Do You Think It's Possible

To sell my truck for $12,500? It's a 2006 Sport 2WD supercab with 23,500 miles and in excellent condition. It also just got brand new tires and factory alloy wheels and has a fiberglass tonneau and is also under factory warranty until April 2009.

I currently owe $14500 on it and realize I won't get close to that which is why I would be willing to sell it for $2000 under what I owe.

I have to sell it because I am moving to Colorado with my wife for the first time living on my own and will need to drop my truck payment in order to pay for an apartment.

Do you think that would be a reasonable price to sell at, even with the economy being how it is right now?

Nope, unless you find someone wanting to waste money on a used Ranger

I would say yes. A stealership if they bought that from you would sell it for probably 13,000. Not saying anyone would buy it for that but I don't think thats outrageous.

Shoot a stealership by me had a 2000 ranger xlt with like 33,000 and they wanted what you want for yours. YA RIGHT!!!!!!

that's the dealer now when you went to the dealer and talked about it and they were like well for you and you only we can drop 5000 dollars off the list price! if you buy it right now. and the average person most likely below average might just say WHOA a deal a used car from the dealer for 5000 off!

and np =]

Just an update. I took my truck in to Carmax for an appraisal and they said my it is rare to see a vehicle in such good condition as mine and that it would help with my offer. They offered me $9500 for my truck. I made the mistake of not telling them I may want to finance one of there vehicles which might have gotten me a better offer. Damn economy!

I say no, I had a Loaded level II that I started selling for what everyone here said was a good price and I had to drop it to 11,000 before it sold. This was a low mileage two year old truck with a $1600 and I had a tough time getting 11K for it. If I had a year or two to sell it somebody would buy it for more, but I had three months to get rid of it.

yea, i'd vote no. it's only 2wd, no power options and a 3.0L. a person could find a much more loaded truck for that kind of money. i'm not saying that you beat on it or didn't take care of it. but there are "better" trucks out there for that price. as for carmax and drivers world, they are gonna give you the least amount for it so they can sell it for the most. that's the way it is and that's the way it will always be.

good luck. there is no way you can bring it with you?

another option is trying one of those leasing sites. the ones that you can list your lease because you wanna get out of it. i'm guessing you own your truck. see what your dealer can do for you. maybe take the truck back for something cheaper.

Just try it.... it costs nothing to post your ad on various classifieds (craigslist being a great example).

Maybe yours was better than the one I delt with in CA.. they were way over priced. Ohhh and they told my dad they would give him one amount. then got it there and tried to cut it in half for no reason.

Ya, I've lowered my expectations to around 10.5 or 11. It is full power besides the seats. I have to sell it because I already have a 95 Jetta I got for free that drives perfectly and I can't make a car payment plus rent while going to school full time.

I don't think that truck is worth much more than $10k

I just payed under 10k at a dealer for my '04 FX4 with 68k miles.

BUT try craigslist and see if you get any bites. Surely couldn't hurt.

why not take it to a dealer and trade it in on something and not have a car payment anymore just a thought

like a 98 ranger 4wd since your moving to a snowy state just my idea atleast your payment will be a ton lower than what it is now.
