Default 01 Odyssey LX want to sell, what kind of price can I expect?

Hello,

I know this is a bad climate to be a seller of used vehicles... But I will
nonetheless be selling my 2001 Odyssey. It has very low miles (31K) and an
extended warranty. The only extra is a Honda CD player in the dash. It is
silver.

I am in Dallas TX - what should I reasonably expect to get for it in this
sales climate? (I know from recent experience that the various black/blue
book pricing sites have no basis in current sales reality).

Also - will it help/hurt me (financially) to go through the expense of
repairing the deep dent in the passenger side sliding door? - a dent which
shows one of the interior rivets on the door skin like a grave stone rubbing
(estimate for factory-quality repair $1000; estimate for just popping out
the dent and applying paint touch up - $100)... Plus, my plastic wheel
covers are really curb-scuffed - will I get any value out of replacing
those? The car is mechanically sound, but you know people - they will
focus, as ever, on cosmetic stuff and use that to leverage me down.

Just interested in the perspectives of anyone who has recently sold an
Odyssey.

Thanks!

Bill

Prospective buyers will shy away from a car that appears abused. Scuffed
wheel covers and a big dent in the side would be more than enough to give it
that look. You will not be able to sell it for anywhere near its real value
if the damage is not repaired. TI used to host a car wholesaler behind the
former credit union building on Floyd Rd. (in Dallas) every Friday morning.
If he's still coming out there, you can get a good idea of what your car is
worth from him.
