I know a couple of y'all regret your choice to buy an ID.4.

This guy on reddit sold his to Carvana for 42k. Don't know if you can get the same price but it's worth a shot.
Sometimes new vehicles purchased are not always a fit with everyone. I have had phones and computers I did not like from the git go and sold them within a week after I purchased them. For me the ID4 is a great fit. And will be even better when VW gets some software updates out!

That is so true. I sold my Honda Pilot for a loss after 2 months from purchase multiple years ago. It just wasn't for me. I've entirely enjoyed the ID 4 so far and always find a reason to drive it out with the knowledge that I get free charging at work and at a 50 kwh station. With 1700 miles on it, I've probably paid less than $5 on home charging when I need to charge to 100% (rarely done knowing the battery degradation theory and all) for a long trips.

I hated Tesla Model3 from first day due to road noise and slowly parts failed making me to sell it and buy ID4. Love it for quality and finish. Interior ride is good enough for me. Yes less acceleration than Tesla but I am not in racing or rough driving. Id4 is good enough. Saves tires which is major cost on performance Teslas at 10k miles.

well... i must admit, whenever the thought of other EVs (Tesla for example) creeps into my mind, the thought gets squashed as I think abt free charging for 3 yrs with my ID4. ;)

To be honest, if I could sell my ID.4 for $42k next week I would do it. I would replace it with a new ID.4, though.

Meh the extra money you get from the tax credits would be wiped out by transaction costs like sales tax. Not worth the trouble. 😂

Here in D.C., there's no sales tax on EVs, so... we'd come out narrowly ahead. But it'd still be enough logistics that I don't think it'd be worth the bother.

The only car I hated enough to get rid of it was an Acura TSX wagon. Thankfully 2 years used, great price on the purchase, 6 months later sold it to a different Acura dealer who basically paid off my loan.

I didn't really come out even on the transaction, having paid sales tax and used my trade in as a deposit (100,000 mile Subaru, no great loss there).

But walked across the street with no debt and picked up a similarly used Audi wagon which I adored.

After that I'm much more critical of my car purchases. I don't want to be in that situation again. But I'm curious how much I left on the table but not getting quotes from CarMax and whoever else was around in 2015.

Tangentially related: I have a host of Makita 18V tools, mostly as I started with their quintessential drill & impact driver set and just stayed with that battery type. They have all worked hard and very well except ... at a point I decided I 'needed' a brad nailer and got theirs. It jammed on me almost from the git go and most every session thereafter. Not good when you've glued up a project and are therefore on the clock! It's the only tool I've literally thrown away in anger (no, I don't throw my golf clubs or anything else).
Although a totally different battery configuration I replaced it with the Milwaukee Fuel and it's been flawless.
So no, not always a fit in this case .... but my ID.4 happily is. Off to continue working my grandkid's tree house (more like a condo with a deck). ;)

I had a VW minivan and hated it so much I got rid of it in 6 months. Fortunately it was the last one the dealership i bought it from ever had and they just wanted to get rid of the thing so I got it cheap enough that little was lost in the transaction.

Was this the "Chrysler" Routan? I always thought it was bizarre that VW rebadged a Town & Country. I know the techs didn't exactly love working on them.
