Everything except the body panel, bumper cover, and the headlight are in "2011" condition. Until someone backed into the car, it was almost like new. Body shop said it needs between $2500-3000 of work because of the headlight, bumper attachment, front quarter panel, and where it connects to the frame part is bent (so it needs work to the connector metal part to reconnect the panel back on). Everything under the hood is in perfect condition and works. Hood and door panels are in perfect alignment... only the front body panel, headlight, and bumper cover were affected.

Anyway, does anyone want it for a reasonable sale price?

2011 Silver
36000 miles
8 bars left, 73 miles range
everything works (except right headlight)
tires like new
rims- pretty much perfect
Location- Scottsdale, AZ

A 2011 in good conditions is worth about 4-6k , if it qualify for a new battery it will be worth more, now with the damage it has, probably worth 2-3k

Too old to qualify for a FREE new battery now.

I would ask $2-$3k but if there is any damage, even a little dent you won't get much more than salvage value.

A guy with a volt had a similar situation and best offer was $1500.

I'm not saying don't ask it, just reminding you to not be surprised when you get low balled in the 3 digit area and if the titles branded it will be a hard sell.

If it were me and the title is clean I would duck tape it, stick on a crappy light so it's legal and drive the thing.

Been there done that.

Good Luck

yeah, title is clean. I thought about fixing it, but i almost never even drive the car. the repair plus $1200/year in insurance doesn't really make sense since I drive my truck almost everywhere I go. the parts alone are worth more than $3000 individually, but I don't have the time or expertise to figure that out.

The range given is very misleading. My 2013 has 70 miles of usable summertime range available, and it has 12 bars showing.

The range is not misleading, that is what the car says based on how I drive. In city driving, I get just about that. Of course if you drive 80 miles an hour, the range will be much less. Nothing misleading about stating a fact that the car says it has that range available.

I never drive 80MPH, and I average about 4.2 M/KWH in warm weather. This is a little better than typical. You using the 'Guess O Meter' range estimate will not fool anyone on this site. If you actually believe what you write, then try to actually get that estimated range, including at least some 45MPH driving. Failing that, the more honest thing would be to label that range "in city driving."
