Re: New to Renault - Advise needed.

Here is my example of how well my car held its value;

Renault Vel Satis 3.0DCi Initiale - list price 31,000

Bought by me, 2 years later with 20,000 miles on the clock = 10,000

Traded in by me, 2.5 years after that with 62,000 miles on the clock = 2,500

Okay, the numbers will be different, but the percentage losses won't be too dissimilar.

That's why I didn't buy another...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
