I've noticed prices in California are quite low on Craigslist.
In my area (Missouri), your car would be listing for $9-10k and I would expect it'd probably sell for $7k pretty fast. I have seen a 2012 7-8 bar for 7k just sitting in a dealer lot, so I know the 2011/2012 value isn't great. I've seen similar cars listed for lots less in CA.
Good luck selling yours. At least your battery is in much better shape than mine. I'm sure you can do far better than $5k if you sell it yourself. Keep in mind most sellers probably aren't comfortable with a remote sale, so it might be hard to do.
That's the tough part with out of state sales. It's not convenient for the other person to come look. And, they have to pay to have it shipped, besides the extra risk.
I brought my Leaf to a Nissan dealer that I sometimes go to for service to have them appraise it. The guy I first spoke to on the phone was a newb (only there for 2 months and he was busy anyway) and I was handed off to someone available. He immediately knew it was a '13 SV w/premium package. I told him it didn't have the quick charge port. I told him the mileage was at about 63.5K miles and he powered up the car.
But then the sales droid kept saying 65K miles (no, 63.5K) miles and kept calling my car a "base SV". No. I said again, it was w/premium.
He went to speak w/his manager. I told him that Carmax was willing to offer me $5K. He said I should take that. They just didn't want to buy cars w/o the CHAdeMO inlet. And, he felt my car was "high mileage". Hehe. Last time I took my Leaf to another dealer for service and the SA felt my car's mileage was low for its age. I can understand their POV though. Some people think they want or need the DC FC inlet. Judging by posts here on other Leaf FB groups, many buyers probably know nothing about battery capacity and just look at age, mileage and price.
The CL asking prices at https://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/cta ... _year=2013
are sometimes an enigma.
I looked thru eBay Motors sold listings and they were of little help. I found https://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-Nissan-Le ... _cvip=true
and wonder if it really went thru. IMHO, $6800 for an 9 bar '13 S w/charge package and 63K miles is on the high side. The seller was in So Cal.
I was planning to try another Nissan dealer today but their appraisal guy was out so but will be in on Tuesday. Will call them first to see if they'd want it and there's any possibility of at least $5K.
If no, I'll try advertising my at work first. If someone offered me $7K (seems unlikely in Nor Cal), it'd be a done deal.
