My guess is that the insurance company thought it was a transmission issue but infact it was a Broken Shifter. I paid $7k for the car and thought I was getting a steal. Guess not judging by all of the posts I am getting.

Right now there are a large number of 2015 "car2go" smarts for sale on the used market. Most have 50-300 miles on them, and have the heated leather seats and nav. They do not have the alloy wheels. They do not have a salvage title, come with factory warranty, and are selling for $8-9K. There are plenty of opinions as to how much a salvage title devalues a car. 20% is not out of line. Based on Steves KBB screen capture, your smart is probably worth somewhere around $5K. Depreciation has not been kind to us, which is why i am keeping my 2013 for a long time.

As far as price goes, I'd say you're looking at around $5,000. Salvage titles and three owners in such short time will make it a hard sell for many folks out there.
I honestly appreciate everyones info on these posts. I am new to the smart car forums and thought I would be able to make my money back and more. Judging by everyones post and info, I will def be adjusting the price. Thank You Guys for your help!

Why buy the little car and then quickly buy a larger car? Why not just buy the larger car from the getgo?
