Hello All.

Newbie here and unfortunately my first post is asking how to sell the car :(
This NOT a knock against the car! This is purely due to personal/situational circumstances.

I'm looking to sell my 2013 SRX Performance AWD with ~10K. Since the car is so new, a lot of the pricing tools (Nada/Edmonds) don't even have it yet; only KBB is up with 2013. Also, I've never had to sell such an expensive "used" car and was wonder what your experiences are. How do I price it and where do you sell it??

I’d be happy to sell it at trade-in but the only dealer around here (where I bought the car) is nickel and diming me and offering something ridiculous! They even said there is not enough used market to compare… :annoyed: I am not your average/ignorant car owner and usually very active in forums for my other vehicles but selling an almost new car is new to me.

Thanks.

Try Carmax, they will give you a price that is good for 3 days I think.

You did not mention what options you have on your SRX, where you live, or the color, all of which will have an effect on what you will get. However, you will lose all the depreciation out the door, which is in the $5K range; then the mileage factor and general condition. My best guess is that you're looking at a $10K hit from what you paid. You can never win the trade in game. Sorry, but I speak from experience of trading in 43 vehicles to date.

Thanks for the heads up. I am familiar with these scams.

Mine is a 2013 Performance Collection with AWD. Color is Black Ice Metallic (Really sharp in person!) and the interior is Light Titanium w/Ebony accents, Leather seating surfaces. The following options are additional to the base MSRP.

+Black Ice Metallic
+Wheels, 20" chrome bright finish
+Tire, compact spare
+Driver Awareness Package
+Molded splash guards (Dealer-installed)
+Professional 3M clear bra (bumpers/fenders/side view mirrors/hood) + tint


I tried listing this locally on Craigslist for below trade-in value hoping for a quick sale to avoid scammers b/c I wanted a local buyer. Learned a new lesson! I was contacted by a very interested party with a RIDICILIOUS low ball offer (I have checked Carmax/Carsense/Dealer). We exchanged emails and concluded that he (or she) would offer a bit more over whatever Carmax/Carsense/Dealer would offer. Then I notice my listing seem to not exist on Craigslist anymore. I only noticed this b/c I was wondering why I had NO interest. I try posting again and again, and noticed a pattern that it gets flagged for deletion! I Google and discover that the lowlife used car dealers use spam bots to flag listings that are too competitive to what they have to sell! These low-lifes actually do this to eliminate competition and in my case, I firmly believe the scum who emailed me is trying to force my hand by not allowing others to see my listing. I sure as hell will not sell to these lowlife.


I will be listing on Ebay and auto trader, again below value (taking over 10K lost :( ) hoping for a quick sale. I think this is the best way to reach a wider audience.

Last car I sold, which was a real pain....trading in next time, took me a month and a half.

I had it on Cars.com (cost 50 dollars) and kept listing it every week on Craig's List.

Craig's List is what finally did it. The Cars.com add just got me a bunch of calls from brokers trying to low ball me for their clients.

When people would email me from Craig's List wanting a Carfax report, I would just send them the link to the Cars.com add. 50 bucks gets you a free Carfax report.

Anyway I was amazed that it was Craig's List where most of the inquiries came from, because I'm always looking at Cars.com.

It wasn't a cheap car I was selling either.

Good luck BTW.
