Default My 2007 SC430 for sale at dealer for $41,991

I traded in one of my SC430's in on a new Ford F150 truck last Thursday. Today it's listed at the sister Lexus dealer for $41,991. It's the second most expensive SC430 listing in all of the US of the 400+ listed on cars.com See this link.

Whoever wrote up the listing at the dealership must be missing the comma key on his/her keyboard.

LOW MILES V8 Rear Wheel Drive Key Less Entry (should read)

LOW MILES, V8, Rear Wheel Drive, Key Less Entry

And notice their vehicles come with low price up front.

For sure. When they originally offered $25k my wife was insulted and she immediately said no thanks, at $25k we will keep it. I said thanks but no thanks, I'm going shopping at the other 2 local dealers.

I'm still surprised at what they gave me on the trade and what they have it listed for. Don't get me wrong. The car is VERY NICE, looks, drives and smells like new. If I were to sell it as a private party sale I would guess a fair price would be less than what I got on the trade.


The only regret is that I just put a new Lexus battery in it. If I knew I was trading I would have swapped batteries with my Red 2008 SC430.

No, I did not realize that the 2007's had keyless entry. Is it keyless start also?

On a deal like yours I have never heard of a dealer giving money to the buyer for the difference.
Nice job!!

I've walked away from the dealer table several times with money in my pocket.

Back in 04 I bought an Expedition. I negotiated the trade in where there was $15k in equity. I financed the Expedition 100% at a 0.0% interest rate. The dealer gave a new car and a check for $15,000. I took that check to the bank and paid off the remaining balance of my home mortgage.

Another time I traded in 2 cars on a Corvette and walked away with a car and a check.

It's not unheard of.
