2008 Astra XR
Default Selling the Astra

Hey guys, I am looking to upgrade now so its time to sell the astra. How is the market for a used astra? I feel like if I put it on craigslist than I probably wont get too many bites unless I try to sell it for 5k and get rid of it. Dealer offered 4k. Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Seems pretty low, but the used car market had been over inflated by the lack of cars purchased when ours was. 2010 was when things picked back up and with all those coming off lease it seems the used market is going down some, and it our case down pretty hard.... I have been thinking about getting something else, but if its worth that little, its not worth it.

Default Re: Selling the Astra

Was just shopping for a used car in August and thought that pickings below $8k were slim. Bought an Astra base 5-door with 40,000 miles for $7k and felt that I got a great deal. Competing cars in my price range were Nissan Versa and Chevy Aveo, i.e., not very inspiring.

I suggest valuing at KBB/Edmund's private party price and listing on Craigslist and Autotrader. Ought to move pretty well.

...
Also have a 2008 Astra XE

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
