    Cheapest I can see on Car Sales for 2 wd 2014 auto with 67K is $17,000. The rest are from there up.

    Probably an ex-rental.

    When we were in Tassie a couple of years ago there were plenty of Koleos' to see in the rental car parks.

    The good low mileage ex rentals sold as Renault 'Approved Used' vehicles with full warranty and factory backing sell for twice that. I know because I bought a lovely silver one from Tasmania.

    This vehicle was possibly submerged in one of our frequent floods and written off, then traded for next to nothing and flicked to auction and the low end car market. The lack of plates is telling. Buyer beware!

    Regrettably the comment about 'poor resale value' also applies, especially in Queensland.

    I don't get how rental Km are worse than soccer-mum or sales rep Km .
    If the renter did largely long trips I'd say they would better Km to have on a vehicle than soccer-mum Km, where the vehicle was not taken up to temp.
    I know many of my Km are soccer-mum Km and I cringe at that fact. Sometimes I take the long way just to warm the car up fully.

    I don't think that is all that higher Km.

    E.G. Travel to work each day 50 Km one way equals 24000 Km per year. That then allows 6000 Km for pleasure and personal errands.

    I would be looking for the high tide mark....

    Either that or the front half is a 2015 and the rear a 2014 model......

    We're wrecking one of those with only 20,000 on it. Didn't pay anywhere near that price. That one might be just a little bit better than ours.

    hmm! that would make a half-way decent Koleos.

    As the Koleos is a tarted-up (or down) X-Trail, I wonder what the relative depreciation is.

    I don't think a $13k 2015 koleos with just 60k km is helping this persons efforts either….Have been watching this one drop in price too!!

    This is a concern.....

    I need to sell my 2015 Megane GT Line wagon shortly. (60k on the clock and still under factory warranty to March 2020.)

    I will keep you posted.
