My three cars have still not sold. It looks like my dream of a SKY are about to be dashed to the ground and discarded into the trash bin with most of my other dreams. I can not afford the car without selling my others.

It looks like I will have to call the dealership and let them know that they can have my yellow redline w/ automatic and monsoon, because I can't afford it.

I was #3 on my dealers list when they first started to take the orders, and I have the order # for the car. I am so depressed.

Hey, why you giving up so soon? Isn't still going to be awhile before the R/L is even ready to buy? I think you should still have time to sell your cars? Guys, Ladies what do you think?

Did you take your cars to carmax ??? Have you gone back to see if you can get the trade in amount increased ? Take the printout from Kbb or edmonds with the trade value on it. Does you state adjust for the sales tax when you trade in a car ? What year car and what's in the car ???

I don't know what you have in the car so I put some items that I think and your dealer is right in line with trade value. The problem is there are so many PT Cruisers.Go to Kelly blue bood and add what ever you have that I didn't put on. I didn't know if it was a touring or turbo ect.

Blue Book Trade-In Value
Trade-in Value is what consumers can expect to receive from a dealer for a trade-in vehicle assuming an accurate appraisal of condition. This value will likely be less than the Private Party Value because the reselling dealer incurs the cost of safety inspections, reconditioning and other costs of doing business.


Vehicle Condition Ratings Check Vehicle Title History
Excellent
$12,375
"Excellent" condition means that the vehicle looks new, is in excellent mechanical condition and needs no reconditioning. This vehicle has never had any paint or body work and is free of rust. The vehicle has a clean title history and will pass a smog and safety inspection. The engine compartment is clean, with no fluid leaks and is free of any wear or visible defects. The vehicle also has complete and verifiable service records. Less than 5% of all used vehicles fall into this category.

Good (Selected)
$11,600
"Good" condition means that the vehicle is free of any major defects. This vehicle has a clean title history, the paint, body and interior have only minor (if any) blemishes, and there are no major mechanical problems. There should be little or no rust on this vehicle. The tires match and have substantial tread wear left. A "good" vehicle will need some reconditioning to be sold at retail. Most consumer owned vehicles fall into this category.

Fair
$10,275
"Fair" condition means that the vehicle has some mechanical or cosmetic defects and needs servicing but is still in reasonable running condition. This vehicle has a clean title history, the paint, body and/or interior need work performed by a professional. The tires may need to be replaced. There may be some repairable rust damage.

Have you tried auto trader.com?

I sold my Miata in one week on auto trader. I think it works better than ebay. Just my opinion.

I agree with AutoTrader.com. My Miata sold in 3 days.

I got my SKY earlier than expected, and hadn't even put the Miata up for sale yet. Posted the ad the day I took my SKY home, and sold it 3 days later. I got TONS of calls on it, too.

I sold my '91 MR2 Turbo the day I posted on Auto Trader. The guy came by the next day and bought it for more then I paid 3 years prior. The Toyota dealer wanted to give me $1500 for the car, but it was in EXCELLENT condition so I laughed at him and said I would sell it the next day for $6000 on autotrader.com. He told me there was no way. The next day I told him I had sold it on AutoTrader for $6,000.00 and he couldn't believe it. You gotta go auto trader. Also be sure to detail the cars, this will help them to sell better.:thumbs:

I agree auto trader is the bast place, but you have to know the value of the car. I know someone that put their Jeep on auto trader and got no replies, it was worth 14800.00 when you went to KBB or edmonds but was asking 21,000.00. It didn't sell. He finally sold it out of the news paper and got 15,000.00. But it cost him around 500.00 to place all the ads on ebay,auto trader and newspaper.

Point is know the value and don't ask alot more then the book value because you aren't going to sell it.

AutoTrader makes it simple, it's like selling stocks. Look at what everyone else is selling theirs for in a similar condition. Then make your price competitive. Too easy.:thumbs:
