Default What might this damaged 2001 Limited be worth?

It has front end damage and the repair estimate is around $1500. It only has 78,000 miles, but the frame has been bent and even if fixed a Carfax check will indicate it has been in an accident.

The tires and battery were new in January. It is the Limited Edition, green, with moonroof and the leather seats, automatic. I was hoping to get $1000 for how it sits, but is that realistic?

I had thought about getting it fixed and then selling it, but I'm afraid I wouldn't get too much more than $1000 over the expenses and wouldn't be worth the hassle. Besides, it is need of a steering pump and some front brake work.

Thanks in advance for any advice or help.

Welcome, you might be further ahead parting it out. Many members are looking for parts.

Not only is parting it out beyond my ability, it would not be possible where I live where a car that's even only 30% totaled would not be allowed for long. Sure wish I could though, but I do have a need to be rid of it as soon as possible.

Thanks for the welcome and the suggestion.

Here is a picture. The damage is to the driver's side front and the frame is bent. The estimate was under $1500, down from $2600 when they found it was not insured. It is a Limited Edition, shale green.

Doesnt look too bad. Prob too much to get it straightened out. You could get a decent trade on it. Heck I wish I could find somene locally selling a pt for a grand. Id love to have a parts car but u could get plenty by parting it out maybe more than a grand... But for selling it as a who,e a grand is a good price cause whoever gets it will either repair it enough and come out okay money wise, or will have to flip it and make a quick buck. Wat state are u in?

I just took $1000 offer for the car. Maybe I could have got a few hundred more by putting it on Craigslist, but I don't consider it to be worth the hassle for that amount.

Ironically, had it been repaired at the auto body shop where it has been for nearly 3 weeks this would not have happened. I called them on Friday, 20 may and they said they were just pulling the car into the shop and would work on it that day and the next week (which would have been last week). I drove by on Memorial Day and saw that the car was still sitting where it had been towed and nothing done.

I have been out of work for 7 months and I would have had to put the repair on a credit card and then go through the effort of trying to sell it. Maybe I could have got $1500-2000 over the cost of the repairs, maybe not. This way I'll take the $1000 in the hand without incurring any other debt or having to tow the car somewhere else to get it sold, not to mention the who knows how many more weeks that would take.

I have no doubt that the guy who is buying it will make money from it and flip it. He had some stock cars on display at the body shop so I'm sure he will be doing much of the work himself. He offered me $800, but I said $1000 and he said OK. Maybe I could have got more, but the $800-1000 range is what was on the table in the weeks it sat there although I didn't know that anyone was seriously interested in buying the car.

Thanks for the help though.
