With a few years since the Gen 5 debut, I am sure many are curious to see what people have been spending on or getting for their used Outbacks. Info such as year, package, mileage and location to go with the price would be most helpful.
I won't go into prices, as ours is different currency/RRP etc, but I got a early 2017 Premium (closer to your limited model with leather seats/keyless/Nav/Power rear gate/sunroof/18" tires etc) with 3200miles at a ~ 17% drop from full retail.
Based on the typical new car discount, the previous owner would have got, I think it would be adjusted as 12%.
The previous owner decided he wanted to tow a large trailer, so upgraded to a pickup.
3 months ago, I traded my 2016 3.6 Limited with 12500 miles for a new 2017 3.6 Touring. I got the 2016 in Dec of 2015 so I had it for 1 year and 8 months. Located in greater NYC area.
Dealer gave me $28k trade value on it. I feel I could Of gotten more if I sold it privately but I didnt feel like waiting and I could of lost the deal on the 2017 if I waited too long. I also had 10k in equity on the 2015 so combined with the deal they gave me on the 2017 and 0 percent financing for 63 months, my monthly payments went down drastically.
