What do car dealers consider normal wear and tear?

I am looking to trade in.

Sun fading of the paint, stretched and worn upholstery (but not cracked, torn or otherwise damaged), key marks around the locks, miles on the engine, or scuffs here and there.

It is anything that does not need replacement. If it has excessive wear then that is a cost to them.

Wear and tear on the engine is 15,000 miles or less a month, plus scheduled maintenance. The outside and interior can have minor flaws.
