2001 Avalon with some cosmetic issues is it worth fixing them to get a better price on a trade or to sell it or should I save the money and trade it as is.

Asked by May 18, 2014 at 08:03 PM about the 2001 Toyota Avalon XL

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Right now I think a dealer may offer me 1000.00 for my car but if I fix the cosmetic problems I can probably get a lot more. Car runs great. Also will it depreciate a lot more if I wait until Sept. to trade it in???

As for putting money into the car to get a better trade in value, I wouldn't recommend it... It isn't new enough or collectible somyou will put money into it and probably not get it back out and will most likely lose money... Remember, each dealer knows their sweet spot and what they will want to do to retail or wholesale a car, you don't know that, so something you think will ad value, may have no value to the...
