Not sure if you guys can help me. I just recently bought a new car and now I am trying to get rid of my old car which is a beige Acura 3.2TL. The car does have 123,722 Miles on it however it is still in usable/drivable condition. The only issues with the car is the fact that it needs a new muffler, new brake pads, the AC system needs to be repaired, and there are some issues with the speedometer not reading. That being said the car does have a sunroof and new tires. According to blue book the value is around $1,310 but with the above issues I figured the value of the car will at least be $100 less give or take the cost of repairs. Any mechanics here that care to chime in, since I am looking to sell to a private party since I want to know how much these repairs will roughly cost before I put up a price.

Yeah depending on the nature of the a/c problem those repairs could easily cost more than the value of the car and KBB value presumes everything is in good working order so I'd be happy with anything near $1k.

If you can get a 1000 for it, take the money and run... don't walk... run. The AC repair is what is going to cost you and it very well could cost more to repair than the car is worth. Also, generally, AC repair cannot be done in your home garage due to the refrigerant (well, the repair can be done, but the discharge and recharge should be done at a shop).

If I was in the market for a cheap Acura, I wouldn't spend more than 500 bucks on yours. Plenty of 1,000 dollar Acuras out there with working AC.
