it comes down to just a few things.. Age, Miles and Accidents, Defects and Location...

You cannot ask retail because your giving no warranty, so asking $4900 like a dealer will never fly..

Your car is worth $1800 to $2500 unless you got a moron then maybe $3000... You can ask for $3500 and it might sell, but you will be waiting a LONG time, Just so you can get a idea... I bought a 2007 Focus with 38k miles for $2700 so it all comes down to luck.. is your best bet because 90% of the stuff you claim NEW!!! is maintenance and does not help price.

Its like a house purchase, 50% location and %50 square footage, very little if any has do do with extras or even a fresh coat of paint..
