If you can imagine yourself in shoes of buyer then you will understand how to present your car. It is amazing how many people try to sell a dirty car. They may succeed but ultimate test is final price.
4. Don't Mislead The Buyer
Even though it may be tempting to disguise faults, there are very good reasons why you should not. You will have a difficult time selling it if you are hiding something major and will have fixed attention on sale thereafter. If you want to sleep well at night, be upfront. Cars get old and things go wrong with them - it's a fact of life. I have always found that being upfront was better, including financially. It's one of those funny things - you seem to lose a few hundred on car but you gain it somewhere else.
There are many buyers who will buy a vehicle with faults because they have expertise and inclination to fix it.
This may seem controversial but having sold many cars I can attest that it is way to go.
