On a used car, 20% back of the average of TMV and Blue Book is excellent for a non-premium make of car (Toyota, Ford, Chevy, Isuzu, etc); as low as 15% back is acceptable for premium brands in exceptional condition (BMW, Volvo, M-B, Lexus, Acura).<br> + *If you have questions, feel free to ask me. --["DomenicSantangelo"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Car Dealershipshttp://daviswiki.org/Car_Dealerships2005-11-25 12:37:33MichelleAccurso <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Car Dealerships<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 17: </td> <td> Line 17: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * ''This works!
