Agreed. Private seller $3000, with very little more beyond that even if you did address the head.

New $10000
'04 $5000
'08 $2500
'12 $1250

A dealer may give you $500-$1000.

Matt89 If you're going to be buying a new car just because of the price gas, keep in mind that the cost of a new car and insuring a new car will definitely cost you way more than what you save on gas in the long run.

focusauto01 Thanks for the information. I was looking at going ahead and doing a head swap a few weeks ago, but I decided to go ahead and get the hybrid. Thanks for all the help. I got what I needed to know. I was hoping to get in between 2400 and 2800. Thanks again!

For some reason I've never had a really big problem selling cars, I guess its because where I live now. I'm located right in the smack dab middle of San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and Austin Texas. So I have Millions and Millions of people around me, so I guess that has always helped me because there is such a high demand between all the major cities I live right in the middle of. lol But thanks for the pricing guys, appreciated!

LouBomb SPI engine?

I would pay you not to sell it to me lol

but really about 2500~

mikeeshaq I am very sorry

You have a SPI engine that is known to drop a valve seat and very possibly destroy the engine.

If I had a friend who was looking at your car - I would simply say RUN!

VEGAS 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..
