Just checked NADA Trade In on the truck and it has gone up over 3 grand since I bought it.
08 ESV all options (yes even the power steps).
MSRP was $72+.
I bought Aug 08. Was used a few months and some traveling sales rep brought the keys back to the dealer when he lost his job.
Gas was $4.30 gallon at the time.
30,000 miles and I paid $39,000 for the 6 month old truck.
NADA Trade-In now shows $42,500 with my 40,000 miles.
I am guessing my low price was due to the panic of high gas prices and now values are back nearer normal depreciation rates.
Very nice to have driven the last 10,000 miles and be paid 3 grand to do it!!

Cool deal. But be aware, that doesn't also equate to what price someone else will buy it for or what you will get on trade-in. And that's still a good bit of miles for an 08. A more realistic number would be 80-85% of the trade in value. I may be wrong.

You are correct, I was just offered 5k more on my trade than a few months ago when I ordered my new trucks from another dealer, this will be fun dealer against dealer. :stirpot::eek:
