Hi Jeff,

I've moved your post here to the Buick Reatta Buy/Sell forum where it will get more exposure to Reatta enthusiasts.  Good luck with selling your car.

Thank you Ronnie. I've had various suggestions that I post some Carfax type information on it. Is there a less expensive, but reliable alternative to Carfax? Would that even help?

At your price point I think a good description and photos is more important than a carfax report. If a buyer gets serious and wants to buy your car he won't mind paying to get his own carfax report or you can get one for him if he requests it. You might want to use the form that was developed for selling your Reatta. You can find it here. Just copy it, fill it out and post it here in your ad.

Thanks Ronnie. When people have inquired, they ask for a car report, but I do not sense their interest is more than casual.

Other comments about this Reatta: West Texas car, garaged by original owner, never exposed to road salt. 

I purchased it as an investment, but finding it harder to sell than I predicted. I thought that someone wanting a sexy 

daily driver as opposed to a junky old car would snap this up. I was mistaken. Willing to consider any reasonable offer

that does not leave me skinned alive.

When he said "West Texas" he was not kidding.........El Paso is about as far West as you can go.

From where I live to El Paso is roughly 8 hours at the Texas speed limit,  so please don't ask me to go look at the car.

I am on my 6 or 7th Reatta, most have been higher end ones and I have never done or asked for a carfax - on a 30 year old $3500 car it is ridiculous to ask or do one
