Some of the 2007'* are probably on the dealer lots already. So it'* pretty much a 13 year old car with almost 100,000 miles. Normally I'd guess it would be worth $1,000 - $1,500. If your car looks half as good in person as in the pictures you may get a little more. What was the KBB price?

$2,695 is the private party value, rated as Excellent from KBB.

$4,400 is the high retail from Nada.

Honestly, I think your asking price is way off target. But, that'* just me. The used car market is flooded right now. Because the 3800 is so popular and reliable, finding the cars with that power plant is quite easy, and as a result, makes them a dime-a-dozen.

Thank Mark,

Here in Chicago it is hard to find a clean SSE, most are dented, dinged, rusted to hell and interiors are all ripped up and half the accesories don't work. This one is clean as you can tell from the pics. Im not desperate to sell, I just purchased a Lincoln LS V8 and just wanted to free up some cash, if not the bonne is one hell of a daily driver.

you should be able to get 2300 for it. since I picked up my car for about $1000 more than that but it also had $4000 recently invested.

Since you are asking how much... I'll agree your price is a little high even in immaculate condition.

That'* one of the things about the B'villes.. value is low, but while being a tank and getting good mileage..they run forever.

I paid $3,300 for my 97 SSEi

Value is in the eye of the buyer and most listed prices are moot. I still go to car auctions with my buddy/taxi fleet owner alot and while the listed prices here may be gotten here and there, Ted'* assesment is very realistic for a car that old. The car auctions are full of nice cars as well as badones. Most Dealers dont want to bother with something over 10 years old and just put them on the block regardless of condition.

That'* also how the "We Finance" (aka Lemon lots") dealers work, too. They're usually hooked up with dealerships to get the old or over 100K trade ins.

And value is definitely "in the eye of the beholder". Even KBB is just a rough guideline. That'* why mods don't add "value". Some people may be willing to pay more for certain mods (stereos, wheels, engine upgrades, etc), some will actually look at it as lowering the value (removal of original equipment).

Your best bet is to ask what you want for a vehicle or just a bit more (so the buyer can talk you down) and see what happens...
