I’m going to sell my 89 Volvo on Craigslist if I can’t get any trade-in for it. It needs a complete tune-up and has a slow leak in the break fluid. I’ve had a lot of problems with it. Now, I’m totally willing to disclose any information. I don’t really care- I want it gone and was hoping I could get $500 for it.
So, is it acceptable to sell a car that has a lot of problems if I disclose them? I feel really weird about the brake fluid- basically you have to check it and add every couple of weeks. I discovered this the hard way, by suddenly not having brakes. But the Tires Plus place I took it to said they didn’t find a leak in the line, and I was fine adding fluid rather than launching a full investigation. It runs currently, but I am so sure it will break down that my husband and I are buying a brand new car (either a Hyundai Accent or a Chevy Aveo, if you’re interested).
Also, is $500 a good asking price? That’s what the lady at the auto shop I take it to suggested. Anyone know anything about trade-ins? Is it silly to expect anything for an 89 Volvo?
Thanks in advance!
