    Shouldn't you be nearly paid off on that thing?
    $600/mo even if you've only been paying for 36mo you've paid $21,600. Sure, subtract interest and it would have run you around $27k new, but still it's gotta be nearly paid off. And as many miles as you're putting on it you're going to have a hard time finding something comparable that'll save you as much on gas.

    In any case, good luck with your asking price, I think you're about $4000 over market price for an '04 with that many miles.

    Not saying you can't/shouldn't sell, just seems like the numbers might be in your favor to keep it if at all possible.

    Even you are overly optimistic with your valuation. Depending on the condition of the car, the Kelly Blue Book values a fully loaded 2004 Prius (with aftermarket premium wheels, as I recall that the OP has those) as follows for private parties transactions in San Jose, CA 95101:

    Condition Value

    Excellent $16,115
    Good $14,970
    Fair $13,455
