A dealer would probably be asking more but you can always offer less.

I want to sell my care to a private party. I am not buying a car from a dealer. Do I set my price based on the "Great Deal Price" shown by Car Guru?

Sweet vehicle. You should have no problem selling it.


It all depends on how fast you want the car to sell.


Worked for a dealer for years.avg nat profit on a used car is 3000 bucks/private sale add three ground
