Hello!

I am looking to buy my first Forester for my son, who will need an off-road vehicle for his line of work.
I am looking at a CPO 2015 Premium with 44K miles. It is very clean inside. Edmunds values this car at about $17,500. The dealer has a sticker price of $18,995. It has only been for sale for less than a week. I am not in an immediate need for this car, and can walk away. Is it reasonable to offer the Edmunds price? Should I offer less? How much is being CPO worth above the Edmunds price, if anything? This is in a metro area of North Carolina.

Thanks for any ideas!

Unless your are dealing with a one-price dealer, used cars are usually priced for negotiation. Besides Edmund's valuation do a search for similar vehicles for sale and present those "comps" to the dealer if those prices are in your favor.

Is the $17.5k valuation dealer retail or dealer certified? I think Edmunds gives valuations for both.
