I haven't used the car for 4 years due to extensive travelling. It's a 2004 Accord V6 Sedan EX with 58k miles. Since 2011, it has been sitting in a covered, climate-controlled storage, completely unused.
I bought it brand-new in 2003, drove it regularly, and had followed the recommended oil change and maintenance schedules.
At this point, I'd like to sell the car but wonder how much I would first have to pay to get it into a drive-able and sell-able condition, given the extended non-usage?
I don't have time for a private sale, so I think that leaves the following options:
1) Have it repaired and then sell it outright to a used car dealer
2) Have it towed as-is to used car dealer and sell it
3) Donate it (if repair costs are high relative to selling price)
I ran online quotes on the car value, which are in the $4000-6000 range. However, without knowing how much it would cost to repair, I cannot make an informed decision. Can someone be so kind as to give me some feedback regarding the expected repair cost? Even a rough range would be helpful. Thank you very much!
have the same problem?
