Step 2: Replace replaceables

Remember that your car's appearance is important to a buyer. If you are seeking a good price for an expensive car, replace even minor items such as side mirrors and bumper strips--though an inexpensive paint job is likely to make the buyer skeptical. To aid worn seats, stop by a local auto supply store or large discount outlet for seat covers.

Things to consider fixing or replacing:

  • Cracked windshields
  • Broken stereo
  • Headlight or interior bulbs
  • Cracked or torn upholstery
  • Fuses

Things to let pass:

  • "Cover-up" paint job
  • Minor dings or scratches
