    edit -- I would estimate 20 % first yr then 10 % of remainder every yr after

    I was offered 62.5% of the new cost of mine in May 08 against a new van.
    By late Sept 08 I was offered 52.5% by the same salesman however the van we were part exchanging for was also slightly cheaper.
    My own van was just shy of 5 years old when part exchanged in October, I do know the dealership sold the van on with a profit of £4500.

    By the time the're 15years old they stop depreciating and start going up again due to inflation (when we have it). Just make sure you keep it long enough.:ROFLMAO:

    I bought my van at a year old and was £13k less than the new model which is about the 20% depreciation mentioned in a previous post.
