Is this car paid off yet? (Guessing the answer is Yes). Chryslers have low resale value, even in excellent condition. My thought is that the Dealer would NOT want to take an '06 Sebring with crash damage to the doors. They try to make $$$ on trades by lowballing you on the trade in value and then try to resell it on their lot. Doubt that they want to spend the $$$ to fix the doors, THEN try to resell it. My advice: Get an estimate on repairs, fix if it makes sense, then possibly trade in.

I tried doing that once, they would only give me give me wholesale price less the cost of the repairs, and that was not enough for even a 5 percent down. So as it was covered by insurance I got it fixed then trading it in and got a lot more for it.
