    Trade-in values mean nothing on such a vehicle. Buyer needs to decide what he/she is willing to pay. A dealer would only pay maybe $1500 for it, if that. Of course, that is a dealer. $4k?
    OK, thanks @qbrozen - I'll advise my sister accordingly.

    Toyota and SoCal tax, perhaps? Or, first amendment rights with the asking price?

    Price would depend on whether that's something that will clear up with some antibiotics...

    @Michaell,
    That one is 2WD, so it's a Faux-Runner. :D

    In SoCal, no real reason to get 4WD, but I like your word play.
    Big Bear is in SoCal, and there's some excellent off-road trails for cars there. The Alltrack explored some of them and did well, but 2WD would not have done well through the muddy melted snow low spot puddles (that were pretty deep).

    RWD in Colorado? Is that even legal? This is a v6, I assume?

    Geesh, it would have to glow in the dark to even fetch $2500 at the block, so I wouldn’t go a penny more than $5k retail if it needs absolutely nothing.

    The CARFAX says it’s a Colorado, one owner car. One of the boys was with me and drove it home to show mom. Heard a lot of squealing (brakes?) when accelerating and braking and some sort of clanking noises hitting dips, pulling into driveway. It’s a one price dealer, @Michaell is familiar with them, so no negotiating.

    What is the appeal of this vehicle, exactly? The RWD in Colorado? The squealing (brakes?) & clanking noises? The 171K miles? For $6500??? Q. says $2500 "if perfect" at auction, & this thing ain't perfect.

    That’s correct, looks great inside and out but that was it. We politely passed, even after we were told it wouldn’t last the weekend, like that’d make me a buyer.

    Clunking on bumps is often a sign of bad bushings, which is not surprising at all for a car with 150K+ miles and/or 15+ years old. On most cars, these are all still original and most people never condition the rubber. It is not a major issue, though it is one that should be addressed.

    Aging shocks can also increase the severity of the symptom if they are not quick on the recovery. It always amazes me how far people will let shocks go beyond their prime. I find no auto maintenance activity more satisfying than replacing worn shocks; it is almost like buying a new car. :D

    nice ad. Other than the rust on the rear fender lip, looks nice and clean. Steep miles but if it starts without a cloud of smoke, and drives and stops normally, great deal for that price.

    It was sold two years earlier by a local used-car dealer for $2... it needs tires, headlights, and a grand of suspension work.... it really isn't worth much... but it''s driveable as is, which is a big deal.

    Hello,

    Looking to get an idea of what I can expect in a trade in value for 2018 Dodge Durango GT Blacktop Pkg RWD, Redline Red Exterior with Performance Hood. I have attached the window sticker as well for reference.

    Vehicle in Maine...1 Owner, 28.6k, maintenance up to date, Very Good condition, was bought in Texas and always garaged. I just moved back to Maine so its only seen one winter season, but still garaged.




    Thank you in advance!

    I don't think I can answer requests right now. Mannheim has ceased most operations, and a Durango hasn't crossed the block in 9 days. My info would be severely outdated in this climate, and it would be a disservice to mislead people.

    Not sure I'd feel comfortable buying from home and having them bring it out. I'd like to see their whole selection and drive a few to make sure I was getting the right model personally. So much easier if they have the exact model in stock and you've driven it before this insane nonsense began.

    These days quality is overall so good and consistent I don't worry about trying out the specific unit. I did make sure to look at build date and pick the freshest one (which just happened to be the one we test drove anyway). certainly take a look at it before accepting though.

    our car actually had a 2/2020 build date, and we first test drove it on 3/7. Had not been prepped and actually only had the delivery gallon of gas, so my wife had to stop for gas before the test drive. And since it only had 5 miles, including our test drive, I know it was fresh!

    It’s typically located in the bottom of the driver’s door jamb. It is a small placard with VIN and manufacturer the info. Often it’s next the the tire inflation/tire size placard.

    Avocado toast isn't all that bad if you add two sunny side up eggs on top, some bacon crumbles, cheese and salsa.

    Of course by then any healthy aspects of it are long gone!
