    Run it through Kelly blue book, then state your issue, the market will bear what the market will bear.
    Kbb gives you outright, trade in prices, err, wholesale retail prices, easy peasy;)
    What issues?

    But maybe not

    Guess this is a place that is good as any.
    I bout my o6 a couple years ago, with a rough body, I mean scratches and one front bumper ding area.
    I just wanted some transportation for highway trips, bought it at 143k, now has 160 k.
    Runs great, I have done the maint. Hybrid battery replaced at 138k.
    I looked at Kelly, and I think the car might be worth 4,000, I have listed it at 4,600, to have some room to bring it down in price. I just hope I'm not stuck with it. I really don't need the extra car.

    Will miss you guys too, I might be on longer , if it doesn't sell.
    The guy I bought it from, is a local professor, so I think the car got keyed a lot.
    Can you add photos in this thread, I never have.

    If you replaced with new Toyota battery I think that is a good selling point

    He must have been a tough grader Bisco, plus he had a edgy personality.
    That's right Tracy, it attracted me, with Battery replaced.

    Got a handshake with a young guy , who wants to buy my Prius today.
    WoW, he was the first one to look at it.
    He was familiar with gen 2, his mother has one.
    I dropped the price down a bit for struts and shocks.
    Was wondering what front struts cost for a pair,
    Then what the rear shocks cost?
    Just a ballpark, including installing .

    Was surprised to see how many views for this post, people were trying to figure out what it was about.
    Well sold my o6 for 4100.00 today to a excited 24 year old guy, well centered.
    I would say in general most folks on here were really kind, esp Bisco and Patrick Wong , and others.
    There were some extreme jackasses I met on here, but they are the ones that can't make it in the real world.
    My sorrows go out to them.
    It's been fun.
