Market for a '99 SE? new
#1061315 - 09/28/05 05:32 PM

So what's the market for Contours in the NW? I have a '99 V6 SE Sport MTX with 72,000 miles that I bought new. I've got all the service records, it's been garaged its whole life, and EVERYTHING works perfect and is stock with the exception of the sunroof (busted motor). IF I decide to sell it, what's a price that it would realistically sell for? I haven't decided to sell it yet, I'm just checking my options.

Thanks for any input.

Unfortunately the used market sucks for the Contour.
Dont expect much.
Use www.kbb.com for a rough estimeate of value.

I've seen SVTs go for $6000 with less miles. I would guess you could start at about $4000 and see how it goes. It sounds like a nice car, and it's a MTX!! Unfortunately right now isn't exactly a seller's market.

I'll try to take some pictures tonight.

KBB at private party price puts it at $3740 for "good" condition. I know that if I was buying one though I'd put a lot of stock in the service history and it being one owner.
