The 5sp is hard to find and people are looking for them , I just paid 3450.00 for a 2013 S 5speed with 113,000 on it and was happy to find it

Wish that were true. Trying to sell my 2016 5-speed SE hatch and the only people interested are low-ballers or dealers wanting to screw me even worse.

Very few people want to daily drive manuals & 113k is a ton of miles for a Ď13. Thatís why itís worth 3.4k & my Ď13 Hatch is worth 14k.

No it's not. Put it up for sale at that price. You'll never sell it.

I honestly think you're trolling the board when you say this and I've ignored it up until now.

Yep it will. Do some research. Ď13 Hatch, single owner, no accidents, clean carfax, 38k miles, Silver w/black interior, Titanium trim & factory 18Ē wheel/tire package, no door dings, interior immaculate etc. Thereís probably less than 5 total in the country with less than 40k miles & mine is the cleanest. CarMax & Ford Dealers have those listed at about 13-14k.

Your car is not worth Jack especially with that transmission. All you do is run your mouth. You are a annoyance, a run your mouth all day do nothing to back it up annoyance.

Címon man, you know that a Ď13 Titanium Hatchback w/38k miles has a little more resale value than that, just look at them on CarGuruís & youíll see. And I must say that even though the DCT is sluggish itís still a better D/D vs. a manual in major traffic cities. The constant upshift/downshift a million times to drive 5 miles gets old fast.

As someone who has driven his 5-speed to Deal's Gap and Pikes Peak, yeah the car is definitely good at handling for a compact. I wonder if Ford and Mazda really does go hand-in-hand for great-driving compacts before the split?

But yeah back to the topic, my car on KBB is worth $1500 and yet most dealers around here would maybe buy it for $1000, and probably auction it as soon as possible. And they have been quoting me at $1000 for over a year now. Not that I really cared knowing that I was probably going to be the one who would drive my Focus until the engine gives out...

Don't confuse the outrageous price that a dealer INITIALLY slaps on a used car with what you could actually get. 38K is nice, but you don't have a highly collectible/desired car. It's not a Shelby Mustang. If you get offered $9K, snatch it from the person's hand and run.
