The dealer may be making a very minimal profit on the car, depending on what was needed to inspect and recondition the car. If they paid $19 for the car, asking for $22K seem very fair to me. Besides, what they paid for the car has no bearing on it's actual value, which according to your research is higher than they are asking.
Depending on where you are and what the taxes and fees are, $22k on the road seems beyond fair.
