Default Has the xB's Value gone up?

Has the box gone up in value or is it just me?

Helpin my sister look for a car, told her she should get an xB, she kinda turned her nose up at it when I got it but now loves it. Had mine about a year now, it's an 2006.5 had 3100 mi on it and got it for 11,500 last July. So, I started lookin hunting for one for her and was amazed! The cheapest I've seen so far is an '04 with 44k for 12,900!

Interestingly, I got some snail mail from Toyota asking me to trade in my xB for pretty much any car on the lot. One of my co-workers bought a RS3 xB a couple weeks ago after months of trying to get one. They are definently in short supply.

I paid 12,900 for my 04 a little more than a year ago, when it had 19,000 miles on it. Today it has 36,000 miles and KBB sez it is worth 13,200.

I did mine with Kelly Blue Book last year, and this year it is $1000 more than last year.

Holy Moly!

From KBB:

2006 Scion xB Sport Wagon 4D

Blue Book Suggested Retail Value

Condition: Excellent (which Stubby is -- like new)

Value: $16,470



WOW!

I don't know what to think about this. I guess it doesn't really matter, 'cause I plan to drive Stubby until he's a heap of smoldering slag . . . or until I'm ded, whichever comes first . . . .

I hope they're going up. Not because I want to sell them, but just to reinforce that I made a good choice in cars. Sell them? Pfft! I'll keep Jorge & Bonita until I die.

Default Xb value

Yeah, funny how I couldn't get a single inquiry from anyone anywhere when I was trying to sell one of the lowest mileage RS 2.0 xb's a person could find, in MINT condition, with a KBB of 16.8K!!!!!! Now the people ARE willing to shell out whatever it takes to get one. It's not like I wouldn't have lowered my price a little when a serious buyer came along. Ended up selling it to CARMAX and even THEY sold it for way under KBB value!!! Yeah I AM GDF'n bitter about it. Then I run into a potential buyer..............after I sell it to CARMAX.............and get two letters in the last 6 mos or so from the Toyota dealership wanting to BUY it. What a EFFin' _____!!!! Wrong place, wrong time

J/K

For 20K I'd even consider letting Vanilla go, but I'm just not sure I would.

No kidding!!

For 20 grand, my Stubby would be for sale!

In fact, ANY of my posessions are for sale . . . if the price is high enough!!

(No, my wife is NOT one of my posessions . . . . )

That's awesome, I'd kinda find it hard to part with mine for 20k also even though that would almost double what I paid for it! To hear others say the same says alot about the box
