Hello, Data from GoldBook.com: Fair condition: $5,000 Good condition: $9,000 Excellent condition: $15,000 Your low miles should give it a boost, probably adding up to a couple thousand dollars to any of these estimates. CarGrrl

That really depends. A few years back, the base price would have been around $10,000. However, your year can vary greatly depending on its options. Add 50% for a Silver Anniversary model, 50% for an L-82, and a silver Anniversary, L-82 combined (both options) was worth about $23-27000 about 5 years ago.

Keep in mind the difference between what the book says and what you will get for it, plus prices vary from state to state. In my area (mid-Atlantic states) they go for as low as 3 or 4000 in fair, drivable condition to 12 or 13 grand for an excellent example.
