Default What is my car worth? Possibly selling.

Hi guys. I am thinking about selling my ti soon and just wanted to get a feel of how much I could get for it. I know that KBB and Edmunds flat out undervalues our cars so...I am looking for some opinions. Linked are some pictures including the factory sticker showing what options my car has. The car has a little under 104k miles and has never been in an accident. Everything works fine...including the windows.

ALBUM NOW INCLUDES INTERIOR PICS! And one of the rear, which I realized was missing.

For the best view of the sticker, go to web album, click on the picture, and then zoom using the magnifying glass in the top right of the window. The thumbnail came out cruddy.

It's an active package with an Auto trans... Would sell for around $5000 in SF area, don't know about your area...

Good Luck if you decide to sell!

It looks super clean from here.

I would hold out for the right buyer and not go under 5 grand if you can.

It's a tough time to get top dollar right now, but there is a big $ difference between finding a buyer who really wants the car and some craigslist dirtbag who will make a low offer and sell it in a year.

Ebay is where you will get the most interest, but don't make the mistake of starting the bidding too high like a lot of people do.

Good: Very clean. Unique color. Would like to see interior pics to get a better idea.

I have purchased 2 ti's this year and have seen the good and bad in the market.

Bad: northern car/salt rds. between 125-150K, seals start to leak ($2K to replace all). AC tend to die (<$1K).

$3-4K w/ the right buyer seems about right taking these probable repairs into account.
The trick is finding a person that likes a niche car like this in such a unique color and condition.

Best wishes.
IMHO

Thanks to all those who have replied so far. You guys are really a great help. I will take some pictures of the interior for you guys tomorrow after school. It could use a detailing but its pretty clean overall.

I don't know of any AC issue with tis. I've owned two, and my brother has one-- none of them have had an AC system fail naturally. My brother's was driven into a pole or something and the condenser leaked, but with a can of stop leak it's good as new again.

Hmm. Well everything with my AC seems to be working fine for now anyway...no sounds or anything funky as far as I can tell. I still have to take interior shots...its on my mental to-do list. Thanks pnosker for your input. I haven't heard of any AC issues before either.

the active package includes cruise control and a multi-function on-board computer, you typically see them with leather, alloy rims, etc. but those are all separate options
