Will your estimated Market Value reflect my $1700 in voluntary maintenance upgrades?

Asked by Guru51ZKL Jan 22, 2018 at 05:10 PM about the 2003 Lexus RX 300 AWD

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

A used car needing scheduled high maintenance shows up at the same price as one that has been fully maintained with voluntary maintenance that was installed to ensure greater reliability on trips. How can a listing be fairly valued when such high maintenance expenses have been included in the quoted price? Most people will see that the price is higher than other cars compared and won't bother to scroll down to read the explanation.

1 Answer


Use it as a selling point but you won't get the $1,700 back, it will help sell the car to discerning buyers.
