Kia Optima resale value question...
I have a 2012 Kia Optima SX. It is in excellent condition. I have a question relating to the resale value as a result of the following events:
The car has 30,0000 miles. A few months ago it was in a rear ending accident. The front end of the car was rebuilt. I received a brand new engine. Long story short: The car as a whole has 30,000 miles on it. A month ago, when the rebuild was complete, the engine had 0 miles on it. Now I have a car in beautiful condition with 30,000 on the body and approximately 1,000 miles on the engine. I owe $19,000 on it. Would having the rebuild and the brand new engine allow me to sell it for excellent KBB value or does it not matter at all? I know the CarFax dictates things but its literally brand new. I'd like to sell it soon.
I'd like to hear your thoughts. Thank you
