$1000 is a joke, even for a trade in offer...

My guess is that car should be worth more around the 6-7k mark. In the current climate it might be hard to sell though.

Redbook have V6 VT's at around 3-4k... which is probably a little low and they have a reputation for grossly underestimating values...
just try and sell it privately for as much as u can,sum ppl who dont know much about cars will pay good money for it.
yea thats what i would have thought as well,

i guess there is a huge glut of used cars out there these days not selling , not to sure

but if it came down to $1000 i would keep it until it turns into dust , ffs dodgy old 1980 corollas pull 2 grand stilll

car yards just see it as a executive, if it was a calais or something theyd offer more but it would still be **** lol jus sell it privately

and in the eyes of most potential buyers, it decreases the value.
mods = thrashings in the eyes of most out there.

But on the Op's car. It does come up as $1200-$2700 trade. They are clearly looking at getting the best deal for them in reselling it. No matter what is said about adding on bits and pieces - They will use that as their selling point.
Try private sale $3000-$4500.

They are worth more to you then a trade or sale. Insurance for my car is between $8500-$13500 agreed value if written off. Can't beat that.

Fix it and sell it.

My friends Hyundai Accent bought for 7400 fom a used car dealer in minchinbury

Had it on car sales and all of a sudden ppl started ringing bout it, sold for 5000 which is pretty good.

Just be patient. Private sale and make your sales pitch better then everyone elses. 'Reliable, no money needed to be spent etc'

here's the brutal truth

I wouldn't pay more than $6k for the cleanest VT2 SS 6 spd man. out there.

Someone P platers might pay $6k for a VT v6 5 spd man. and good on them.

V6 autos would be $2 - $3k
