That hatch should get covered with no issues.

From experience, they won't cover that hatch...they'll blame it on a leaky washer pump. Tried 2 different dealers to get this covered

Way too much... even if it was stock.... Almost 10k? And it's not a wagon? I'd day $6500-$7500 at the most.

:EDIT: Missed the rebuilt title, you won't get close to what I thought..

Think of the risk a buyer is assuming. You may know and be fully confident in the quality of that car, but a 'rebuilt' title makes a buyer extremely wary since they have no reason to be as certain about the vehicle as you are. You need to lower your price to entice somebody to overlook that risk.

I was in the same position last year when I was buying. There was a sweet looking BEW 5sp wagon at a good price, but it was rebuilt and I just didn't want to deal with the risk. A more savvy buyer might have done more due diligence and decided it was a good car, but again the price had to be low enough to make it worth somebody's time/effort to go through all that.

Rebuild title = much lower price.

IMHO

Don't forget the low mileage. Lots of high mileage cars available at the $3-4k mark. Even though it doesn't have a lot of options, a clean low mileage car is still worth at least $5k IMHO. Put in on Kijiji and ask $5900 and see what type of a response you get.

Oh, and make sure to tell the buyer to do the timing belt ASAP. An 11 year old belt, regardless of mileage, is a ticking time bomb.

I never actually checked the ownership, its my dads car. I imagine it does since it was salvaged & yes i am selling the car with T belt and all the other components that need to be changed soon. Hopefully i will get 3-5k for it!

Thanks for the help guys!

Check the top of the ownership and report back. Most people walk away from a branded car. If you have pictures to show what the damage was, that would help during the sale. Also, did the car had to go through structural inspection before the safety?

Not that I know of. The cars front bumper was smashed aand no air bags went off during the accident. I don't know much about insurance and stuff but I was confused why it was salvaged. Before my dad bought the car we took it to 2 body shops to get a full inspection of the structure and both confirmed it was perfectly fine and estimated around $800-1500 to replace bumper & paint. I have seen similar cars at LKQ that were missing front bumpers with no air bags going off with salvage titles. But id truly rather keep my tdi and let it sit in my garage forever then sell it for 2-3k. In 20 years it would be one of the only few with low kms ahaha

It will say Brand - rebuilt on the ownership if its been tagged. Ill tell you this, its definitely worth checking. If it does not have that you don't have to advertise it as rebuilt, you can simply disclose it had a small fender bender. Spend the $20 on the uvip and see what it says as well. If the ownership is not tagged, Id say you could probably get upwards of $7500..to the right buyer.

We bought a civic from Dominion too. Had a slight side swipe and ended up beeing written off but it didn't have a sapvage title and didn't need a structural inspection. However, all factory warranty was void. As I said before, check the owhership and did it need a structural inspection by MTO before it was allowed to be safetied? If you think a branded car stored for 20 years with lowish Kms will woth a lot, I would say, you should have stayed in school longer.
