How much is a 05 LGT worth with a blown turbo?
 
Hello, I recently bought a 05 LGT with a blown turbo and was wondering how much it is really worth right now? I am only asking because I am finding out that I really dont have the time to fix it. I work shift work and work 7 straight before I get a day off and dont really feel like messing with the car. It is an 05 LGT Limited with 138k, 5 speed and im the second owner. It is not perfect on the outside but the inside is nice. I am just looking for a ball park price that I could get for it if I do decide to just sell it.

Thanks,
-Ryan

buy used turbo, swap that on and youll make a ton more off a running car, if all it is a blown turbo that isnt that bad to replace.

I would love to just buy a used turbo and be on my way! I just dont want to do that and end up blowing another turbo and maybe blowing the engine! Like I said I really dont have the time to do it so im leaning more towards just selling it. MrTris you really think its worth 6800 to 7500? Wow that is alot more than I thought it would be worth. Anyone else have a price range?

Meh.. I'd say 4-5 G's for one with a blown turbo with many other factors considered at that mileage.

.... ask me how I know.

Capt99ws6 04-01-2013 10:50 PM

Yeah I was thinking more around 4500-5000.

Are they still driving it around with a blown turbo?

I personally would want a discounted for damaged mechanically car, that I couldn't fully test out. It's a gamble. If you have looked at the car and feel its worth 4500-5000 then I would offer what you feel its worth to you.

dgoodhue the car is mine. I am trying to figure out if I want to fix it or just sell it.

MrTris 04-02-2013 01:22 PM

@OP, turbos aren't too difficult to replace, from what I can tell, but then again, YMMV.

I got that figure based on mileage and assumed (good) condition. Subtract 12 or 1300 for a new turbo, and there's your price.

Although we didn't ask -- If the turbo is blown, do you know whether or not its shredded itself and gotten sucked into the motor?

Capt99ws6 04-02-2013 10:42 PM

MrTris, yeah I bought it and got it towed to my house and its been sitting in my garage since! The guy I bought it off of said the shaft broke. So I am guessing that there probly is metal in the oil system.

I'd second about $4k-$5k..

So if nothing has changed since you have bought it... how much did you buy it for?

Just ask for that or a little less if you want to get rid of it fast.

If i ever sell mine i was gonna let it go for $5500-$6000.

Might need to reconsider that number.

Capt99ws6 04-03-2013 08:45 AM

spc2125, I dont need to sell it. I'm not hurting for cash or anything. I just dont think I am gona have the time to fix it. And I bought it for a really good price! When I bought it I knew if I didnt fix it I could sell it for more money than what I bought it for.

If you bought it for a good price. Throw $500 for a used turbo and install. Then sell it for a REALLY good price.

Find a local reputable shop. Have it towed to them. Buy used turbo on here. Ship it to shop. Have shop install it. Pick up car. Sell car. Make mucho dinero.
