Should I trade-in or private sell my car? I have a 2004 Suzuki Verona that I want to get rid of for a more reliable car. It has two dented doors on the passenger side, but the damages are purely cosmetic, the doors work fine, lock fine, no problems with the windows etc. It also has some engine issues, and right now, I can't afford to fix any of those things, so I'd have to sell or trade it in -as is-. I was hoping to get at least two thousand for it, as otherwise the car is in excellent shape at only 71000 miles. With these issues, which is my better bet?
