    Hello. I want to sell a 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Cargo Van extended version 170" WB Crew with 3.0L v6 7A Turbodiesel. Has 192k miles.

    Fully loaded, High Roof and Wide rear door version. 1 owner. Used on long distance Hwy's. Maintained regularly.

    Equiped with optional features such as:

    • Active Brake Assist
    • Hold function
    • 10.25in touchscreen with Navigation and LTE
    • Hill-start assist
    • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC
    • Heated mirrors
    • Heated seats
    • Blind spot alert
    • Crosswind Assist
    • Traffic Sign Assist
    • Active Lane Keeping Assist
    • Attenstion Assist
    • Parking package with 360° camera
    • Rain sensor
    • Headlight Assist
    • Electrical seats
    • Engageable all-wheel drive with gear reduction
    • Acoustic package
    • Wooden floor

      and more...

    It is very difficult to determine the values due to the high mileage. I just paid off the loan which was still at $55k so it would be sad to sell it lower than that. Could you please help with determining the real value?

    The diesel makes that high mileage less important but $55k? Have you looked at Craigslist or dealer listings for comparisons?

    Not exact match but this is what I found.

    Those are so much older, though.

    Being so young but having such high mileage is going to make this near impossible. Only thing to do is shop it around and find the best offer. Try Benz dealers. They are desperate for Sprinters.

    That’s all I could find on a quick 2 minute CL search. There might be more in his own area or in dealer inventory. I just thought $55k was a lot to expect but what do I know, my cargo vans cost under $2k.

    I’m still not seeing $55k but this is more optimistic. I’m surprised they go for that much.

    I cannot find any similar 2020 Sprinter 2500 that is the extended cargo version with 4x4, high roof and fully loaded (with 360 camera, all packages including safety features), and is not a passenger van (these are selling for $70-75k with less features).

    I bought the vehicle new for $70k but it was right before the car market prices raise and it included lots of discounts.

    That's why I suggest fielding offers from multiple dealers. There is no way we can narrow down a real value for you.

    Our fully loaded passenger 4x4 is $68k sticker. Zero discounts, of course. Low roof extended.

    In Louisville KY, haven’t shopped it with the Subaru dealer as a trade, wondering if it’s realistic to do so…

    2015 Acura RDX AWD w/ Technology package
    94k miles
    Brown exterior/beige “parchment” leather int
    Tires have 55k on them but depth is probably 5/32
    Front and rear brakes have 9k on them
    Just passed 7 years in service but MM 4 did not come up for timing belt and spark plugs

    Carvana was 18,9 last month but crashed to 15,5
    Carmax was 16,6… what are the odds I could do better?

    Hi, I’m looking to sell my elderly relative’s 1997 Toyota Camry LE. It’s an original owner car with just 69K miles. It runs great and everything works. It has a 4 cylinder engine, one year old battery and newish tires.

    It’s never been in an accident but has a cheaply repainted rear bumper from a parking lot mishap. The bronze paint is in good condition with a few dings and scratches. The interior is in “like new” condition.

    I’m not looking to maximize value by selling privately. I would probably shop it around to a few used car lots, but have no idea what it’s worth in the current environment. Car is in central NJ (08753 zip). Thanks in advance.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Member Posts: 32,929
    Start by getting buy bids from carvana, vroom, ALgo (autolenders), and Autonation. Given the age, they probably won't be interested, but at least it gives you a variety of bids from the comfort of your computer. Report back with those numbers.

    I’d almost be willing to drive down to NJ and pay you cash as that’s just the kind of car I’m attracted to. Unfortunately, my driveway is full right now but there must be tons of people like me that want low mileage transportation.

    Buy bids from online sites like Carvana are a good start but dealers usually aren’t as interested in a 25 year old car as they would be on something newer. Maybe a small local lot would give you a better price. Your best bet is probably Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. In this market I bet it wouldn’t last a day.

    The Edmunds TMV calculator on that car in clean condition is about $2100 trade-in or $4200 private party.

    Put it at the end of your driveway for a day and see what happens.

    I have a 21 MB C300 4MATIC in black with 16k miles. I had carmax do an appraisal at 40k. Dealer is offer 37k (dealer is in 21030). The problem is I have to trade back into mercedes because it's leased through them, but I think 37k might be a low ball based on kbb values, but idk how much those matter. Car is in perfect condition other than some minor damage that can be fixed on one wheel.

    There are a few mercedes dealers to shop the trade value in to but I found one that has a subaru dealership on the same lot, allowing us to buy a new subaru crosstrek. Otherwise we have been shopping used on mercedes lots because we want to get out of the mercedes payments.

    If that's the case price it at $50K and see if you get any suckers.
    Then just lower the price $5K per day until it sells.

    What the heck..? This thread is coming back to life? Ex-cellent.!

    I'm back in the saddle in automotive academia, finding cheap running-around cars for post-docs and the like in mid-Michigan. So far this year:

    2011 Subaru Impreza 5door automatic, good shape, 120k miles, $1,500 -- that was an inside deal, nothing wrong with the car, but it was $500 over the trade-in offer of the Subaru (!) dealer... on a new Crosstrek.

    2008 Hyunday Elantra, maintained, soft suspension, 100k miles, nothing obviously wrong. Another sweetheart deal around $1-$2k from an established faculty member to a a new theorist from Belgium. The two eminent physicists talked shop while I checked out the car... I'd'a thought my 'customer' might be interested in how to check out a car, but I guess she realized that theorists should keep their hands in their pockets when they're not on the keyboard....

    2009 Pontiac Vibe, from the wilds of FB Marketplace. One owner, all its life in the rust belt, looked OK, no major accidents, soft suspension, signs of maintenance, clean 'enough' and 120k miles. 1.8 liter engine, automatic, newish tires. Asking $3,900 and dang if he didn't make us pay every penny. A good deal in the present market.. for a 15-year-old car. I can't even.

    From my favorite dealer -- car #1 originated there many moons ago:
    2017 Impreza 135k, 4 door, AWD of course, leather, sunroof (Limited? Doesn't say) -- it's the first year of the redesign on the Legacy platform. Clean carfax, asking $5950 and I'm inclined to think it's a good deal. Needs to be driven, obviously. This dealer usually sells his cars in a matter of days.

    This just sold: 2016 VW Jetta, 149k, 1.8l turbo and 6ps automatic, no major hits for sure, leather(ette) interior, clean, signs of maintenance, quality tires. $5850 asking price and probably got close to it. I was not recommending this one for our post-doc, since this would have depleted her funds and a repair on a VW turbo is no fun. Stout engines if maintained to a T, though.

    Most of these are for entertainment, but I'd love an opinion on the 2017 Impreza.

    While we're here, I've got a 21 5door/5sp that I had to special-order to get the stick. It turns out I love it, it's not a strong engine but it's willing and feels light on its feet. This from a guy who swapped his MT 2014 Outback against a Grand Caravan and called it a good deal.

    Meanwhile, in Alaska, The 2011 Impreza was probably $5,500 (private party) and the 2017 Impreza would be around $12,000 at a dealer. LOL

    I'm a little out of practice and forgot these:

    Red but no obnoxious, 115k.
    Two owners, exceptional condition, decent but mismatched tires, nice alloys.
    Good Carfax w maintenance, one minor tap to left rear. Spent all its life near Detroit.

    Try to guess first. 12 y old rust belt car.
    Asking 8900.

    2) this might be of interest to me. A buddy likes his 2011.

    2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L
    Silver, sunroof, 150k.
    Ok condition, not special, not bad.
    History unknown. Mastercraft tires.

    No price yet on it.

  • stickguystickguy Member Posts: 50,500

    Accord is an expensive winter beater. That is where the cheap leases came in handy. For about that much on $250/month special you could drive a nice new car through the salt and give it back with 3 years of corrosion and no maintenance costs. The accord will have $ needs and might be insafely rotted bu the end so. Worth nothing much.

    Terrain = in the $22k's ... unless that ding shows on carfax, in which case more like 20.

    how many cylinders in that Accord? About $7k trade for a 6-cyl and closer to 7500 for 4. 7500 and 8k, respectively MMR.

    7500-8k on the Ody. Plus $500 MMR.

    Thanks Q,
    Silly of me. V6 auto , which is not implicit in EX-L.

    I was putting my personal pain threshold somewhere between 7 and 8k on the Ody. Lots of car though. I'll have to see, the last Ody on the lot sat for 3 months before it sold.

    What does

    Plus $500 MMR

    mean?

    I get MMR = Manheim Market Report, but I thought that's what the "7500-8k on the Ody" was...?

    Thanks a bunch for all the above.

    MMR is typically higher than trade-in value. Sometimes $1k, but I’m being generous for hondas. Lol.

    I'm not sold on Hoovie's (and his girlfriend's) new channel, trying to do a the equivalent of a morning talk show on YouTube.

    My Volt must have had a weird ownership history, especially since it's had three previous owners. The window sticker and quick start guide were still in the glovebox (although the owner's manual is MIA). The interior looks mint for 100k miles, save for a little compressed foam on the driver's seat bolsters. I found the OE mesh-like cargo cover in a bin in the trunk, apparently never used. And the GM tire inflator kit with expired slime. Someone appeared to have used the air compressor at some point, because it was put back in its case the wrong way.

    Cleaned off some old stickers and sticker residue on the windows. Charging it up tonight and going to see how it fares on a highway trip to go hiking tomorrow, weather permitting. Some of GM's marketing for the Volt indicates that people average 1,000 miles on a tank of gas, which seems very reasonable for people with short to medium commutes who plug in and fully recharge almost every night, but it would also be interesting to confirm for myself, especially since nearly all of my miles are non-commuting miles. (For context, I usually work from home four days a week, and my office is about a mile from my house, although the location is likely to change within the next year.)

    2015 S4 Misano Red Prestige edition with sport diff, black optics, B&O audio, Nappa leather, DSG, 67K miles with a highly likely dirty Carfax from my minor incident rear ending a Lumina that cracked the grille and headlight (minor damage). Do I have to disclose it has an engine with only 21K miles?

    Very good condition clean car.

    disclose to whom? Private party? You should. Dealer? Only if they ask, IMHO.

    I really can't give an accurate value. Clean is about $18.5-$19k trade. Personally, I'd knock this down to $15k, but I don't think most dealers would hit it as hard as I would.

    A new engine is a great thing if it's (i) a new engine, not something "low mileage" pulled from some other car, and (ii) done right, which is hard to know for a buyer. So I wouldn't think of that as either a negative or a positive unless I knew more about it.

    Most sellers won’t mention it.

    That’s the key question, isn’t it, ‘if it was done right’? How would you prove that to a buyer, receipts from a dealer? If that proof was available a new replacement engine would be a positive to me.
