never qualified for the class action pay out. The manuals are a different story and highly desirable for rally cars. They're very economical auto or manual, I love mine despite it ticking down until the transmission blows itself up. But I may have had the ECU recall done before really putting enough miles on it. Wife used to drive a manual veloster and those are good too. Stay away from Kia unless you want lunchtime rowdies stealing it.

      She and her husband were in the car when I test drove it, she said she wants a change. I think she got a new car already since it's been 5 days on the listing and the mileage is the same. Everything feels and looks very clean.

      Frick you can't find anything in this economy, especially the economic cars are all snagged up.

        I would scour the internet for any issues with that model over the last decade before buying it tbh, 10 grand ain't bad but I've seen many too good to be "a deal" deals that end up being at least an additional 3+ grand pumped into them after a year

        >economic cars
        Stupid. Buy an old Crown Vic or something instead. Double the fuel consumption, but do some maths you monkey. Here in Australia, my Ford Falcon gets maybe 12 L/ 100 (20 mpg I think?). Say I can buy one of these for $7000 AUD less than a corolla with 7 L / 100km. (35 mpg?). Fuel here is $1.75/L, so it would save 5*1.75*10 = $87 per thousand km. 7000 / 87 = 80000 km until the difference is paid back.
        Do you even drive enough? And also in the meantime you're stuck driving a Corolla anyway.
        People buying new cars to save on gas are the biggest morons I swear.

            Who cares? Tell her your offer is cash without needing to pay a couple grand in ttl + fees on another car. Offer $9k when doing this.

            If it's BS you came up if it isn't she doesn't have a counter since your offer is stronger.
