the damage is always a wild card, especially when you can't see it (and how well it was repaired).
but, being a Honda and low miles, this is perfect for a private sale. The dealer will likely hammer you for the body work, a private buyer will snap it up for a teenager or commuter car. Heck, I could use it, and I just bought something! Wrong end of Jersey though.
Will not last long on CL if it shows nice.

A lady at work has a RAV4, which got hit in the back.
It didn't look that bad to me, my guess was 2k, but it ended up being over 5k damage.
It may just be an expensive repair, compared to the value but not really major damage to the overall vehicle.

Interesting.... I'd sure give Craigslist a try at $6495, before just taking $5K from CarMax, though..

#43410 of 43798 2010 Nissan Frontier 4Dr 4x4 LE
Jan 09, 2013 (1:20 pm)
I'm considering trading in the following vehicle on a 2013 F-150:
Location: Central VA - Charlottesville, VA
2010 Nissan Frontier Crewcab 4x4 LE 4Dr - midsize truck
4.0 ltr V-6 - 5speed auto
4x4 w/Hill Start Assist & Hill Descent control
Miles: 19.6K miles
Color: Radiant Silver w/Steel Leather (gray) interior
Major Options: Moonroof, LE Value pkg (6-CD Rockford Fosgate, leather seating, heated front seats, 8-way pwr driver & 4-way power pass seats, Class IV tow hitch receiver) - LE's come pretty much loaded
Condition: Excellent exterior & interior - no dings scrapes - interior like new except usual wear (no damage) on drivers seat.
Tires: about 60%
Brakes - no problems - w/such low miles, they work as they should.
Usual maintenance - Oil change, tire rotation, air filter changes. No problems.
No accidents or any other issues.
NADA online lookup puts this truck at about 22K for a clean trade-in. Wondering what the 'real world' is on this truck before I make a move.
As always, thanks in advance for your most valueable input on this inquiry.
Regards - M. J. McCloskey

$22k is possible, but don't be surprised if they come in at around $21k.

Thanks so much for your most timely reply. At least I'm in the ballpark and know anything less that 21K would be unacceptable.
The Frontier has been w/o fault and I'm not sure I want to pilot a F-150 that is substantially bigger than the Fronty which is more nimble by comparison.
The Best to the Best (qbrozen)!!
#43413 of 43798 KBB vs Edmunds TMV vs NADA
Jan 15, 2013 (3:10 pm)
I see an 08 Audi A4 Quattro S line with 55k miles listed for $21K from a credit union as a repo'd car.
So I look up KBB and it says $21,800 retail. Edmunds TMV says for Clean $16,669. NADA says clean retail $21,500.
I have seen the same results with other cars but they were mostly higher mileage so I was assuming that KBB was high on those and Edmunds was more accurate, but idk. $5k is a wide spread here.
What do you think?
