If they bought your car they would send it straight to auction.
So if I sold it it would make most sence to sell it privately. On Autotrader, with the exception of two Priuses, one of which is in Hawai, most similar ones are from $5,500 to $7,000 in price, albeit with a the front bumper intact unlike mine.

I think I'll just keep it though. I can't find a good spot to drill a hole in the Avalon for an antenna installation. And there are times when having two cars is handy. I still need to figure out my insurance, but I am still paying less than when I had one car.

I didn't imagine that I would want to hear what they offered for any of my cars, but I am a terrible example.

As I recall USAA said they had some relationship with a used car network that would get me the best price.

They offered me $1,100 for my Forester, which I sold for $2,700.

In theory selling a car to a normal dealership would be easier, but I absolutely do not want to deal with any.
