    Ok, Viper Community, I need advise!!! I am selling my 2000 Viper RT/10 Red with Black Interior with 104,800 miles ... Yup!!!! you heard right.. Not a Garage Queen. Car was my daily driver, and it was well maintained by Dan Cragin in SOCAL. I originally placed it for $32,000 but was told that's too high for a high mileage car. So I reduced it to $29,000 when I placed the AD in Autotrader. I posted in GEN V forums, about pricing on a new Viper with the $15K rebate. So I am selling my 2000 since I only have a 1 car garage. I am reaching out to Woodhouse Dodge tomorrow for my new car Viper purchase (Support the Sponsors!!!) Please give me your opinions as you what you honestly feel the car is worth. - Thanks in Advance Everyone!!!!

    Sounds like you may want to run your car through them. From my understanding they may give you a decent trade in value (for a dealer).

    All in all it's hard to say what you should be asking. The miles scare most people away (my 08 has 73K miles and is a pain to try and sell). I'd say that car and color should be around mid $20's for a quick sale. $28K if you want to sit on it for a few months.

    low 20s and do not hesitate to take reasonable offers in that range. on a trade you will get mid teens thats my feeling on this one.

    You are right on the money.
    Went to a dealership today and they were talking $19,500, but if I purchased a new Lexus LS 460Lfor $85K.
    Privately, I was offered $23,000, and I refused.

    Would I be unreasonable asking $26,000?????

    asking and getting are very different. 26 might be a fair starting point but dont expect to get it

    19 - 23K is a fair price, especially on a trade-in you receive the tax credit.

    Dude, why did you drive it so much? It belongs in the garage, collecting dust, not on the road.

    Hahahaha.... Well it was either a "Daily Driver with tons of enjoyment" or a "Garage Queen Option".... I chose the first.

    My car has been absolutely enjoyable and with problems. both Dan Cragin and I have seen way more problems with the "Garage Queen" vehicles.

    Honestly, $23k sounds like a fair offer to me. As mentioned earlier in the thread, high miles weed out a lot of potential Viper buyers. Good luck with the sale!

    I think seeing a car in person can fend off a lot of high mileage concerns. I just ticked over 73k on my 04 and really it barely looks any different than the day I bought it with 43k on the clock. Mechanically these things are so overbuilt that I'm not sure they'd wear out in one person's lifetime.

    When I sold my Viper 2 years ago I posted a video using Flash of my usual daily drive. With so many video devices you could always post a video like that. I think it helps if the video is raw. There's no music in the background. The drive is through traffic with no breaks in the video and has unrehearsed stops, starts, and turns. If the instruments can be visible as well. In my video, traffic for some reason was going really slowly only giving my car a sense of speed.

    I think if you can get $22K you are doing quite well. I wouldn't expect too much more. May not be worth it to hold out for another grand, or possibly less if you don't jump on it. Good luck in whatever you decide.

    Doing the math here on the price drop due to mileage, would it not be worth buying a low mileage salvage engine then selling it on?

    Say you got a low mileage engine off the Bay currently there's one advertised with a ball park figure of under 7K, put that in and surley the mileage issue would then be discounted?

    If the car has good history surely that's worth paying for whatever the mileage?

    Depends on buyer. I don't think you could ever recoup the expense of buying a lower mileage motor for resale value. The chasis still has the miles on it. There is a buyer out there for the car as is. I love seeing that some people choose to enjoy the car everyday versus the garage queen route. I wonder what other car from MY2000 could be purchased and driven over 100K miles in 14 years and still retain approximately 30% of its original value.

    Don't listen to people telling you to trade it in to save on tax credits! Trading in at $19,500 saves you ~$187 in taxes, but you lose out on an extra $2,500 from selling it outright at $22,000.
