    Default Vectra C prices... going down down down

    I don't know if this discussion makes any sense while the UK car prices are something totally different from Scandinavia. I was just looking at the Vectra VXR classified, going for £12,500?! The price for same VXR in finland would be over 45,000€ / £30,000....

    But anyway, the price of Vectra C model has been going dramatically down here in Finland during the last year. Partly, this is due to a tax change which allows lower prices for new diesels and low emission cars, but it changed the price of used car lower in general.

    My Vectra 2.0t was 35,000€ as new in 2004. I bought it in 2007 for 22,900€ with only 44tkm driven. Now one year later, you can get a similar 2.0t 2005 model with same mileage for 16,900€. The price came down 6000 euros in just one year! That's over 25%... And roughly the same that my former Astra with 170tkm came down in over 3 years...

    What do you think, am I just paranoid or is this reality?

    Cars, in general, over here are losing money daily.. and i mean big money..the vectra has never been good on holding it's value, but now they are really bad..

    The lowest i've seen recently is a 2004 Sri 2.2 Direct for £2295 with 38K miles on it... the traders are just desperate to try and shift cars..

    Yep, at last I can't afford not to buy that Vectra I should have bought 10 months ago.

    Looking at a 1.8 SRi with less than 10k on the clock for £7995 screen price (I won't be paying that much!) later today.

    Off cource cars lose their value, it's a ****e "investment".. My point being the Vectra is losing its value like theres no tomorrow! Signums seem to be better at this field.

    thats because they are a rarer car.. so they hold their money a bit better..

    The dealers over here are now selling brand new vectra's from under £10,000....
