I have a 1996 Acura 2.5TL with 184,000 miles on it. The car runs and drives, but it will need some work done to it. Right now it blue books around $3700. If I were to sell it I would honestly be happy with getting around $1,500 for it. I really don't want to have to deal with selling it however and people still complaining about problems with it even though its well below blue book value.
What I would really like to do is donate it to a local highschool or community college shop. Supposedly you can claim the fair market value of the car with a donation, but is there any fine print they don't tell you about?
Would selling it for $1000-1500 be better then donating it and claiming say $3,200 at the end of the year?
If anyone has done this before let me know.
