Peter, your not going to get anywhere with an ad like that. People want to see what the car looks like (pictures) and they want to know where your located (did you say Saudi Arabia) and they want lots of information about the car, not that you just put new headlights in it.

IMHO..............

It depends on the area you live and what other car's are available like PT's? They sell very fast in the Sacramento,Ca area. You can review dealerships and follow how well they do here. CARMAX also has a good selling history of them everywhere.

E-bay also seems to do fairly well if you follow a few listed there?
Craigslist has never been a good way to determine how well sales do on cars? hard to track a sale and no real rhyme or reason to the pricing?


Where is our resident Car salesman? Danny what say you?

Well as far as sales in my area go, nothing is going on. Economy is in the toilet. Worst times In my lifetime. And they say we are on the right track! Back to your question. Without any of the information those before have suggested. I find you are asking close to retail car lot price of $5300. The private party price is more like $4000. Now mind you that's with out any info other than what you provided. Condition , mileage, and color will also influence buyers.

Danny, Resident car salesman

I cant see where you are but assuming you are in Europe (Europe forum section) then it would seem the average pricing would be as follows:-
2003 models
Petrol = 2000
Diesel = 3000
Depending on milage etc.
Last year I paid 2000 for my 2004 purple, manual, CRD Classic with 97,000 miles full service history as the guy needed to sell but the forecourt price then was 3500.

But, I would like one myself (ours belongs to the wife) and I have been looking around and you can pick up a 2003/2004 for less than 2000 easy.
petrol models are very cheap due to the UK charging 1.38 per litre (6.27 Gallon) and the cars only returning 25mpg average.

Diesels returning 42mpg make it a better option so they hold the price better.

Very interesting read. Yes the wives usually end up with the PTs.

That's why we have twins!


Btw, my wife's 05 gt vert w/105 k that had timing belt replaced at 80k was purchased for less than 5000 from a dealer. The poor guy who traded only got 1500 on trade, what a shame. The dealer did replace windshield, 2 new tires, and abs sensor. This is a better deal than most I've seen but is an indication of real world selling trends for our pts.
