If your 2000 Audi S4 is practical for your needs, and not a financial burden,
then I recommend keeping the Audi S4. It is a fast, quiet, and clean car with
modern features and wonderful reviews from its drivers. However, if the Audi
has lost your interest, I will recommend a few methods to help you sell your
Let's estimate a price for your used vehicle. There are some valuable resources
to obtain a quote for your Audi S4. Some on-line sites require specific
information about your car and location before showing a price, so I located a
ballpark figure for you without getting to personal. Edmunds.com is a trusted
source that lists a true market value for cars based on estimates of current
average selling prices. According to their study, the dealer retail price is
$29,557; you will get $25,081 from a Dealer Trade In; or $27,409 for a private
According to the Audi of America website, your warranty is "transferable to
subsequent private owners for a nominal fee of $150 per transfer."
You get more for your car selling it yourself, than trading it to a car
dealer. If it's < 4 years old, dealers give you at least $2000 less than
market value for it, so they can dump it on the wholesale market. Banks won't
finance cars > 4 years old, they're worthless to dealers.
If your car is over 4 years old, dealers give you only 25% of fair market
If a dealer offers market value for your trade-in, they are making up for it on
the back side of the deal in the form of full retail price, or wasted dealer
extras. Anyone who thinks a dealer is really giving them market value for
their trade in is living a pipe dream "

If you find an appropriate price and decide the car does not suit your needs,
sell your car in a private party sale. Organizing the vehicle paperwork,
cleaning the interior and exterior, and performing a maintenance check is a
great place to start this process. Once the car looks marvelous, and you still
want to sell it, consider buying a 'For Sale' sign for your car. This is a low
cost method to the car sale market and will interest prospective buyers that
drive the same roads you do. If that method does not provide you with any
takers, you may choose to place a newspaper ad to sell your car. However, this
option would limit your prospective buyers to newspaper readers. To attract the
largest market for your car sale, use one of the many on-line forums.
Autoweb.com is one of the many wonderful on-line resources. You can place a
classified ad for under $30 that will be available for prospective buyers on
four sites: Autobytel.com, Autoweb.com, Autosite.com and CarSmart.com.
Whether you decide to keep or sell your car, be sure you do it with confidence.
Don't let a prospective buyer talk you out of your desired price. This is your
car to sell, and you should do it with pride!
