Passport doesn't really fit my needs any more so thinking of getting rid of it. Would anyone want it? What might be a fair price in the current market? Likely I'd only sell to someone in SF Bay Area or maybe somewhere else in Northern California which limits my options - unless someone wanted to come get it. Here is what I have:
2019 Honda Passport Elite with quite a few upgrades.
Added by dealer:
Small front air deflector
2" Trailer hitch
Transmission oil cooler towing package
Black metal running boards
Roof side rails and crossbars
Wheel well protection (black, not sure what they call them, see pics)

Added by me:
18" Wheels and Nitto Terra Grappler tires (from JSport) (255/60 R18 112S (rating) M+S)
Ditch lights (2x2) on No-Lo Designs Passport specific ditch light mounts (professionally installed with switch on dash)
JSport lift (installed of course) Jsport Passport/Pilot Lift Kit - Maximizing toughness - Jsport USA
Electronic rear view mirrors/dashcam (front and rear) (professionally installed with power and cable to rear camera hidden)
Front camera (wireless to inside separate display, camera mounted on license plate frame is solar charged)
Cover King seat covers (front seats only) in blue/black
CupHero inserts all over (again in blue)
Interior piano black surfaces (many but not all) covered in matte black vinyl wrapDirtcom Trailswing hitch mounted wheel carrier, with
  • Accessory Hitch
  • Table Support
  • Front Runner Table
  • Accessory Hitch
Full sized spare (same as above) on 18" wheel on Trailswing with cover
Original donut tire included but I've been putting other things in place where it goes
Roof basket shown in pics can be included if someone wants to pay a bit more.

And I probably forgot a thing or two.

It has a bit over 50k miles (don't have exact # handy right now).
A few scratches but nothing major that has not been replaced (I was hit in side in parking lot and in rear at a stop sign, both minor and professionally repaired at auto body shop).
Excellent mechanical shape, has all recalls completed (water pump, hood latch, 3G software update).
Kelly Blue book says it should be worth (just picked Good, not Very Good quality) $35,700-$38,400 but doesn't include many of the above like the Trailswing.
I think it is good deal at $42,000 considering all the upgrades.

What do people think of the price?
Anyone interested? Not that I could sell it this minute but could be done fairly quickly.

Blackbook shows Trade-in of $40,400
Credit Union Finance value is $40,700
You can not be sure that a buyer will want those OEM Options nor the tire upgrade. A fair assessment would be to add up all of the accessories without labor. Let's say it was $6,000 (not including labor).
$6,000 x 40% (because this stuff is considered used) = $2,400

40,700 + 2,400 = $43,100

I recommend putting the OEM 20" wheels/tires back on and selling the 18" Wheels and Nitto Terra Grappler tires separately.
Take the Full sized spare (same as above) on 18" wheel on Trailswing with cover off and sell it separately, for 60% of its cost when new.

Seems many people in this forum, and more in the other Passport groups I am in, want it outfitted about how I have it. Few people like the 20" wheels for off pavement (and ride was harsh, not to mention the very easy to get wheel rash). Besides, I don't have original OEM 20" wheels and tires, why keep those and who has that kind of space? I sold them.

Still your total came out a bit more than mine so I'm happy with my estimate or even a bit lower if I was pushed.

Your parts list is very enviable.
Maybe contact JONDZ Adventuring (on youtube) and ask which web sites he uses to post his overroading info.
Go to those sites and see if they have a classified section. Join, make a few intro posts, and list your nicely equipped Passport Overroader.

With used cars prices the way they are now I'm sure you can get a great deal on a trade-in if interested or direct sale to dealerships, carmax, etc..

Good luck!

Used car prices are silly right now, we bought our daughters 2019 Subaru Forester Premium - brand new for $26k in July-2019, I saw 2017 Subaru Forester Premium (2 years older) listed for $28k!

It's a great time to sell, and you'll get max. money if you are patient, the only negative (for me is the mileage), but it's a Honda and will run forever, right?

Good luck and thanks for the memories...

That price seems probably fair in this crazy market, but I agree the right buyer will be someone who thinks the price vs. a new vehicle is worth it. Those major accessories will help. Most used vehicles of 2-3 years age with reasonable mileage and reliability are seeming to sell for around their original purchase price private sale and just a little less to dealers. It is really hard to believe but the stories keep coming and online valuation tools confirm it as do dealer offers.

I agree, I would be contacting Carvana and Carmax to see what their offers would be immediately. They will likely even offer to come pick the car up with a check in hand to give to you.

@Cilles we'd hate to lose you here because you've done a fantastic job with that rig. Perhaps you'll sell it in the next owner will wind up here someday?

Carmax, Carvana, and Vroom will not give you any extra money for those expensive features...lift kit, rims & tires, cameras, rear swing with full size spare, side steps, tow package, etc.
Remove what you can and ask $43,900 on Autotrader dot com. You should expect a lot of used car salesmen calling to take advantage of you, by offering a ridiculous price. An alternative to Autotrader is to post it on a site that Overroad enthusiasts visit.

If anyone feels the need to talk about the size of their... garage... please take it elsewhere.

In keeping with the time-honored tradition of my tyrannical rule as an administrator, I have deleted several off topic posts that were made in this thread. Beatings will continue until morale improves, have a nice day 😈

Those numbers are ridiculously low. 2020 FWD Touring with 12,000 miles. The trade-in value is $39,720 and the credit union finance value is $39,975.

For reference my Carvana quote was only for ~26k. 2020 Passport Touring with only 12k miles, like-new condition.

I would absolutely re input all the information!! Seems like something was probably miss clicked (them asking if they can drive it, damage, any of those things). You’d think FWD lowers the value a bit but not that much lol!

Whether you're looking to Trade-in or to buy at Retail, AWDs will change by +$2,000 over the FWDs.

Before you sell it, know what your 2020 FWD Touring Passport is worth and what the used ones are selling for in your area.

Use autotrader to see what other 2020 Passport FWD Touring(s) are selling for, in your area.

Something is definitely wrong with that quote. You can also get a CarMax online quote, or take 45 min and drop into a CarMax--if you have one near you--for an appraisal. CarMax is often offering a premium over dealer trade pricing currently.

Just for the heck of it I did an estimate without my VIN and just typed in the info followed by another estimate using my VIN. The results were wildly different! They were about $8k difference lol.

So of course I had to go to carmax/vroom/autonation next, it seems Vroom is paying by far the most in my region/zip code.

This past 4th of July, I was able to use Autotrader to price and list my car for sale. ($49)
It was sold and gone in 4 days.
I had to dodge about 4 callers that never asked about the car, but only hammered me on the price. I told them that I had chosen the middle of Autotrader's recommended sales figures.

The most startling aspect was watching the buyer counting several tens of thousands of dollars.
