i would say thats a pretty fair price for what you've got there. huge selling factor is that you have already done the timing belt/ water pump.

also when you did your flush and fill did you use genuine honda atf?

Clean up the seats and take a peek at the stereo! That way you can be even more firm on your price of $1200... List it at $1300 maybe?

might even want to look into swapping out the deck for a cheapo one, be it from ebay or wal-mart or flea market. could probably pick one up for $50 and it will be a direct return if not a little extra back.

i think you could get $1200 for it, just make sure to list it for $1500 so when someone "jews" you down, you go go as low as $1200 without sweating it.

Nice advice Murderotica, it would be funny if a potential buyer saw this post so he knows about the price and he is Jewish. Ouch!

Sadly in Canada I doubt you would get $500.00 for the car. People are pretty picky here. The car would have to be in really clean shape to get over 1K.

Very good advice. People [generally] don't want to buy a car just to have to put money into it--and that includes audio upgrades.

Exactly, gotta leave that extra cushion to make the buyer feel like they're bringing you down from your asking price like they're getting a bargain haha.

Hahaha yeah, just really unfortunate! =p

Really? That's insane! In that case, I know where I'll be purchasing my parts car. haha.

well since i have all my records of changing the water pump timing belt ect. id figure a radio wouldnt be that big of deal to replace, knowing how people are picky about what kinda stereo is in there car.

have you driven it since the car wouldnt go faster than 25mph? was it a fluke, is it still doing it?

also, good point on the radio, maybe you should really list it at $1500 (dont mention the stereo in the ad) and then when they start talking about price, say, "yeah, i was going to do $1500, but since the cd player JUST stopped working, ill knock $xxx off." personally i'd do $100 since you are $300 over your preferred price. they will probably also mention that it needs new tires and try to knock more off, like another $50-100, so i could see you getting $1250 easy if you play it right.

good luck with the sale.
