It is broke down. I haven't drove it since October. Either timing belt or alternator. We aren't sure though.

This old guy saw me at the store a couple of weeks ago and asked me about it because he hasn't saw me drive it in a while. I told him it wasn't running. He asked to buy it at that time but at that time we wasn't sure what we would do with it.

Since then dh and I have decided to sell it so I told dh if I see him again I'll give him dh number. I saw him today and gave him dh number. I asked him how much he'd be willing to pay and he asked me how much we wanted. So I don't know what to ask for it. It is older vehicle and currently isn't running and we don't have the money to take it somewhere to have it looked at.

We almost have dh truck paid off so then we can add another car payment.whatever we get for it will be put back for towards a down payment on me another car.

Check the blue book price, then subtract the estimated cost of repairs.

Go on Kelly blue book and be sure to put in poor condition. They will give you the value. If you sell it write up a contract and write 'sold as is' so he can't sue you for a lemon in case he changes his mind.

Look up the blue book on it. But keep in mind its poor condition, since it's a non runner.
