Question for those who recently sold their RRS & upgraded..

Hey guys, this is directed to all of you who recently sold your rovers to upgrade (seems to be a good amount of people who done so and upgraded to the 10' model recently). I am going to be selling my RRSS in the near future, and I was wondering what outlets you guys used to sell your rover? Craigslist? Autotrader? If you used multiple, which one was the most effective? If you don't mind, can you state how much you sold the car for, and how many miles were on it?

Thanks in advance!


BTW- mods, if I posted this in the wrong sub-forum, I apologize. Please move it at your discretion. I am hoping to get replies from sport owners, hence me posting it here :)

Re: Question for those who recently sold their RRS & upgraded..

CL is probably your best bet as it's free and gets a lot of hits - I've sold several cars from CL. Some in a matter of hours!

I sold my 2008 RRS off swapalease.com - you can post a vehicle to have a lease assumed or you can post a For Sale ad. The fee is about $65 - $100 depending on what "package" you get. I live in NorCal and within 24hrs I had 25 inquiries on my RRS - ALL from the L.A. area. I had a bout 10 more from up north.

My only advice is this;

Given the current "state" of the economy you may be hard-pressed to find people who QUALIFY for a loan and/or have the cash. The first THIRTEEN (yes, 13) people were all declined loans and/or financing due to bad credit scores or high debt-to-income ratios. So be prepared to encounter a lot of people who are shopping beyond their means. Had it not been for the first 13 "losers" the car would have been gone in 36hrs but I had to keep moving on to the next person until "lucky 14" pulled through!

2 suggestions:

1. Craigslist always generates more hits than autotrader for me.
2. I would try my best to trade it in and get the best possible trade in value. You pay taxes on the difference between trade and purchase price, so it may eventually net you similiar results.

You may lose a couple $k over trading it in.., but at least its said and done with. You would be surprised at what some dealers will pay over others.

Sold mine on eBay. Sold every car/bike I have had on ebay. Sold the 2008 RRS S/C white on white with 22" Black Stormers for $51,000. Had 22000 miles on it, flawless inside and out. Hope this helps.

Re: Question for those who recently sold their RRS & upgraded..

Thank you guys for the replies. Did you guys base your price off of KBB private sale value (in "excellent" condition)?
My rover barely has 16k miles, I really wonder what I can get. I have like 15k in mods as well...

ca-sport, thanks for the info on swapalease, I had no idea you could just list your car for sale there.
slykmr, how long ago did you sell it?

If I recall think i got a shade under the KBB value just given the market. But I figured with the new bodystyle out my value wasnt increasing and I was in the mood to sell. Sold it about 1.5 months ago.
