I have a 95 Honda Civic Del sol SOHC V-tech.
It has 139K miles (which is what the odometer says, but the engine was
replaced before I bought it, so there really is no telling how many miles it
It was repainted (same color) 2 years ago. The interior is fine, maybe a
little faded, but the car runs great. No major repairs have ever been
performed on it.
I am thinking of selling it. Unfortunately, a lady plowed into the driver's
side door in a bank parking lot recently. Pretty good sized dent. My
question is, do people buy cars with giant dents in the side?
Just wondering and thought you all (fellow Honda lovers) would be a good
Sure, they do. Obviously it will seriously impact the price.
Is the damage a total loss as far as insurance is concerned? It would be
worth more if it were repaired.
It doesn't have that many miles for a 95? Why do want to get rid of it?
If you are in Florida, that car without the dent could bring about $4400
to $4800. The dent might bring about $450 for repairs, if it is limited
to the door. So, you should be asking about $4350. That is with decent
tires, brakes, drive away condition...
Just sold mine, for $5200 cash, that had the automatic transmission,
108,214 miles, new rotors and pads, new Kum Ho tires, new stereo CD
player, and really spiffy seat covers, that were newish, as we have
always had seat covers to protect, and they have neat graphics. Had a
new radiator, all belts, hoses, plus I did the timing belt, tensioner,
water pump, at 96,000 miles.
Yeah, dealers still pull $5500 or so. There is still a good demand for
a sporty car with lift out top that pops into the huge trunk...Living in
Spring Break country, Central Florida.
Gads, I miss mine!
