Fix before selling or not?
I have a black 1994 Honda civic hatchback Si (that I have had since early 1995). It has
high miles (but don't know exactly since the speedometer stopped working not too long
ago), and some minor damage on both doors ( dent, scratches), but the interior, AC, etc
are in fairly good shape. The problem is that it needs a new water pump and timing belt
and the shop estimated it to cost $800 to fix. Also, they did not put it back together after
they diagnosed the problem, so the car is not running. My family wants me to sell it, but I
question if I would get a good amount for it 'as is' and (not running, so needing to be
towed) or if I should fix it first (investing $800)- in other words, would I get that $800 back
or is it better to sell it not running (needing a new water pump and timing belt)? Not sure
if the area makes a difference, but I live in Central Florida (Clermont 34711).
Probably worth no more than $500-$1K fixed up. Sell it as is, a parts car. Do you have time to part it out? You might possibly make more money that way.
