New to forum,

Hopefully this question is not off-topic for the forum; it seems the correct community of folks to ask.

We love our 2002 Highlander, but the current commute demands that we part ways. 6 cylinder, Limited, 2WD, 118300 miles. White paint with beige leather seats, leather trim. Minimal wear on the leather, overall great shape for a 10 year old car. Garaged, dealer-serviced, synthetic oil, etc. We have already procured our replacement vehicle, and now need to find a new home for the Highlander. Ideally, we'd sell it to a dealer to avoid the headache of multiple listings and busted deals.

Is $7000 cringe-worthy, or a decent offer from a dealer like Carmax? I have seen Edmunds and Kelley, and realize their "trade-in" estimates may not reflect reality; I have also surfed a bit around ebay, autotrader, etc, and have been amazed at what dealers will ask for similar specs. I do not have access to Manheim, although if someone here does, having a few recent auctions to compare to would be appreciated.

If this is not the appropriate forum, can someone refer me to the right place to post?

Thanks,

-J

Here in SE Michigan, that model would probably run between $9-$10k. TO give you a far out figure, I just bought an 03 with 113k on it, base trim, 4wd, for $7500, although it was listed for $7900 and that was the lowest I have seen ANY highlander going for within reasonable distance to me.

Wow, that's great. I guess next time I should go shop outside of my area. No way you can get anything like that for $7500.

Get on autotrader.com and search all the 2001-2003 HLs with similar miles within 200 miles of your location. That will give you low and high range of cars being offered for sale - that is the competition in your market so price yours accordingly. Good cars in great shape at a lower than average price sell very fast to cash buyers - lots of people are out looking for good used vehicles and the HLs have very strong demand because they are so reliable.
