I don't think it will go up. I believe what has always hurt these is the existence of the Pilot. When I can get a brand new Pilot Touring for $37k, it makes the used MDX a much tougher sell.

Could be. But the resale on the MDX was quite strong until they started discounting the heck out of them last year. There's also a bigger difference between Pilot and MDX than I thought. On paper, we were quite interested in Pilot. Back-to-back test drives with an MDX and that Pilot needs to be a LOT cheaper to close the deal. At the time we bought there was only about $2k difference between new Pilot Touring and MDX Tech. Now the 2014 MDX is about $10k more than the Pilot.

sorry about missing this before (and the others I'm about to post).
In MI, it would be right around low-to-mid $12k at auction. Probably low 12 given the history. So their asking price is quite fair. I'd only be looking for another $500 off.

tough one as I can't really pin down comparables. Should be in that $30k zip code.

I really really thought I responded to this. Well, could be the car is sold already, but I think the others have already said it. Its worth what someone is willing to pay. I think $3500 asking wouldn't kill anyone. If he's real patient and bold, maybe even $3995.

Not a problem and thanks for the reply.
Not exactly a high demand car.

Qbrozen continues to get the weird ones! I mean, really, a 36 year old jeep with the floor boards rusted out and the transmission busted?
Being a jeep, it will be worth more than one might think. But I really, really doubt there have been very many similar vehicles going through the auctions lately.
And by the way, it really does matter what part of this wide world you are in. Jeeps are much more popular in some areas than in others.

This is a far more suitable discussion for your question.
There is no way to verify the miles. You almost have to assume it has turned over AT LEAST once.
When you repost there, much more information would be helpful. What is the condition of the rest of the vehicle? All 4 fenders rust free and no diamond plating covering them? How is the spare tire carrier? Any rust there? What about the rollbar joints at the floor? How about the frame? How has the vehicle been bastardized since inception (nearly impossible to find a jeep that is all original).

thanks all (qbrozen-stickguy-sebring95-steine13) for your posts when we looked for old crv and high prices back in may.
after that husband switched to 4wd subaru and they are also high and also he says bad gaskets-thats another story. sometimes they go cheap with gaskets but we've missed so far
anyway we searched months at cl and ebay and then came across this one now here
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2001-SUBARU-LEGACY-OUTBACK-AWD-5-SPEED-MANUAL-/40- - - - - - - 0529679037?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item5d416de2bd
found some 20 manheim pics online (can someone tel me how to load pics here. please?)
it's the same car now ebaying. dealer didn't clean winshield and rear window showing manheims wax marks and body rulers and stuff showing starcrack and wiperglass gouge!!!!!!!!! some wheel stuff and body rust n dents and stuff and now seller says engines bad but its cheap
husband thinks he can do headgaskets to fix engine problem and then do cheap windshield
vin4S3BH686516601755 probly at pa manheim since dealers in pa
mainheim speedometer pic is 80 miles less than ebays pic so hubby says dealer probly blew the gasket going back home. also might need tires
can you tell us what the auction $$$`was? dont want to overpay.
