Park it near a college for a few hours and you will get calls BUT Lower the price @138k that is a lot of money given the KBB price and your desire to sell quickly.

I sold a 21 year old Japanese import very quickly by parking on a busy road by SUNY.

A dealer has to guarantee the car as well as make a profit so try asking a price in between what he offers and what you want for it for a quick sale.

I'm sorry but $1,400 is below the dealer's appraised price. Thanks for asking though. We can talk about it if your son can raise the number a little.

I'm going to agree with the other posters. Unfortunately the KBB value is for the car in mint/near flawless condition an is used primarily for the retail price of the vehicle.

A more realistic value would be KBB's "trade-in value" this will give you a better idea of what to expect.

Having seen many of these cars sell an knowing that "older" Mitsus don't hold their value, I would say to price it @ $2800 and expect to gdt $25-2600 if you need to sell quickly.

You also n to keep in mind that anyone perusing Craigslist for a car is most likely looking for something inexpensive, otherwise they would just head to a dealer, so make sure the car you list is well under the KBB value so the buyer feels as if theyre getting that deal. I guarantee I could get you $2500-$2800 in under days on CL.

If you would like some assistance you can mail me at jonthepcguy@gmail.com
