I'm thinking of selling my 2006 Maxima SE with 6 speed manual. I know sites like KBB and edmunds say they car is worth about $11K private party but since it's a manual transmission, I know there is a much more limited buying target. Realistically, how much should the car be listed for?
2006 Maxima SE with 6 speed manual
88K miles, mostly highway, I have all service records.
Heated seats, heated steering wheel, power folding mirrors
Car is in clean condition, rock chips on front bumper and hood but no major body damage.
I don't HAVE to sell the car, I just bought a minivan and I now have 4 cars including the Maxima so I want to get rid of one. What do you think?
I LOVE my maxima. BUT...we got the minivan because we just had a baby and we take a lot of road trips from Boston to NYC where our family is. Also, when family comes to visit, it's nice to be able to take one car when we go places.
The other cars are Subaru Outback XT (wifes car - she needs the AWD and she likes to drive automatic). My "fun" car is a Z4 3.0Si which is also a 6 speed. While not as practical as the Maxima, it's a lot more fun.
I will put the Maxima up for sale for $11-12K and see if I am able to sell it. If not, no big deal, I'll keep it but it's just tough maintaining 4 cars.
Your car sounds like mine expect mine is a 2004. No offience to anyone here but I can't wait to sell mine. I will never buy another Nissan ever and my love for Infiniti has been screwed up by owning this car.
Don't sell it if your comparing yours to other private sellers. How much to do you think it's worth is what matters. You have any mods or what nots on it. I would say around 15k is a fair price for your ride.
My car is stock, no mods. All highway miles. It's my commuter car so I just wanted something comfortable and good on gas. The car has been very reliable for me so far, which is why I hate to get rid of it but having 4 cars in the driveway and maintaining and insuring 4 cars will be a pain.
Minivans are superior to SUV's for carrying people. I don't need AWD, if I did, I would have gotten an AWD minivan. I don't care about image when commuting. That's what my Z4 on "fun days" is for.
I'm going to put the car up for sale based on edmunds.com and see what happens. Like I said, I will not give the car away at a lowball price. I know that enthusiasts prefer manual but marketing to enthusiasts doesn't sell cars. Only a handful of enthusiasts will buy a car in a given year. Because my car has high mileage, I think many enthusiasts will shy away from it. I have all service records too.
