"AS if there weren't enough to cope with this year, the Prius battery is gone, baby, gone. If we were going to be at home for the next couple of months, we'd be here to break in a new battery ($2830), maybe then sell it. I asked DH if he'd like to keep his car and do that. No way! We're bringing in the title this morning and getting a check for $2000. Like a trade-in without actually driving off in a new car. "
I 2005 Prius in 'good condition to excellent ' is worth $8600 to $9300 according to Kelly Blue Book.
So you are willing to sell it for $2000, and someone does a $2800 repair and now sells it for $8000 plus?
Did you check around for 'used' Prius battery from a junk yard? Might have saved you a bunch.
A 2003 Prius....is worth about $4500 private sale.
What year was the Prius?
