Sold!

Today my car finally sold. I put it on Kijiji back in February. The initial response was slow, but by March I had had a few interested parties ask about it. It wasn’t until late March that I actually had someone come and look at it. He was impressed with it, but ended up going with another car. However, he told his friend who ended up buying it. He was hot to buy something by the weekend, so we met halfway at Southcentre Mall today. We had a quick drive around and a few questions. He wanted a dealer inspection done and offered to pay $5000-5500 which was lower than what I was hoping for ($6500). After a few texts and calls and a talk with Knibbe (in lieu of an inspection) he offered a firm $5500 cash, which I eventually took. He and his friend came and got it after 4. We filled out and signed the Bills of Sale and away they went. Not soon after I was down at Plates deregistering my car and returning the plate as well as depositing the $$. I have to wait until Monday to cancel the insurance.
I loved my car and I was sorry to see it go, but it was starting to become randomly unreliable plus we don’t really need 2 cars. I would’ve liked more money for it, but I got market value (and it was more than a trade-in). In the future we’ll probably need a second car once the kids learn to drive. Maybe by then there will be more electric options (and rebates) available.

  1. I’m sorry to see the Golf go, too. It was a neat roller-skate of a car. We do get attached to our toys. I still miss my Burgman scooter, which we sold under very similar conditions back in 2008. https://biickert.ca/wordpress/?p=3051

    We will see how the one-car lifestyle fits. Certainly better than it would have been back in Sooke!
