I am contemplating whether to keep it and buy a new one or sell it, if I got everything fixed what would be your ideal price for the car?
It's really a great looking car. Personally, I'd keep it and run her till she dies! Or if you're like me, you'll keep throwing money at your old beast. I love mine so much. Has the car been with you for a long while?

If I got a 2nd car I'd be looking more around the 3K range, and not something that needs too much work.

I'll give you $500 and a busted up 99 Rav4 for it...


In all seriousness, it's a sweet ride I'd love to have. I'm at 322k on the 96 GLT, at 218k on the 96 Turbo and plan to get them to 500k. If you think it's worth me picking it up and want me to convince SHMBO, send me a dm and take the Rav4.

These cars seem really expensive in the US now. Up here with the issues listed I wouldn't pay more than $1000 CDN for a car needing that work and that mileage. Sure it is a T5.

I have bought 2 lower mileage SE model P80's (97 850 sedan and 2000 V70) and both took $2500-3000 CDN to bring up to good running condition. Both now have good homes but neither sold for more than $3000 CDN, were in excellent condition and needed zero maintenance repairs. The 850 had only 100k miles on it and the V70 165k miles.

I like these cars (sometimes) but they are expensive to do big repairs on if you don't have the skills or access to tools and equipment to do the repairs. A trans swap for an auto is about 10 hours labor for an experienced mechanic. Doing a manual swap is more.

I guess our markets are different.

If you love the car then keep it and do the repairs. Doing the repairs to sell it you may not make the money back.

When I sold my cleaner '97 850 T5 with far lower mileage and current dealer service records, I only got $4K USD for it. It needed nothing and was fully loaded with every option. I really regret having sold it at this point.

I agree with Ovlov, these cars, if you get them in the shape you want and do any thing to make it a cream-puff or enhance it, well, at that point you are in for a penny in for a pound, because selling it well never recoup anything close to the money you have put into them, or really replace the value of them as economic daily driver. The car is well worth dropping the transmission into either for yourself or for a buyer in this price range. It will run another 250k miles after that if properly cared for.
