I would suggest letting the mechanic know you are wanting to sell the car, and asking if they know of any potential buyers. That way, maybe you won't even have to bring it back home.

Great idea--I can see plenty of people who, looking for a reliable used car, would mention it to their mechanic first. Or the mechanic may know he could buy it for a fair price, fix it at cost, and flip it himself, which might hit a sweet spot between selling "as is" and spending $1000 to get top dollar.

sold a Honda Accord to our mechanic when the repairs were past what we had and got a nice down payment on a new-to-us car
