In other words, it doesn't matter if they only got the market allowance for one car and decided to split it. This car is worth what it is worth as a leftover 2009, and seeing as how the 2011s are basically out and about already they should be willing to price this car to sell if they want to move it. In my opinion, $8,500 is not enough off for that car and I'm not even sure if $10,000 is either. It's a pretty basic car... the first number of your selling price should be a "3".
Correct - the real issue is what the car is worth. The reason it is still on his lot is that he is asking too much. I don't think $10,000 off MSRP is a good deal, but I know only $8500 off is a bad deal.
