Default What'* it worth?? (not a Bonnie)

What would you guys think a 97 Cavalier with 178,000 miles would be worth?

Contrary to the miles, it'* in excellent condition and only has one minor dent. Everything works on the car. It'* just a two door with an automatic and a/c.

Any of you interested in buying it??

You can probably get 3000, but the miles will hurt it no matter what.

Kelley Blue Book

Private Party Value $1,575
Private Party value represents what you might expect to pay for a used car when purchasing from a private party. It may also represent the value you might expect to receive when selling your own used car to another private party.


Retail Value $3,615 (without the dent(*) or blemishes)
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle. The Suggested Retail Value is a starting point for negotiation therefore the actual sale price will vary. Popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions will be factors involved in determining a final price. This retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.

Consumer Rated Condition: Good
"Good" condition means that the vehicle is free of any major defects. The paint, body and interior have only minor (if any) blemishes, and there are no major mechanical problems. In states where rust is a problem, this should be very minimal, and a deduction should be made to correct it. The tires match and have substantial tread wear left. A clean title history is assumed. A "good" vehicle will need some reconditioning to be sold at retail; however major reconditioning should be deducted from the value. Most recent model cars owned by consumers fall into this category.


Private Party Value $2,005
