Also I do tons of highway driving and the Yeti is not very good MPG-wise on the highway, so a lower and more powerful car is needed.
Octavia combi is what I am getting.
Reason why somebody will buy mine for 800k, skoda ran out and wont have any till next year, price is 938,000nt new without alloys
Thats a $138,000nt knocked off plus a nice set of wheels thrown in
You're basically going for the Skoda I've always recommended then, aside from the Superb, which is a bit on the fat side for my liking.
You have lucked out on the price of the new Skoda which is why you can sell yours for more (privately). This isn't to say that European cars hold their value as well as Japanese cars, because on the whole, they don't. You mention in your final sentence that the other way of looking at is 938,000nt minus 138,000nt. That's quite a depreciation for a car less than ten months old and one in the same model year if you look at it like that. Your purchase and sale smellybumlove is not a reflection of how European vehicles fair in price on the used market. There are always deals from time to time which luck out. They don't however count for the majority of sales, and should not be taken as a rough guide to motor purchasing.
