Info above is very helpful...Although, i am not too sure on how accurate the above report is.
For Ex...I am still seeing IS-F's 08 Model Selling for $35k on an average and some even more.
Same Goes for GS350s...3rd Gen GS's can be had for Low 20s, even high Teens with over 75k miles.
If we are just talking about 2012 or 2013 year...It's too early to tell.
Used Car prices gets driven by Market Demand & Supply.
based on residual value on past year cars for cars that are less then 5 years old.... it's statistics... never an exact science.
Those figures and statistics dont mean anything over here in the UK. We have different packages and different prices along with different residuals. Lexus is below the Germans in this regard as the German vehicles are more popular and "in demand" here.
If youre in London, Id recommend going down to Lexus Woodford in Essex, they are very professional and have great deals running all the time! If i recall correctly, they have a 62 reg silver GS250 F SPORT with red leather for £34k with 8000 miles!
Traditionally Lexus holds value well. However, the hybrids do drop their value pretty quickly in Europe. Perhaps there is suspicion on having to replace the hybrid-batteries at some point. Not sure if such fear is justified though.
A co worker just traded in a 2012 Porsche Cayenne for a 2013 Mercedes GL Blue Tec. He said that he lost maybe a thousand on trade in.
He did say that the '13 GL cost nearly MSRP because it's in demand. IMO the Dealer played the old big money for the trade in,not so much off for the new car.
I know that Lexus vehicles hold their value real good without the games that most Luxury makes play.
