    Default Is it worth selling to a Vauxhall Dealer?

    I have been offered a company car at work and to be honest, having worked out all the costs and taxes etc, I would be £150.00 a month better off if I took the company car and money has been somewhat tight since we bought our first house last June.

    However, there are no Vauxhall's on the list and I don't want to go back to a Ford so I guess I will be choosing a new Mazda 6 Sport 2.0D in white as they are a nice looking car and fun to drive.

    Of course this will mean selling my Vectra and I really don't the hassle of selling privately. Does anyone know if you can simply take the car to a Vauxhall Dealer and they buy it for a reasonable price or do they only pay peanuts??

    Its a 2006 56 plate Vectra Elite 1.9CDTI (150BHP) automatic in saphire black????

    Hi Dave,

    Yes, you can take your car to a dealer and they may be interested in buying it straight off you. It depends on mileage and condition.

    Most dealers will want low or at least average mileage unless your part ex'ing it against another car.

    I'd expect a dealer to offer you £7,500 - £8,000

    Have a look at this.
    The result from the Glasses guide on Vx website.....

    It's not good reading............
    http://www.virtual-showroom.co.uk/sc...C06&mileage=30

    I just put mine through. I've got an '06 Sri vvti estate. Had it a year. It priced up at £8970, I only paid £10499 for it, so thats not to bad depreciation.
    I think sadly you pay a lot more for an elite, but it seems you dont get it back..... (

    Where did you get those figures from Spoons?
    Wouldn't mind putting mine through that to see how much difference there is.

    Just had a look on parkers price guide.

    Dealer £13570
    private £12400
    part ex £11230
    poor cond £10530

    Would say they might give you £10500 - £11000 cos of the mileage is high.
