Divide that by 3 and you have a realistic sale value. Doesn't matter what color it is, OEM wheels don't add on any value. It's still only a compact car from a brand with horrible resale value. Shoot, my focus immediately dropped $6K the moment I drove it off the lot new; so sure as heck yours isn't worth anywhere near $15K.

Here's all the hatchbACK Focuses under 15K with less than 40k miles. Most of them are newer, under 20K miles, and under $13K.
