Default Advice on selling my Accord

Sorry for the previous post - I scrwed up the title.

Hi

I want to sell my Accord EX 90 150k miles. It has some oil leaks here and
there, and also the radiator needs to be changed, so a buyer would need to
fix these, but the engine and trasmission are in good shape. Any ideas how
much it would be worth? Also, what's the best way to get rid of it: sell it
(ebay or locally?), trade it in, or simply donate it? Any useful resource on
the web on this?

Thanks,

A

Follow the pointers to used car appraising, buying, and selling.

You'll have to figure out the adjustment for the radiator and oil leaks. Maybe
get an estimate from a dealer or independent shop and present it to any buyer.

IIRC www.cartalk.com has a resource for car donations that I think benefit NPR.
I'd also google for "car donation." This seems an increasingly popular way for
charities to raise money. Should be some that take cars in your area.

Along with edmunds.com, try Kelly Bluebook
www.kbb.com

and choose used car value
and it will ask you for the model, year & mileage and other details about
your car. You can use it to estimate the rough selling price of your
vehicle.

A car this old will probably sell for no more than $2 - 3k, and probably
only a few hundred if traded in, given its condition. If the body and
interior are a bit beat, then probably the best thing to do is sell it
locally for what you can get.

If you are mechanically inclined, and the car is in otherwise nice
shape, then it might make sense to fix the oil leaks if they only
involve the pan or valve cover gaskets, and replace the radiator with an
aftermarket unit, but I would not invest more than a couple hundred
bucks and an afternoon or two of work to prepare it for sale. If the car
can make it through your local or state inspection, this is also a
good selling point but again, don't spend too much money to fix it up to
pass inspection.

Donating can make sense if you are already near the threshold for
charitable contributions, and you are in a high tax bracket, but find
out how much you can really write off.

Ebay will give you a national market, but one difficult problem there is
getting the vehicle to someone several states away, and handling
payment. Make clear how you wish to handle these in your ad if you go
this route, and state its condition honestly, but in the most reassuring
way you can. Get a feel for how similar vehicles are selling before
setting a reserve price. Too high a reserve will scare off potential
buyers, too low will leave you open to a lowball bid if the auction
attracts few qualified buyers.
