    Question Where to sell and how to evaluate?

    Hi! I am looking for suggestions please. I wish to sell a Lexus IS300 SportCross 2002 with 165000 miles which I imported to Quebec 10 years ago from Arizona and stored every winter since. I'm 75 years old - it is too much of a car for me now. When one looks up the specs on line, one learns that it was a car way ahead of its time in design and features. Even the SUV shape is current! Three questions: Given that there are so few for sale in Canada (some say it's for collectors), what is your best guess as to the price range for a private sale in Canada? Would it make any sense to try selling it in the US? Where is/are the best place(s) to post such car? Grateful for your input.

    bringatrailer.com might be a good place to take a look if it's really as rare as you imply.

    Well I can't help with value but typically comparing with other similar models is the best way to tell how much it should be listed for. Blackbook might be able to help but not sure if they have the database for cars that age. For selling though, depending on where you are, I would throw it up on Autotrader, Kijiji and Craigslist with as much description and pictures possible and go from there.

    It'd fetch more in Canada. And they are rare compared to the sedans but not amazingly so. $6-8k depending on condition

    Start at $8-$10K and the market will tell you your answer.
    Markets are great at telling you if you're priced too high. Tougher to move price up if you're suddenly getting 20 guys showing up with cash ready to go as soon as you post.

    Yep. The market is never wrong. Sellers often are.

    At $7K USD, the line is split at 50/50 for ppl to think it's a good price or too much.

    The 2JZ under the hood is probably why it's even worth that much.

    Don't forget the rest of that engine type... GE not GTE.
    Wagons are popular today with lots being imported.

    Had to search "2JZ" to know what it was? I do have an "Injen Dyno-prove intake system" if that is useful. And I agree with Mr2Mike, the shape of the car is very current. When built in the early 2000s, this model was way ahead of the demand curve - probably why only 3200 were ever built in the few years before production stopped. For those that are interested, Google has a lot of the history of the IS300 SportCross.

    Excuse the ignorance of this old man! What is the 2JZ? I do have an "injen Dyno-prove intake system" if that is useful. And I agree with Mr2Mike, the shape of the car is very current.

    The Toyota JZ engine family is a series of inline-6 automobile engines. A replacement for the M-series inline-6 engines, the JZ engines were 24-valve DOHC engines. The JZ engine was offered in 2.5- and 3.0-litre versions.
