For starters I apologise for such a boring post…! Anyway I’ve got a 2000 1.8 petrol Passat estate that I am thinking of upgrading to something diesel, probably an Octavia estate if I can find one (for the record it has just has FSH and has just been serviced with 2 new tyres fitted etc… and has been well looked after with 95k on the clock).
According to Parkers the car is worth £1,200 in a private sale and £1k traded in which does seem low for a pretty decent car with electric everything etc… However a quick look on autotrader and there’s similar cars on there for £1,500+ and some over £2k from private sellers. I am assuming that they may never sell these cars for anything like what they are asking but nearly double the Parkers price seems way off.
However apart from trying my luck on the classifieds on here I’m not sure I want the hassle of trying to sell privately as have heard some horror stories of people just being plagued by scammers etc… Therefore anyone know a real world price I can expect to get for it from both a trade in or private sale?
Thanks in advance.
