Repair or sell as is?
Our 2002 Honda Accord EX (196K) needs repairs valued at $1200 (new brake line, rear brake calipers). Kelley Blue Book value for private party sale in excellent working condition is around $3,000. I just got new front and back brake pads and rotors and otherwise the car is in excellent condition, looks good, and has been well maintained throughout. Should I get the repairs done and then try to sell it online or sell it as is? If the latter, who would buy a car with malfunctioning brakes? A scrap dealer? An auto mechanic? What kind of price might I expect to receive then? I'm trying to figure out the math. Advice gratefully received.
