Since i bought my 2004 XT3 3door back in june 2005 I've been keeping a check on the used car values ,I've used the Parkers guide just to get a consistent price and to date this is how it been going....

06-2005...............£14520

11-2005...............£14070

02-2006...............£14010

08-2006...............£12940

12-2006...............£11920

05/2007...............£10115

12-2007...............£10085

04-2008...............£9050

07-2008...............£8560

2005 to 2006 -£1310.00

2006 to 2007 -£1190.00

2007 to 2998 -£3190.00

I'm a bit taken a back by the deprecation from 2007 to 2008 but i guess a 3 year plus old vehicle now out of manufacturers warranty is going to drop quicker :(

Sorry to say this time next year my RAV4 love affair will be drawing to a close, due to family circumstances i will be looking to buy a vehicle to take a single wheelchair occupant, so a Renault kangoo type vehicle will be the order of the day.

So this thread is building up to a bit of sales pitch for my Rav4 for next June, currently she has 18000 miles on the clock, this time next year i guess it will be 20-21000 miles, full Toyota service history i have to ask what will the value be ?.

Am i right in thinking the 3 door rav4 in high spec is becoming a little sort after ? i gauge this thought as Toyota dealers a trying their luck a £10995 for similar vehicles. would be nice to think i could get £7000 to £8000 for it, so if any of you guys are looking to change your early Rav4 or turn you 5 door into a sporty 3 door :P then keep my email to hand as i would rather sell to a member than p/x with a dealer :(

It will be a super buy for somebody Bob :toast:

Hopefully by this time next year, things will have calmed down a little and you might get a more reasonable price for a wonderful car.

Until then I am sure you'll keep enjoying one of the best RAV's on the road :thumbsup:

Could be worse Bob, you could own a T180! :crybaby:

A quick look on What Car? reveals a part exchange price of £11620... that's a 16k drop in 22 months :eek:

Going by your massive drop in value, i should count myself lucky but then i bought my a year old so it had its first chunk of depreciation before i took ownership.

I would be surprised if you could realise £7,115 TBH, Bob.

there are 55 plate XT3s and XT-Rs selling for about that.

I bought my 05 XT3 at a year old and reckon probably lost nearly £10k in just over 2 years (glad I haven't got a T180!!)

Bob I have just bought an '04 XT4 2.0 vvti with 48k on clock for £5600 private sale. The guy had been trying for £6900 a month previous then droped to £5900 which was the add I found. It is a five door, not sure how that affects the price compared to 3 door. Same colour as yours with buulbars side steps and full leather.

When I checked the What caar valuation prior to buying it had said private sale value should be £7100???? Seems to be a buyers market at the moment.

I wonder if the uncertainty over wheather these cars are going to be hit by the £400 car tax bracket has anything to do with the sharp drop in value.

As bad as things seem to be with all cars at the moment, my RAV4 is loosing money more gracefully that the Lexus IS200 i had before :rolleyes:

Once the fashion wagon of anti 4wheel Drive stops things should calm down a bit, All the fashion owners desperate to be seen in a 4wd 10 yrs ago are now jumping ship because its so 90's

A rav costing £300 to tax next year - Thats an extra £10 a month so I must sell it and loose £1,000's to buy something that I will get 38-40mpg, Its a diesel so it costs 10% more in fuel so my 500 miles a month will save me £10.50/month and £10/mth in road tax

I'm sorry but £240 a year is not enough to panic sell and buy something "Ordinary"

Price of fuel is falling

Bring on the snow is all i say - Let see what happens after the winter

All cars are loosing money fast because the manufacturers are selling the new ones at big discounts and forcing them onto the dealers

Best plan - Keep your Rav longer

Time to worry - When we reach a stage that you can relate to Mad Max 1

:D

Hello Shutty how you doing ? since i first started this thread home life has taken several twists and turn ,and its possible we can still keep the RAV4 , i can live with the road tax / insurance and fuel cost so would never get shot of it for those reasons.
