trade in value of a car in a dealer

    i know this is like asking how long a piece of string is.

    But is there a general indication of what a car garage will offer for a trade in car when upgrading.

    im guessing that if a car dealer can sell a secondary car for 5k, they might offer 3k and give themselves a profit of 2k. taking into account needs to sit in the forecourt and staff costs, car service, etc. would that be about right?

    The only figure that matters is the cost to change figure i.e. how much it costs you to trade your old car for the newer car.
