As a buyer, spend the time/money and get the paint cleaned up off of that mirror. These small cosmetic defects are an eye sore in the picture and it is an easy fix. You will get more money with that gone.
I'm going to be getting another car, and selling my VX soon as well. I'm kinda thinking along the lines as stated above with waiting a little to see if fuel goes up to kinda drive the market demand up higher for it.
I believe a good running VX is worth around $2k no matter the mileage as long as it's without any major mechanical defects. 40+ mpg is hard to beat for that price and it not being a motorcycle!
On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...
If you don't NEED to sell it (sounds like you don't), I'd hold onto it a couple more months. Gas is going up (almost $3/gal where I live) and will continue to go up deeper into the summer. At some point people are gonna start to freak out again, sell their suvs and demand for our cars will spike once again.
Or you could just put a high enough price tag and sit on it until the right buyer comes along, sort of the same thing.
I've never seen a VX, even the overpriced ones, sit for months on end. Usually someone wants one bad enough and if it's clean, will pay the premium. I would.
Yeah, Id actually suggest going to craigslist.org and (pay to post site, but worth it) Autotrader.com ( I sold 2 cars because of autotrader and along with craigslist, they are the ONLY places I go besides the newspaper)
Gl selling, and if you happen to keep it till the summer, I may make a pilgrimage up to Boston to look at it (if you keep it that long)
Going GTO once I finally get a job. Stayin pontiac all the way.
