I have no clue when it comes to cars. Im 27 I asked my dad about going with me to look at cars he said he would but...its been 2 months and aint heard from him. Thanks.

  • That has very low miles. I highly doubt they'd go lower than 13,000

  • Start by offering $10,000. you never know what the situation is,, on line you can see what the prices should be about $13,5000,, but cold hard cash is something desirable in this economy,, be sure to get the title first!

  • Look up values online on Kelley Blue Book. That will give you an idea if the asking price is fair. It's good to have someone experienced, like your dad to go w/ you too. If he can't do you have a male friend or family member to go w/ you? Dont forget the CarFax! GL!

  • That sounds like a good price for a car with few miles. How much are you willing to put into a used car? Definitely make sure it has not been wrecked previously. Make sure the transmission and motor are in their best working order. Usually people price cars higher than what they expect to get out of them. Offer $11, 500 and go from there.
