    Default Is it hard to sell a 1st gen?

    I know this question is hard to answer... but I'd like to see if anyone has experience selling a 1st gen. There are tons on autotrader/kijiji/fb, but I don't want to just give my wife's 3 away for peanuts. I'm looking for an upgrade towards the end of the year.

    Hers is a 1st gen GS sedan, manual, 205k km. It's in a good condition (just replaced front brakes, a/c compressor, o2 sensor, did some suspension work), it will have no problems passing safety.

    Any input is appreciated!

    If you have the space to store it you might get more parting out

    Being manual it will make it harder . Also like been said you won't get much for it, but would depend on rust. I just bought a new car and need to get rig of my 2005 3 sedan. Had it for sale but no bites yet and not asking much. Might be easier to scrap it than put $500 into it and try to recoup the cost in my case. I'd say drive it until it needs more work then dump it cheap.

    Good idea, I'll keep it for a while, it has no issues now (well, beside rust, but it's not too bad yet). Trade-in is also an option, but I won't get more than a few hundred for it..
