Help with pricing on 2014 Audi A4 Komfort

I'm looking at an accident free, used 2014 Audi A4 Komfort with 43k kms listed for $22,888. What would be a fair pricing that's good for me and the dealer? So far, dealer has not budged at all and he is pretty firm on the pricing. Thanks.

They got it for 18 or less so anything over 18500 is likely their profit. I'd offer 20

agree. 20 + taxes only is fair. Besides, there is likely no more factory warranty on the car.

Based on the pictures its clear that the vehicle was in QC (dash and infotainment is in French).... might want to get it checked out by a mechanic to ensure it hasn't been in an accident.

Could you elaborate why? I've looked far and wide and more than 80% A4 sedans in Ontario have some sort of repairs done. This was the only clean car available at right price and I havent yet been able to find anything wrong with it. Thanks!

thats because in Quebec not all accidents are reported / insurance claims are visible.

something to keep your eyes out for. I'd only agree after having a prepurchase inspection.

This is spot on. There is just too much shadiness. Rewinded odometers. Accidents not reported, cheaply repaired. Definitely do a good inspection or make sure it's an official Audi dealer with their certified pre-owned protection.

add to that the following:

- Compared to Ontario, the snow removal procedure is pathetic relatively
- The roads are in poor repair and thus suspension probably has taken a beating (ball joints, control arms, bushings, mounts, etc.)

Sorry but I don't get the Quebec thing. I live in Quebec and if I crash and get the car repaired it will go on the Carproof/Carfax.
The only thing that people don't understand is the salvage thing. Here it's call VGA(Vehicule gravement accidenté) which means a write off that was rebuild. A car that was rebuild will show on the registration papers it will show Reconstruit (rebuild)
Those are not easy to get insured and dealers don't take them as trade ins and are also impossible to finance.
The law changed in 1995...so all the stories that people are hearing are old stuff from back in the days.

As for the people who think odometer correction only happens in Quebec.....Ontario have as much maybe more people doing odometer rollback for way cheaper then here. I know so because I know some people in that business and I lived in Toronto,

And for the reported accident let me chime on that: I hit a deer in 2011 in Brantford(I was living in Ontario back then). Fast forward I sold the car many years later and IT never showed on the Carproof.....15K damage(Bent frame everything insurance fixed it they didnt want to total the car). I went to the OPP in Woodstock to fill up an accident report car came out clean on car carproof and still to this day car is clean titled. It happened in Ontario not in Quebec

Only 1 ad in Quebec vs many in Ontario

That's if one knows nobody to do the work
