Selling a car privately is a HUGE PIA. I would rather lose a few grand by trading it in then deal with the enormous headache of dealing with tire kickers and deadbeats.
I agree 100%. I saw cars like mine on Trader and one at Pfaff for $31-$35,000......unfortunately thats the asking price. Wholesalers don't want them. Mine had 87,000km so that plays a big part.
