Default 1994 Chevy Lumina

Ok as much as i love this car(it's my first )I'm going to be moving (in the fall anywhere from 370miles to 2200 miles ) and I'm worried that something might break on that long of a drive. So I'm considering selling it. Surprisingly I've had a few local people say they were interested. Here's everything I know about it.

1994 Chevy Lumina (222,xxx miles)
3.1 V6 (around 120K miles, dont know the exact miles it had when it was swapped in)
Automatic transmission(pretty sure it's been rebuilt at some point, don't know when)

Known problems
1. Heat doesn't work(stuck door?)
2. A/C has been finicky(not sure yet, ran very cold past two years)
3. Turn signal lever is...finicky as well (you have to hold it in place for it to actually work)
4. dent in right front quarter
5. Left front strut mount makes a popping noise when you turn the wheel all the way left
6. Interior isn't too bad, but obviously warn
7. Small spot of rust on the right rear fender and the very bottom under the passenger side door.
8. Light paint fade on trunk deck
9. Right rear is nearing it's end(was free)
10. Temp Gauge hasn't moved since i bought the car
11. Rear left window doesn't work(electric)


What's new
1. Two ball joints
2. One Half shaft
3. Battery
4. Two front tires and left rear have about 15,000 miles of life left.

I have no reason to believe anything is going to break, it runs strong and sounds good.

I paid $1300 for the car and have put 22,xxx miles on it. Only about $400 in repairs and maintenance. What do you think it's worth?

Put it for sale at $1500 and be prepared to be offered $1000. Try to meet him at $1150 and go for it.

If that^ I have the very same car. I wouldnt expect much more than $1000 cash unless you find a very special buyer. But i Agree with mike, advertise it at $1500 and expect some low balling.

Good luck with the sale!
