So another month has passed. My price is down to $21,750. Not only has my car not sold yet, but I still haven't had a SINGLE bite on it. I'm baffled. I almost had a dealership I used to work at, agree to sell it on consignment for $21,000 even. But my old boss agreed to it before his boss ok'd it. So that fell through.

The dealership I bought the new one from, originally offered me $19,000 to buy it outright. Told me he may be able to offer more in the summer. He just emailed me and offered me $17,000.

I don't know what else to do. The car is a great car, in great condition. It's loaded, fast, powerful, fuel-efficient. It's listed everywhere, ebay (not anymore), craigslist, autotrader, cars.com and a few other random no-name listing sites. And I have a sign in the window, although I don't live on a high traffic road. All this and the closet thing I've had to a bite, is one random person that emailed me and asked me my asking price. They must have got my email from the window sign, I didn't have room for a price.

I'm not convinced about this dealership stuff either. I mean sure some people might prefer buying from a dealership. But I feel like just as many people prefer buying used cars from the individual, because they know they'll save about 33% or so. I bought a used blazer recently for $4000, dealerships with similar trucks were asking as much as $9000.

It would be one thing if people were busting my balls on my price. But it's like the car isn't even listed. I'm getting NOTHING (except a flood of scammers, of course)

Any insight would be appreciated, I'm completely baffled here.

I traded in my 2010 1lt RS in April for a 2012 2SS. The dealer offered me $17,000 at first. But I laughed at that and they eventually offered me 19,000. That's what I took. Dealer said they wouldn't go any higher.
My car had 26,000 miles, all the windows tinted, and an SLP exhaust. It was immaculate.
Here it is.

I've been buying and selling cars for my own personal use for 20+ years; I've found it all comes down to financing. Unless you have a small town bank where your on a first name basis with your loan officer most people can still only get loan value and few people have the usual 20% in there pockets to put down if you happen to be asking full book value and almost no banks will give financing for salvage or marked titles of any kind.

As for us "private party" sellers few big banks even offer financing for interested buyers, good deal or not!

If it helps I've found that Wells Fargo Auto Finance still does auto loans for private party so long as you've got a decent credit score and are willing to suck up the high interest. I know this personally since I bought my 08 H2 with high miles from a private party with an 8.9% interest rate and went to my credit union a month later and refinanced for 2.59%. Why the loan shuffle? My credit union doesn't do private party loans; refinancing no problem!

The months tick by and still this car sits in my driveway. I posted a new auction. I did things differently this time around. It's a 10 day auction. And there's no reserve. And the opening bid is $19,999. That's still higher than the highest bid I ever got on previous auctions. But it's insane to take less than that for this car. Yet, I need it gone like now. I only need one bid and the car is sold. But hopefully I get a few bids

You better be hoping that the high bidder pays up rather than hoping for multiple bids. eBay has a lot of kids that just like to bid for fun and never pay. Hope you get it sold this time. It's no fun having something for sale for that long with no buyers in sight.

4 days down, 6 to go. 240 views, 3 watchers, but no bids yet :/ I'm going to be seriously bummed out if this car doesn't sell.

The issue is you have a V6 manual. Yea, it might be fun but most people who went the V6 route (that you want to sell it too) want the automatic so its an easy fun to drive car with no worries. Then, throw in the fact that its a 2010 and its an even bigger problem.


First thing, change the font in your ad. Find someone that sells LOTS of cars and you will see what I mean. You have to get their attention.

Second, bring attention to your listing. Pay the extra .50 to get it up top (not sure if that is still the price).

Third, pricing. You have it priced pretty decent but you can get a brand new 2014 2LT for $28,432 with no haggling through truecar. That represents a 30% price drop for 3 years. Lots of people will just say, why not get the newer car that has a brand new warranty and blah, blah.

Forth, bring up the uniqueness of the '10. Different steering wheel than the new one. Better looks.

Final thing, look at other COMPLETED auctions and see how they described the car. If you try to talk them into buying, people will turn away. Just describe the car and let the people ask the questions.

My auction ( http://ipsite.org/1l52 ) is coming up on the last 24 hours. No bids yet :( but over 300 views, and I think I'm up to 6 watchers. I hope someone snipes the auction at the last second. That will make me very happy.

I really don't know what to do at this point. It's been 6 months and I can not get rid of this car. And the thing is mint. But nobody knows this, I haven't had a single person come check it out. The best ebay price i hit was $18,500ish. FYI the book is currently around $23,500. My CL price is all the way down to $20,500 and I'm still getting zero interest. I'm so glad I'm leasing the new one. This sucks. Had NADA and KBB told me the book value of my car was only $18,000, I probably wouldn't have bought a new one.

The fact you've had this car for 6 months shows that the asking price is out of tune with what people are willing to pay. If you want to sell it soon, looks like you'll have to lower the price even further, probably into the teens. Have you compared your asking price against what other similar cars have actually sold for (as opposed to ones that haven't sold yet)? Have you tried selling the car to a dealer?

My advice is forget what KBB or Edmunds say that your car is worth. If you really want to know log into Ebay look up your year, and look at completed listings. What you are looking for is what the bidding went up to on the unsold vehicles, and what the sale price was on completed listings. This will better give you an idea of where the price needs to be to garner interest. Hints any modifications typically lower the value of the vehicle.
