TBH with only 3.5 k on the clock its pretty much a as new car ( providing it's not been knocked about)
Depending on full spec it was prob just shy of 40k when new so somebody has taken a big hit in 2 yrs.

I would expect the value of nearly new cars to be holding their value extremely well come the end of this decade.

As I cannot help myself, and as I have been leisurely looking at what’s about, I did a valuation on the Vignale just the other week with Arnold Clark.
£15970 and another £500 if I used a code.

The initial figure was way higher than webuyanycar.com, who came in at £14000 ish. I recall saying' “darn that seems low”.

When I look at a well know auction site, there’s similar to ours at way more money.

I did say the other month that new car prices are just stupid.

The only fair price on a used car is the price you are prepared to pay, not what the seller wants to steal from you, and get temptation out of the mind, its a trapdoor

I have just sold my 2017 Kuga via online auction site, it sold for roughly £1500 less than the next cheapest like for like car I could find advertised ,all like for like cars were from garages. My car was purchased by a dealer who paid £1500 more than my trade in offer where I brought my new to me car, and £1100 more than lots of chancer offers, my car has been put it on his forecourt for £1900 more than he paid me. The Dealer stated the prices of good quality low mileage cars are very high atm. Moral of the story don’t give your cars away when you want to change cars. May be try a decent local car sales see what they offer you, you never know.

I have always sold my cars privately and added around £1500+ that way and always to the first buyer. The only time I part-exchanged at a dealers was to part-ex my first brand new Escort Si (back in 1995) and I made £1000 to put down on another Escort but a higher spec model after just owning it for 9 months! 😲 Those were the good old days when Ford discount actually meant something - 40% new cars!

Supply and demand. Used values have gone up considerably across the motor industry. WeBuyAnyCar.com usually a bottom book advocate are offering strong valuations.

My local Ford dealer says factory order books are closed and I'd be looking at December delivery at the earliest for a new Kuga?

He's been informed Ford Valencia plant is on shut down and production has halted until July. This is apparently due to the pandemic and ongoing industry semi-conductor shortage.

I think Valencia produces Mondeo, Focus and Kuga models.

Valencia normally shuts for a minimum of two weeks each year anyway for line maintenance and upgrades. The semiconductor shortage has hit all European plant for all manufacturers. My own replacement has been pushed back from July to September and I should probably expect a longer delay. No worries, it''ll be a '71' plate then :)

Nieces husband works for a supply company for Landrover.
They are closing the last UK plant this week as there is a world shortage of the “chips” used in the electronics.

That's why I am keeping mine. Rather than buy a 2 year old car for that sort of money it would push me to a new deal and then buy it after 36 months for £16.5k. If anyone has seen a 3 year old Kuga with 27k miles in for less than that then please post the details.
