Hey Guys, I was searching for another car and decide to look up the Q60 Red Sport and to my surprise I found some Red Sport with 25k miles or less going for $34k and less, Am I missing something or the Infiniti resale value is ****? I am glad to heard some of you guys input.

As a whole the Coupe/Sedan market is dying, most cars/brands resale value is bad though. If you are comparing to brands like Honda and Toyota with their respective luxury brands, they have always had a reputation for holding value. As long as that is generally accepted by the market then they will hold value longer. Infiniti is not seen in the same regard and thus has a value that drops faster. Not to mention the fact that also generally speaking review sites and the like never have anything good to say about Infiniti, that doesn't help new car or used car sales because there is now doubt placed about the brand.

So when cars sit on lots and dealers start discounting them more and more to help them move, the car finally sells and the price that it sold for is out there on TrueCar or whatever site. there is a software called vAuto, a lot of dealers use it nationwide so you can easily compare pricing data and do quick market research to see what similar vehicles sell for and how long they sit on lots. The data will show that they're selling for less, now other dealers will have to lower their prices to make sure they are competing with the cars that are moving and the cycle continues as prices are slashed. Somewhere along the line we as humans decided you negotiate for car prices but you don't negotiate with the cashier for groceries, same idea with car resale values, we as people on a grand scale decided that Infiniti is not worth as much as a Lexus or Acura used.

Hope this helps.

I recently went shopping for a 2-door. When I found the 2017 RedSport models for sale, I thought I was in love. So I went researching. It isn't long before you read reviews slamming the adaptive steering tech. When it comes to driving fast with your loved one beside you, you want to be in a vehicle that doesn't have numerous user reviews with words like "dangerous" or "the paramedics said we were lucky to be alive."

The average person will have a difficult time sorting out which models have the offending tech, which don't, what options package, etc. Did the seller just leave it off the description? What if I find it has the tech? What if I have it and I don't know it? And all that jazz. Anyone shopping for a serious vehicle like a RedSport is putting the time in to research - and YOU CAN JUST LEXUS. Or if you're after thrills, put a turbo kit on a hardtop Miata.

Anyway, I bought a used 2020 Iridium Blue RWD with 5k miles on it. It was the dealership loaner - great for me. It's gorgeous and hey -- it has Apple CarPlay.

Bumping this thread.

Not that I'm selling my '17 Q60 Red Sport AWD, but I am amazed at the price point of the MY2021s.
23824


In contrast to the OP's observation, from the used market side, this increase in new model pricing is propping up the used Q60 values. :geek:

Hey I haven't been shopping lately but having bought a completely loaded Q60 RS in 2017 these prices are higher!

Don't know about today but when I bought my Q60 RS in 2017, I looked again closely at Lexus. Having owned 3 over the years I see them coming from a innovative, high quality, great value vehicle to an over rated, living off there reputation and being a sales hack like BMW, while now having more quality problems.

I now see people buying them for their logo. Hey I owned on of the very first LS 400's in 1990, and two others so I have experience and a right to pontificate. In 2017 I didn't see anything I liked period.

When they kept jamming my spouse for repairs bills on their highly touted IS 250 I sold it and moved to Infiniti...
