    There was and maybe still is a 00 escort with 13k miles for sale near to me for near 2 years now guy is looking 1300 quid for it no sign of a buyer yet.

    Keep us posted and best of luck with the sale.
    Was kinda hoping to get close to a grand for it couldn't see anyone paying much more for a car of this age just seems a real
    shame that a genuine low mileage car is only worth the same as a high mileage wreck but I guess that's the mentality in this country it's all based on what the cheapest on done deal is going for

    The only way to find out is to put it up for sale. You can always lower the price later.
    I'm with the resistance

    I'll be selling a 2005 MK2 focus hatchback in the next few weeks, 12 months test and few months tax, 4 recent tires, a few marks etc and I don't think I'll get near €1000 for it as its a 1.6 petrol. Unfortunately the backside has dropped out of cars that are 10+ years old.

    Insurance on older cars at the moment is not going to help the sale. But imagine given you have some tax and test and low mileage, that it is worth a grand. But may have to wait for right buyer. Stick it up and see if you get any bits.

    Joking aside, I'd pitch it at around a grand and highlight the FSH, no immediate spend needed, good tyres, etc. See how it goes.
    Almost can guarantee you will get a barrage of callers with very lowball offers and have conversations bordering on the insulting, and some of those callers being nocturnal.

    Sounds like a nice car though. I'd nearly offer you 350 myself just to take the pain away.

    I traded in a 02 Focus 1.6 petrol with 60K miles for my mother - very clean, apart from the usual rotting boot due to water ingress. The guy asked what I thought it was worth, and we agreed on a grand.....

    He did mention that he would find it very hard to trade, due to the difficulty of people getting insurance on it. As a result, he has kept it as a loan car to clients. The mother now has a 151 Golf and is much happier!

    If you can afford to, keep it, put it in a nice dry shed, take it out in 15 years time, throw dust over it, and advertise it as a "barn find".

    €999, but first 500 you get offered take it.

    I'm looking to pick up something cheap before I'm back to the UK on Tuesday.

    Just to update this put the car up for €1100 and the first viewer fell in love with it and paid €950 for it so goes to show a good well minded car is still worth a premium over a higher mileage rougher example.
