    I am just wondering if anyone else on beyond is having trouble selling there car? I change cars once every 6-8 months and usually have no problem selling my car in 5-12 days.

    I am currently trying to sell my car at a very fair price. Cheapest in alberta for kms/ options. its clean 2 owner with full hyatt service records. Whats the deal?? i didnt think it would last a week at the price it is at.

    Anyone else having an issue selling there GOOD CONDITION aggresivley priced car?

    For sure. Both of mine are priced under market value, with a lot of tire-kickers but no bites. It sucks because I can only go so low - and I think they are virtually rock-bottom as it is.

    The market just blows, unfortunately. You'd think we were still in a recession!

    I just gave up on selling/trading my car and decided nobody wants it.

    I sold mine after having it on the market for about a month. I had alot of tire kickers who really started to piss me off, wasting my time and all, or sticking their fingures into engine parts and then going in and around my leather seats, staining them and shit. I told one guy to stop wasting my fucking time and go home, after he opened the hood and cranked on the engine about 5 times.

    Ya I had a hard time selling my cars too but when it came down to it, it was just pricing. Lower it enough and someone will take it lol

    That's a no fail method. If you're in a rush to sell then lower your price and get gouged.

    It's been progressively harder to sell used cars, probably due to the stupidly low lease and finance rates. That's why I'm a lot more careful before buying a car. I try to buy cars that will last me a lot longer.

    It's no different on the bike side. I tried selling one of my bikes this spring for what I feel was a very good price and I got all of one phone call. So I'm keeping it. I'll probably try again next year.

    The boom is over. Most people prefer food over new rides.

    The last two used cars I purchased were both from Edmonton. At the time it just seemed like there was dick-all for deals in Calgary. Last year I was really interested in getting a Clownshoe (z3 M coupe) but there was basically nothing for sale short of Toronto/Seattle.

    Mind you, when I show up with a flat-deck trailer and cash in hand, most are willing to negotiate.

    You could maybe get the asking price for your cars if it was 1999. I suggest returning them to stock or as close as possible and relisting them for a price that would actually make someone think twice. Odd colors and mods detract from the sale.

    It's all about price!

    Ya I also noticed stock is best. People don't give a shit about mods, even if it's nice clean mods.

    I had a bitch of a time selling my g35 coupe.

    Excellent shape, all records. Low KMs. One of the lowest priced coupes on autotrader.

    And still I got (almost) scammed twice (one person left a $500 deposit cheque, then kept telling me he'd have the money "tomorrow", then all of a sudden blocked my phone and everything .... the other got a money order from a bank but absolutely refused to meet me at a bank to either deposit it, or watch them make it out to him in person), and delt with "willing to trade for 05 maxima?" "Willing to trade for 350z with 150,000?" "Willing to pay 13k?" One person got all excited about some lint from a microfiber cloth on the dash pillar. Jeesus.

    BLAH!

    Eventually I got a quality buyer (from Beyond, yaaaay ) but before that it was like pulling teeth.
