Spoke to my dealer today. They had a first edition available and wanted to see if I was interested. "The purchaser had a hardship and couldn't take ownership" hmmmmm. They sold it within an hour for $10k over the sticker. Let the games begin. Also saw a Wildtrak sell on Ebay.....

Curious, who was the dealer?

And this isn't the first of it's kind us hearing of it, nor is it the last.

1st Edition.... hardship.... 🤔

Oh yeah, we're gonna see a lot more of that before many of us even get a sniff of a build date. And the suck......buyer just paid 10 thousand more for a 63 thousand dollar vehicle that will, in a couple years, have the same market value of an FE that Granger sold for 1 thousand under invoice. But, all that matters is that everyone's happy after the deal. 🤷‍♂️

Do you really think said purchaser cares about market value though? Probably park it next to his Hummers, Beemers, Benzes and say "Look at me, I got one of the first Broncos!!" :ROFLMAO:

10k? Not enough to tempt me, esp when 4700 of that is taxes

Agreed. A year or multiple years is a long time. Many people make $10k relatively quickly.

Wait the more I think about this it’s actually an offensively good deal. People are paying 10k over for Kias in some markets.

What the fuck lol
The vehicle shortage is real, and soccer moms need their Tellurides/palisades.

A survey a couple months ago, before the situation was at its worst, showed 40%+ of new car shoppers (in all budget ranges) were willing to pay $5k+ over MSRP if they could actually find the vehicle they were looking for

They’re not lying. People are going nuts over the scarcity of the Kia Telluride and the above average reviews. Dealers are adding crazy ADMs to those.

I just sold my used 2012 WRX for $15k, $6k more than I was offered (from the same people) in March.

Anybody passing blanket judgments on pricing is oversimplifying a complex set of issues.
