2004 Ford Ranger Value

How much do you think a 2004 Ford Ranger Edge SuperCab 2wd is worth (rough estimate)? It needs wheel bearings, ball joints, new tires, and has a few small door dings. I didn't catch the mileage, but will be going to look at it this afternoon. The guy wants $5,500 private party. Obviously I'll try to talk him down, but is that a good deal? I have ran several used car value guides and have formed my own opinion, but also want your opinion as well.

Offer him $5000 since you will have to put some money into it.

That's the thing, I'm not sure. I will find out this afternoon, but I'm guessing around 100,000. That would be average mileage for the year model.

I could swear I saw him with the back doors open so if I am right it is four-door.

I'll do all the work myself. What do you think it is worth assuming I am right? He paid off a loan for someone who was going to lose it so he bought it for $3200. I understand he wants to make a profit, but I want to get it for a price I can as well if I don't decide to keep it.

id say you should pay around 4k for it 5k max. if you buy it and do all the work on it you should make a nice profit. I bought that green 98 for $900 and sold it for 2900 after i put work into it. (upper and lower ball joints, brakes, inner and outer tie rods)

if you decide you don't want it you could turn a profit. btw that 98 had 198k on it lol

Like Pedro said, Milage is a big factor. Avg mileage (i'm sure you know) is 12k a year. so it should be around 84k miles for a fair market value. anything under that milage is worth more, anything over is worth less.
Also, you said it needs work? Factor in the price of parts. say about $500 for tires. another $150 for bearings, and another $150 for ball joints. Then another $100 bucks cause you might need it aligned.
Door dings are door dings. its rare you find a car without some kind of small dent in it.
I'd also say $4500, not really a penny more since its probably a 3.0

It has 109,000 (84,000 to 96,000 is average depending on when in 2004 it was built) and is a 2 door SuperCab. Is in very good condition for the age of the vehicle. Interior is very nice. He said the least he would take is $5,000. Hmm...

Seems like a good deal. I got my 2004 Edge for 6500 last year. Of course, it only had 93k, was in pristine condition mechanically and visually, and came with a really good powertrain warranty. 5000 sounds good, but you can talk him down. As long as it's a 4.0, I would jump on that.

afterbuying this 2 door truck, you may wish to upgrade the seats. While comfy, they get dirty FAST and... well leather seats out of a mountaineer are WAY better. Plus, the stock seats dont go forward very far... as where the leather ones, I could put a 36in CRT tv in the backseat now =P
