2015 Pro 4X - Black, Manual Transmission
Way I see it is Simple Demand & Supply : Demand is & remains high, while supply is much lower = Higher prices. Basic economics, wouldn't you agree?Rare doesn’t equal valuable. Manuals are worth less than an auto per all the valuation sites. And that was $21k trade value which would be less than a retail value.
Sure but your conclusion that manual SUVs are in high demand is wrong. There’s a reason they are rare...no one wanted them. There exists a population of people out there who exclusively want manuals (myself included) but don’t let your affinity for manuals sway your judgment on reality of the market. As I maintain $23k is a very fair valuation. I purchased my ‘15 P4X 6MT with 77k on it in July for $20k OTD.Way I see it is Simple Demand & Supply : Demand is & remains high, while supply is much lower = Higher prices.

I wouldn't be buying anything from Ford in its first year. The new bronco looks cool, but let others be the Beta tester. Buy another X. Go Bronco in another 3 years or so - assuming Ford is still in business (there $125 billion in debt, and paid over 8% interest on short term bond financing during Covid). I grew up in a Ford family and drove many F150's - so its sad for me to watch.I'd recommend looking into the new ford bronco. As an xterra owner myself the new bronco is my contingency plan.
Not necessarily .. Under any circumstance, I'd be paid a payout from insurance, and either try to find something different & comparable to replace it with (either another Xterra or something else, new or 2nd hand) or, take the payout minus the salvage value, and try to have it repaired on my own... I'm hoping to receive check from Insurance tomorrow, and then promise to update you all.Based on that last post it looks like CanXterra headed the wise advice to take the total loss path at least!
