I agree, but...

There usually is an expectation of a "reasonable" value.

If someone was offered $5000 for a car (low mileage, excellent condition) that they purchased 2 years ago for $20000, they may not feel very good about it.

If I understand the thinking behind many of the responses here, it doesn't matter what the value of the car is in the above scenario simply because cars are not an investment.
