2011 Yaris for sale

Hi everyone,

I have a 2011 Yaris 2door hatch for sale. It has just 38000 miles. I am the second owner. Its my daily commute car and I recently replaced all shocks with KYBs. I am selling it because I need a 4 door car and this is not working out for me. I am a senior citizen and really kept the car in top shape. I am willing to let it go for $8000 .
Please let me know if anyone is interested. I live in Fort Worth Texas.

Thanks,
Ron

Sounds like a great car however do you really think you can get $8000.00 for it? I'm not being rhetorical, but it just seems like a lot despite the very low mileage. Do you have a way to upload pics? You never know, you might fetch that price for an absolutely mint condition car and pics could help.
Just as a reference, in Canada a 2 door Yaris with 60000 kms (about 38000 miles) in excellent condition would be around $6500 CAD ($4900.00 USD).

Agreed that your price is rather high, but if you can find someone willing to pay then good on you!

Thanks for the msg. No I dont mind at all. I was told that price by some mechanics here who do the oil changes and such on my car. I could have been wrong. How does $7000 sound ? Sure like some advise. I kept it in really good condition and like I had said I changed all the shocks to KYB. The front are Quick Struts by the same company. Not a single problem since I got it.

Used Yaris' do seem to fetch premium dollars. I don't know how I managed it but I bought my '08 with around 170000 km on the clock for, I think $2500.00 and my '06 RS with similar odometer for $2200.00. That said, typical prices now for mine would be in the $3000 - $5000.00 range - they certainly do retain value and they are reliable but I'm sure consumer perception results in falsely inflated resale values. Then again no one but the actual buyer and seller knows what the car actually fetches. Again, without some good quality pics, it's hard to say what you should ask. You could ask $7K and be prepared to allow your would-be buyer to haggle a bit. I don't think it's outrageous to expect somewhere in your $7K price range if you find the absolutely right buyer. Honestly though, even for a very low mileage Yaris of that age, in pristine condition, I would be very reluctant to drop more than $6500 CAD ($5000.00 (USD). Not to say that others who might be captivated by the car wouldn't be willing to pay more. Of course, haha, it's really none of our business and you can ask whatever you want for your car. However, why not take some good quality pics (exterior and interior), post them up and that might help folks here give you a better idea of a price to ask? I can tell you that I'm intrigued to see this car with such low mileage. I'm not in the market for another one myself, but it could generate some interest.

As an aside, add-ons such as your KYB suspension parts often don't add resale value despite being a significant upgrade. I can never sell my swapped and turbo'd '06RS as I'd lose my shirt. I'd basically be giving the engine and turbo kit away for free.

For what it's worth, here's what a nationwide search for a 2011 Yaris hatch with 40k miles or less produced on CarGurus.

Also, from what I understand, KYB are basically OEM replacement shocks/struts, not upgrades.

Well, I stand corrected. Great searching, ern-diz! I guess the later 2nd gen models with low mileage really do hold their value. My apologies, Saint.

Ern-diz, Could you post your search link? Mine keeps defaulting to Canada. I don't know why as I've searched US cars before.

My pleasure!

Hope it's not taken as confrontational/argumentative. Only intention is to add more color to the canvas.

Looks like the cheapest of the three sold and we're down to just two. The link loads with sedans and any mileage, so you'll need to filter those out along the left side...
