Market saturated?

I was thinking of trading my car for a 2010 camaro with 8k miles. the dealer said theyd give me 23k for mine IF i paid their asking price. Im not willing to pay what they are asking so I told them that.
They replied with "Jason then other thing to consider is most dealers are going to offer you $21,500 for your car there just not hot right now the market is saturated knowbody wants them. FYI"
Im pretty sure there are more camaros for sale right now then G8GTs even produced.
Nobody wants G8s? I find that hard to believe

Sounds like he was just saying what he had to in order to sucker you into a sale.

Now seems to be a poor time to trade in a sports sedan. Consider waiting until spring/summer if you can.

Current:
2011 CTSV coupe

Past:
2009 G8 GXP cammed and blown

Sales ploy.

Countermove: That's funny, you are the lowest offer I've received. Perhaps I'll be in touch if you're more competitive with my alternatives. Thank you for your time.

haha, yeah. my reply was a bit ruder than that, but I guess it said about the same thing.

"you have got to be kidding. there were only ~30,000 G8s sent to the US between 08-09. not even half are GTs and there are even less with the sport package, bluetooth, red interior and sunroof. a dealer here offered 23k without me buying anything from them.
saturated? please, there are more camaros for sale than G8s produced. there are 101 V8 G8s for sale w/in 300 miles of me. There are 575 used V8 Camaros."

i might have my G8 numbers off - Im not all that sure how many were made, but I was just trying to say there are a lot more camaros than there are G8s

That is the last release of numbers that I am aware of from GM.
So 38k+ for v6 and v8.

For s--t's and giggles I took my car to Carmax and another local dealer who offers to buy your car even if you don't buy ours. Carmax offered me $25,675 and the other dude says they will beat Carmax by at least a grand offered me $27,000 even, I currently owe $19,018 so I'm sitting pretty good. And to think I got the car for $30,000 out the door almost 3 years ago! God I love this car! (sometimes that is.)

Its a local place that offered me that. They basicly look at a Carmax offer and throw a grand on top of it, he offer $1275 more cause he liked the wheels.

The 2 G8's that they've had on thier lot were selling at damn near the price of a brand new one! Also local market plays a HUGE part in used car prices. Hell the dealer I go mine from STILL has a list of people looking for G8's so when they get them traded in they're already sold. GT's up here do not stay on the market long and I've never seen a GXP locally on any used car lots. V6 cars however seem to sit for months at the same dealers, no one wants them.

This. The cost of living is MUCH higher up here and also it can depend on the time of year too.
