BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR ISSUE, CAR DIED ON ROAD. TRADE-IN OR RE-SELL VALUE?

2000 Toyota Camry • 130,000 miles

2000 Camry XLE with luxury package (leather seats, moon roof, powered windows and seats, all in good condition, etc), which every time I take into the shop they say is in great condition except for XYZ issue. There is a hole in the muffler that requires the replacement of the entire exhaust pipe ($1,300), dead battery and probably alternator. It has new tires with less than 3000 miles on them.

It died on the road the other day and requires now to be towed to move. What is the value of this car, if I want to trade-in or re-sell it? Thanks!

You'll get more for it if you replace the battery and fix the alternator if it's bad as it can just be the battery that is causing the problem, otherwise people will just take advantage of it. You can look in kelly blue book for car price for specifics.
