I want to sell my Focus

I've been thinking about it and I'm definitely wanting a different car. The focus is good, but I want something better. I still owe about $8,000 (yea, I know. a lot) though so I would have to sell it for at least 9 or 10. I can't imagine anyone paying 10 for it.

good luck on getting that much I have sceen them go for 9000 before at a dealership but they tend to ask a little more because they can get people financed for a little more easier. I have the same problem (I don't want to sell but owe allot more than it is worth guess that is the way life goes.

I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think your Focus is worth no more than $7000. This also depends on the mileage and condition.

If your looking to do better in the same class of car (economy compact) then you won't find better than the focus. If your moving on to a different class of car, then go for it. don't be fooled to think you will get a civic that is better than a focus..(or a neon, cavi, corolla ect.)

wait prettyinpink, didnt u just get your focus recently, why u wanna get ride of it so soon, and what are u looking to get in its place? This is why im so glad i put a down payment of more then half the price of the car, so that im not upside down. I just checked the kbb values and i could expect to get 10,400 from a private party, and about 9 grand for a trade in. And considering i only have like 3 or 4 grand left to pay thats awsome. But the private party vaule, man if i could sell it for that, considering i only paid 10500 for my car new(thats not including tax etc), thats pretty good especially after putting 5000 miles on it.

You bought your car new for 10,500 and put more than half that on a down payment and still owe 3 or 4K on an 03? What do you pay? Like $50/month?

no i pay around 120 per month, and ive had it since july of last year, and im paid of till july of this year, so thats roughly 1500 give or take and i put a down payment of about 6 grand on it. So yes i owe around 4 grand on the car. Oh and ur forgeting that i said 10,500 without taxes and stuff, so it comes out to alittle over 11 grand in total.
