Selling Tercel - need some suggestive prices
I'm trying to sell a car and want to know if people would give me some
suggested prices. I don't expect to get much due to it's condition. I'd
like to sell for about $500. I have someone that wants to buy for $300, but
I feel like that might not be a fair price. I know there are alot of issues
with this car, but most is just beautification. I've had 3 mechanics look
it over and deem it road-worthy. They all said most of the issues are not a
concern and/or is not worth the repairs.
I've looked the vehicle up on kbb.com and it's valued 3rd party at about $800.
Mileage: 300,000 (Estimated)
Engine: 4-Cyl. 1.5 Liter
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
-Recent front end accident. Minimal damage caused - front right headlamp and turn light mounts damaged, hood latch damaged.
-Transmission has an estimated life (if used daily) of 6 months.
-Feels as if gears slip during high reving.
-Battery leads should be cleaned possibly replaced.
-Right motor mount slighty loose.
-Minor rips/tears to interior.
-Minor chips/scratches to the paint.
-Minor dings and dents.
-No present rusting.
-Passenger window crank is missing cotter pin.
-No radio (stolen - harness still present).
-No AC. (optional equipment)
1 mechanic (not a reputable shop) said I "should" replace the transmission "in a car that old" at "his" shop. I don't hold much weight in his opinion, but I listed his statement anyway.
3 mechanics stated the motor mount was loose, but isn't loose enough to cause concern and, currently, is not worth the money to have it repaired. That was their "professional" opinion.
1 retired mechanic told me I should replace the battery leads (the cables that attach to the battery), at the least clean them.
Please write me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with what you would estimate the value at.
