Help pricing my truck.. 2003 Silverado ECSB LT Z71


Recommended Posts

I checked out KBB, NADA & Edmunds but the prices are all over the places From $16,500 to $24,000!

 

What do you think is a realistic price to ask?

 

2003 Silverado ECSB LT Z71 loaded w/39K miles. I have owned since 10K miles

 

New brakes all round (GM Rotors & ceramic pads), all new tires (Michelin LTX M/S 2K miles ago $800!)

Access brand bedcover, GM bed liner, GM rain guards & hood deflector (not shown- removed to wax under it)

GM under rear seat storage box (no shown-also removed to clean under it)

Bose 6 disc player, OnStar etc.

 

Any suggestions welcome.

Given the slow sales of new trucks and gas prices and the deals on new ones soon to come with year end clearances. You will do well to get 16 to 18k or so. Not that you do not have a nice looking truck but if you are a smart shopper you will be able to get a new one with full warranty and lower loan interest for about 8k more when clearance starts. Your axle ratio and engine will play a factor in its marketablity too as to what buyers you attract. You would do well to dump it now and not hold out for a high price because it will be only worthless in coming months. Yes it stinks but that is market conditions as it is a buyers market not a sellers one for SUV's. When I bought my 2000 K3500 new I started to buy a 1998 with only 14k miles on it but they would not come down and I good a new one instead for only about 3K more at the time. If they had come down about 3k on the 98, I would have likely bought it.

Bansell,

 

I traded-in a truck that was almost identical to yours (including accessories) a couple of months ago. The only difference is that mine had 12,000 miles and new Toyo Load Range-E Open Country tirea. The truck was perfect, all records and the body had not even a parking ding.

 

Mine had the 5.3/3.73, Line-X over the rail, factory mud flaps, factory chrome nerf bar, darned near everything I could buy for it. Color was Pewter Metallic with Gray leather. Bose 6-disk; the whole enchilada.

 

I traded it in on a 2006+ Duramax/Allison and got $20,000. The dealer further detailed it and put it on his lot for $22,000. Apparently, used truck sales are so slow that they are having trouble selling it...the truck is still on his lot.

 

And I'm grinning from ear-to-ear Driving my new Duramax. :tear:

 

Hope this helps,

 

Steve

Bansell,

 

In re-reading my post, I did not mean to have a negative tone. I could have easily sold my 2003 to my across the street neighbor, but didn't because he is a butthead and I didn't want to see him own my gorgeous truck.

 

My friend, you only need ONE buyer. Make signs and provide handout fliers that tell all about the truck that lookers can take with them. Put balloons on it...anything so it will be seen and draw attention. Hussle and you will sell it.

 

I'd probably put a price of $20,999 on your truck and, if were mine and I was hussling, I'd have it sold in a week.

 

Good luck, my friend.

 

Steve

When you trade a truck in, you do not know what you are really getting for it unless you are very carefull as they were not really giving you 20k for it as it was likely really closer to 17 or maybe 18k tops. Always get you best possible cash deal, THEN talk about a possible tradein and then you will know what you are really getting for it. Dealers can easily fudge the numbers and pad them to make it look lije you are getting a lot more money than you are on trade in. It is a very old trick.

Snoman,

 

I owned and operated a retail jewelry store in Portland, OR for many years and retired at 48 years of age. Believe me, my friend, I know what money is all about and I have been "shot at" by experts of every nationality.

 

Believe me, the baffoons that call themselves truck salesmen do not compare to negotiating a diamond deal with an Indian (Ghandi-Indian) dealer. The car guy is an amateur by comparison.

 

I did good; it took a while, but I did good.

You should try Chinese wholesalers handling electrictronic parts by the shipping containor loads. Man do they nit pick on price too. I can imagine what the Indian Diamond merchants are like as there are a lot of those buying and running gas stations here and they are a trip at times.

Hi guys...

 

Am I crazy?

 

I am trading with my brother in law... His 1999 S10 Blazer w/120K miles and $16K for my Silverado.

 

His Blazer great shape inside and out but has recently shown low oil pressure (no noises).

 

I drive 10 miles back and forth to work, and figure I will load up on some heavy oil for the time being :cheers: and see how long the motor lasts.

I figure his truck is work about $2K even needing the motor.

 

He has been after my truck for some time, and he is a great guy.. I think I could get closer to 19K on the street, but this helps him out a bit to..

 

Im crazy right? eventualy I want a duramax...

Not a bad deal really and as far as oil pressure just try some 10w30 or 15w40 in hot weather (not 10w40). If it has a 4.3, it has a good bottom end since it is based on a 350 and as long as you have atleast 30 PSI cruising it will run for a long time.

Don't go heavier on the oil...Just pour some Coca-Cola in there!

 

That's what my uncle used to say anyway. :cheers:

 

 

 

 

 

Actually Coke is good for freeing up rust seized engines. (pepsi is even better) and the diet stuff works even better yet. THe phospuric acid in the pop eats the rust and the diet leave no sugar residue behind. You pour it in the cylinders. I have used this trick a few times too in years past.
