I WANT to sell my 1998 Daihatsu Charade five-door hatch and would like to know what I should ask for it in a private sale? It will have done 103,000km when I sell it. It has an auto transmission, power steering, two new tyres and nine months' registration. I have owned it from new, had it regularly serviced and it's in excellent condition. It is almost due for its 100,000km service, but because this is costly, I do not want to do it given that I am about to sell the car. Will I be safe driving around in it for another 3000km or more?
IF IT'S been regularly serviced, the chances of having a problem in the next 3000km are pretty low, but I cannot guarantee you will not have a problem and I don't like recommending that you miss a service. I would have it done if it was my car. It will also make it much easier to sell. I would think you could ask $6000-$6500.
