Fair to who? Are you looking to buy, sell, or trade it in?
If trading, the dealership probably won't give you much more than Blue Book (around $7-8K in your case). Private sale around $10K
If looking to buy, consider repairs that haven't been done but most probably are needed (or soon will be needed) on a car that's soon to be 10 years old. My wife drives nearly the identical car to the one you describe (down to the color) with just a few miles less (125K). In the past 18 months we've had to:
- Replace the head/timing chain cover gasket - Replace the water pump - Replace the belt tensioner - Replace the engine mounts - Fix some "minor" stuff (e.g. hydraulic lines, broken exhaust pipe)
On top of that, the car already had (under warranty): - The A/C evaporator replaced - The wiring harness replaced
So if the car you're talking about has had this done, then maybe it could warrant a premium above Blue Book.
