06 Trade-in value question
I have a 06 Mazda 3 i Touring w/ 73k miles that i plan on trading in soon for the 2012 mz3 sky hatch. My question was whether it is worth it to fix a few problems it has before trading it in. The car has broken passenger side strut, a few paint scrapes on the back fender and the corner of the rear bumper. The bumper has been dented in that corner and was popped out, so only noticible when up close. The powertrain on this car is Pristine.
How much will this hurt my trade-in value? Is it even worth it to spend the $600+ to replace the struts and get a touch up paint job?
