Like you said, you wouldn't really be able to look these things up, so its all going to be based on "what would I pay for it."
'97 1.9 auto with 130k? Hell, even a similar vintage Miata would run circles around it. It would have to be real nice for $3k, IMHO. With the work it needs, I wouldn't feel too comfortable over $2500. There is a lack of demand here. Nobody but a high school girl would want it, and few fathers would buy it for them.
The TL is an easier sell. I'd think you could still get $3k for that.

Time to evaluate the fleet. Thinking that both might have to go.
2009 Lexus RX 350
black with tan guts
Pretty good condition
2007 Honda Odyssey EX
Graphite with light gray interior
Lived a hard life. Kids have trashed the inside but will spend some time cleaning it up. A few dents on the outside. At one point my wife got an estimate of 600 to fix it but not sure if we have added to the dent total since then.
In Pittsburgh, PA
Looking for a trade in number for both. Pretty good chance that they will both go to a Honda dealer.

~$18,500 and ... well... tough to really pin it down without seeing just how bad it is, but I'll throw a blind number of $8500 on it.

I agree about the BMW. at that price he is likely to have it around for a while. I did not bother to drive it, but I am sure it is quite the putt putt mobile. I would never get an AT version for myself, but I really would be better off with an AT since I would need to share with the non-stick drivers to make it work.
as to the TL, I was thinking 3K should be pretty easy. most likely the first person to see it would take it. If I tried for much more like 4K that might be a tough sell.
If we do dump it soon, might go with a CL ad $3,500 and see what happens.
probably will look to ditch my Integra soon regardless, and I know what to ask/take for that!

I sold our '92 Acura Legend for $5000, this past winter...
Only had 46K miles, though...

miles helped, yes, but the Legend also has kind of a following, whereas the TL has fallen more into that "just another car" category.

I am looking at a 2009 Range Rover Supercharged Autobiography edition with 76,000 miles in good condition and normal wear.
Can you advise on the price of this SUV?

Well this should be good...

I'm curious to see what qbrozen has to say as well on this one. $29,900 across the block, dealer asks $39,999, & takes $36K + TTLR?
