Yeah I agree with this. Dont forget they are in it to make money and on used cars you can talk them down in price. They will have to spend a little money to check everything over and get it all cleaned up like new again. If you get 14k for a trade then they might turn around and try selling it for 17k.
I traded my Mazda in for 1k and they ended up trying to sell it at 3k. The probably end up making a few hundred after getting talked down in price and having to do some little repairs and cleaning. The money miles on a used car the more they have to spend to make it sellable again even for Toyotas.
