I could easily see a dealer at 3K if they are dealing with real wholesale, not an overallowance. Miles, stick, cheaper car. Maybe if it glowed after recon a dealer might put it on the lot at $6,995? so they won't want to be in much more than 3-3.5.
Agreed though that it should go quick if it is in really nice shape, with records, for an easy $4,500-5K on CL.

Not really. Problem is, if selling private party, it is a barrier that creates a smaller market. But, speaking strictly of value, it doesn't make a difference.
Here is a sample to consider.
12/28/12 DFW Regular $6,800 90,503 Avg GREY 4H A
12/13/12 ATLANTA Regular $7,000 97,196 Avg BLUE 4H A
12/06/12 TX HOBBY Regular $6,850 100,118 Avg BLUE 4H A
12/28/12 DALLAS Regular $7,700 103,934 Avg WHITE 4H A

I have just about no data to go on, but about 3 months ago, one with 95k sold for 5700. So figure, at best, that's $5k trade-in. Given the time that has passed and the extra miles on yours, you'd probably get a $4k offer and maybe possibly push it to 4500. Looks like NYcarguy wins the raffle.

Thank you all very much. I think I'll hold onto it and try to sell it myself.

Happy & healthy new year to you my friend! I need your expertise & assistance once again. My book keeper recently had an accident with her 2006 Toyota Highlander. There is $7900 worth of damage & GEICO wants to fix the car! Let me give you the specs & see what you can come up with as far as a value goes (in average condition):
2006 Toyota Highlander
3 rows of seats
I only found 1 for sale on autotrader (excellent condition naturally) within 100 miles of here with 121K listed for almost $11 grand. I gotta believe they paid what $8K at auction (or on a trade)?
Thanks as always!

I can't help you with what it is worth but Insurance companies payout retail when they total a car. So if the car is worth more than 7800 retail (including any sales tax ) they will want to fix it rather than total it

that is one of my fears now that we have a new, relatively expensive car (an RDX). We could have one heck of an accident, and it would still make financial sense to fix it.

Would appreciate a current wholesale value of the following:
2010 Saab 9-5 Aero, 20K miles, with NAV
19 inch wheels
Don't know how many of these have went over auction since only a few hundred of the 2010s were built for the USA.
