I sold it to a used car dealership Driveo..... I should have sold it to them months ago, they gave me more than I expected, more than I was asking for it! STUPID ME! No wonder they have 5 star ratings!

While I was waiting, I walked their lot & noticed every single Car, SUV, Truck & Jeep they had on their lot was flawless, not a scratch or ding anywhere to be found! They have their own in house detailers who take their inventory a step farther than just cleaning & detailing, they fix/blend/polish minor dings, scratches etc. I'm not kidding, every used vehicle I looked at on their lot was flawless, everything from a 7 yr Toyota Van 160,000 miles to a 5 year old Jeep Wrangler 79,000 miles, to a practically brand new 2018 Ford Escape 398 miles, they were all flawless inside & out.

They'll sell my Touareg for thousands more, good for them too because NOBODY, ... & I mean it NOBODY even looked at it when I tried like hell to sell it for the past 3 months. Heck, I didn't even have one serious prospect, only 2 or 3 contacts about it, & all they did was waste my time, they were never really going to buy anyways.

TDI's (Including 3.0L V6's) were flying off the lots back the end of last year, (people trying to get that Restitution money) but now they're all dead in the water, at least TDI Touaregs are.

Congrats! Great info. How did their quote compare to CarMax?

Now you can add "SOLD" to the title of your post.

Absolutely NO COMPARISON to CarMax (I assume you meant CarMax)

Carmax offered me $14,500, Driveo offered me $18,550 originally, but lowered it to $18,200 because I was not the original owner.

SHIFT offered me $19,800.00 for it the beginning of last month, then lowered offer to $19,400.00 2 weeks later, then lowered again to $19,200.00 a few days after that & I turned it all down thinking all BS just to get you in the door, I thought they would deduct $1000's of dollars on every little ding & scratch they could find, but I was mistaken, probably would have been fair, I should have sold it to them in the beginning right from the start, but back then I kept thinking someone would easily buy it for $20,000 to $21,000, BOY WAS I WRONG!

I've been trying to sell it for 3 months, in that time I've learned almost no Touaregs (Gas NOR Diesel) have sold on Cars.com, eBay, CarGurus, nor Autotrader. Even the ones you think sold, you see them listed again a few weeks later.

I don't know if it's just Touaregs, or perhaps that's just the way it is with Used cars at this price point, dealerships have a much easier time selling used vehicles at this price point.

I listed my 1998 TDI Jetta for $4500 about 3 years ago on CL & had 17 phone calls in the first 5 hours, some were 2000 miles away, it changed my mind & I kept it. Must be a whole different ball game selling used at the Touareg Price Point, I couldn't sell it no matter what I tried.

Oops, yes, CarMax! Haha.
Very interesting. I wish I was local to SD to swing by Driveo or SHIFT. CarMax offered me $20,000 on my Q7 about 2 months ago, private party value is mid-20s. They told me they do not sell any TDIs; they send them straight to auction ever since the recall. A local VW dealer quoted me "low 20s" and showed me the list of auction transactions. They (and it seems CarMax) just use the low end of recent auction sales of comparable vehicles to determine their buyback price. If I don't get any private party interest, I'm gonna cut my losses and sell it to CarMax I think.
It is such a shame that, even with the restitution payment, we are getting hosed on the residual market value of these gorgeous luxury SUVs. Seems no one but you, me, and a select few others want them. I wish I could keep mine, but we got a van that better suits our family, and it doesn't make financial sense since my commuter car is a '12 gas Jetta with which I get 26mpg on my 6 mile commute. It's just plain "cheaper to keep her."

I had a completely different experience at a Lexus dealership. We were looking at at a CT200H (its a Luxus Prius). We drove a nice one a a local reputable used dealer and then went to look at a similar priced (both 2014 same options different color) "certified" one that had 25K more miles. When they brought us out to this car: The shark fin antenna was falling off, there was a fist size dent in the bumper, scratches all over the car, and the headliner had some white stains. The sales guy says "certified" only takes care of the stuff under the hood, but we will fix the other stuff, if you buy it. No thanks! We went back and bought the other one.

Nice to see they gave you a decent price.
