2014 Chevy Cruze

I am looking at a 2014 Chevy Cruz with 96k on the odo I think I can get it for $6500 which looks like it would make a good flip but I don't know anything about them or the market for compact cars. Any info or opinions.
Eco sedan, all options except navigation and very lean and well kept.

How do you know it would make a good flip if you dont know the market?

The way I look at quick flips are if I can make a profit selling it for under the cheapest comparable on cl then I'll buy it.

I looked at comparable cars and it looks like it has potential but 20 minutes of research doesn't make me an expert. I would guess a compact car in this price range would have a decent market but maybe they are complete pieces of shit nobody wants, maybe they die at 100k, maybe cars like this move quickly and are a pretty solid bet or maybe they don't. I had one car in the last 25 years.

They leak out of every orifice, and eat turbos like candy! Seriously though, check for oil and coolant leaks. Once they get around that mileage they start turning into money pits.

Girlfriend has a 2014 with the turbo 4 cylinder. Has about 110k miles on it and I cant wait until she trades it in. Check engine light has probably been on longer than off. Leaks oil from god knows where and makes the cab stink. Car surges and wants to lunge forward in hot weather with the AC on.

$6500 seems high.


Edit. MSRP for a new base model is only $18K. $6500 is out to lunch.

I am going to pass on it. The asking price seams to be closer to 9k but all the ones on ebay are classified ads so no way of knowing what people are getting.
