Carvana expanded its business model too quickly. With production cuts and limited availability of new automobiles, Carvana stepped in and was offering ridiculous prices for used cars to meet the demand. Carvana expanded too quickly and was selling cars and it was taking months for it to forward correct title and registration documents to the new purchaser.. . . . I think, from what I've heard is that Carvana is on the way down & out. It was a business experiment to try and be a used car dealer without the salespeople? . . . .
Carvana are a bunch of quick buck thieves preying on suckers who think they have no other option but their phones, with no brains, no initiative. They don't WANT your PT Cruiser because it does not fit their shallowminded demographic, and this is their rude way of saying, "Go Away.."View attachment 92033 View attachment 92033

The CDJR dealership I purchased from in the past wholesales or sends to auction any trade that is older than 4-5 years old or over 50,000 miles. Most trades are both. Not too many with less than 50K or younger than 5 years old.Our dealership wholesaled or auctioned used cars that were over 5 years old after the deal was concluded.
With that many miles, faded paint, and that old of a car... that isn't too far off from a typical offer. Hate to say that. Sure the dealer might get a few grand for a PT, but most are being sold at auction or for parts.
I used Carvana once and had a great experience. They offered me almost $5k more than all the dealerships. Sure I could sell for more on my own, but they got rid of the hassle and saved so much time. Good luck on selling or not selling your vehicle.
Even the newest PT is now 13 years old. Too old for a viable used car. Fuel economy of 22-24 mpg doesn't really make the charm of owning a PT worthwhile for most buyers.
Don't get me wrong, I like the PT fine & it is a matter of finding a buyer who is looking for one.
Our dealership wholesaled or auctioned used cars that were over 5 years old after the deal was concluded. The trade-in allowance going towards a new car just made it worth it. Anything on the lot that old had to be sold 'as-is'.
And then put the wheels back onKeep it. Drive it till the wheels fall off.
