I could care less what a dealership offers me on a trade in, it's just a #.
It's how many dollars you have to put up to buy what you want.
.....................................( my truck + $$$$$$ = what I'm willing to pay for what I want to buy )..

DMV / MVC, etc. would have to know the purchase price because of the sales tax..

Yet another reason I like A Plan, no haggling. I have zero patience for car salesmen and that's coming from someone with almost 30 years experience working in car dealerships!

I have traded more than a couple handfuls of cars but have never been presented evidence of what I bought the truck for as justification for what their trade in offer was.

Have dealerships always been able to see initial purchase price or is this something new?
It doesn’t matter what you paid for it. What matters is what they pay you!

Dunno if this has already been posted or not, but the value of that vehicle doesn't change just because you got a good deal on it! Do you think they're going to keep that same de-valued price tag when they sell it? Hell no! Tell 'em to lick asphalt!

Here in FL, they dealers go to the weekly "black book" price of what the vehicles have sold for at auction. That is what they based their trade in sale offer. It's hard to believe that all dealers are not doing the same, since that is the actual value of that vehicle at any given time and area. Obviously, as stated, the "real" value is the difference in your trade in and the sales price of the new(er) vehicle. Trade in value is only half of the equation, price on the new vehicle is the other. The only absolute value is the difference in the 2.

Who cares what you paid? Hell, I would show them the receipt. They should give you a fair price regardless.

However trading in a 2018 is basically taking money and flushing it down the toilet. It took a big hit in depreciation the second you bought it and you haven't gotten any value out of it yet.
