I have been working to find my first f car. After a number of months I narrowed it down, took some for test drives and settled on one. it’s a dealer car certified pre owned, and what I’d call semi-collectible; not a speciale or anything but it’s a manual car from one of the last models in that lineup produced with a manual (and no I don’t want to get more specific than that in case I buy it!). I got to the point where I’m all ready to buy and kicked off the negotiation. I got a phone call this morning with their response to my demands and, to their credit, the dealer reminded me there was “very minor damage” from getting rear ended outside of the dealership and needing the bumper replaced and that was driving their lower price. they made it clear they won’t move on the price more than what I’ve negotiated, which i feel is an absolutely fair price for an Undamaged car. what I’m struggling with is that I have no idea what sort of value loses I would have / should expect for this type of damage and whether I’m going to have huge problems when I go to sell or trade it since it’s my first f car transaction. insight appreciated!
