As many of you have read in other recent posts of mine the forward band in the trans broke on my Grand Prix, so I have since bought another car to replace it.
Anyway, I need to make a decision on how to move on from the car. Do I replace the trans and sell it as a running and driving car? Do I just try to sell it as is?
The biggest factor is, will I gain any money from fixing the car, or will is just end up even?
Is it reasonable to think I can get $2000 out of it the way it sits? Running and "drivable." What's it worth if I buy a trans and fix it?
Key details car is a 07 Grand Prix GT (read same as a GTP for those who still don't know the nomenclature changed) has 194,000 miles. It still ran great and looks like a car with 100k miles. It has Inferno hood and GXP/SPO spoiler. Leather interior, power drivers seat, dual heated seats, 5 button DIC, no sunroof, standard (non-Monsoon) single disc CD player with steering wheel controls, dual climate control, no On-Star.
Oil has been changed every 5,000 miles. I installed a trans cooler a few years back. New rack, struts, tie rod ends, sway bar links, etc all installed about 2 years ago. I have a stack of receipts for many regular maintenance items as well.
Any advice is appreciated.
