My car is a 2003 Kia Optima, 6cyl. with 56k miles.
I want to sell it, but I've never done this sort of thing before, so I'd like some seasoned input.
I'm selling it because it's just not like me to own and operate a car. I've given in to society's expectations for too long. I'm more in tune with who I am when I don't own a car.
It has a salvage title. I don't know what type of accident it was in before I got it, other than a front end accident.
My brother gave it to me as a graduation present in 2006.
I've had it for over four years, and it runs good. The only problem I had was when the battery died last year and I bought a new one. The new battery is about eight months old.
I have all the receipts from all the work that has been done on it since I got it in 2006. It recently got a much needed paint job and a four wheel alignment.
How should I go about selling it? I'm going to ask for $2100, even though the KBB price is $5500. I'm taking into consideration that it has a salvage title and the economy is such that people who want a car that will get them from point A to point B probably can't afford the KBB price.
