What is the asking price? NADA and KBB give a fair estimate of retail and trade in value. I assume the prices you are quoting are for retail as I did not look it up myself. Therefore, retail is what you would expect to pay as a ballpark figure, but depending on mileage and farkles you might expect to pay more or less than retail exponentially with a lot of farkles and few miles and inversely with little or no farkles and high miles.
That said, if the owner is asking for only retail then you have a good deal given the low miles and dealer maintenance. He might be asking for more, and depending on how much more, it could still be a good deal. I bought an '05 from a dealer in May of last year. 4800 miles and I gave $17,500. It had some farkles like passenger armrests, floorboards, and a few others, plus a Garmin thrown into the mix. Not a steal, but still a fair deal.
