Itís a supply & demand issue now with the RS & ST. Dealers feel the need to overprice them & unfortunately there are many buyers out there that will overpay. Iíll never be one of those buyers though.

For example, if I couldíve bought a brand new Ď18 ST1 last year for 20k, what makes a dealer think Iíd be willing to pay 22k for a used one? Lol but hey, like I said, many buyers donít do their homework or simply donít care & will overpay.


Iíll say this though, if an Ď18 ST1 sold new for 20k, then to me itís worth at least 10% less or more now, depending on mileage. Is a two year old 2017 Focus RS worth 37k? Of course itís not, but Carmax dealers in LA think it is & unfortunately clueless buyers will always overpay even without finding out if the FSA on the head gaskets was done.

Some people have money or they don't care, and they're going to buy what they want. They are not going to deprive themselves over cost.
That applies to everything in life jewelry luxury items I can go all day.

RS as a daily driver?

Yea, I get that about the money & itís very true. One last thing about the RS: Iíve never seen a car Lemon lawed as much as this one. Letís say you go onto CarGuruís & pull up 2016-2018 Focus RS. Between Lemon Law & accidents you can eliminate up to 30 cars on any given day. I already called AAA & the agent told me they wonít insure a Lemon lawed vehicle.

Don't forget dealers have flooring costs ( which could be from $5.-$10 or so a day) & as far as Carmax does they or ppl can have the vehicles shipped from any Carmax location to another one no matter where its at.
