    I have a 2014 S60 with 32k miles. It has nearly every package except for the sound package, it has one "accident" where it was just cosmetic to the frount bumper which has been replaced by Tesla. The airbags were never deployed. Silver with black leather seats

    Need more info, but be prepared to take at least a 15% reduction on the overall selling price since it's been in an accident no matter how small. Most will either run away from the listing, or really try to haggle on the price of the vehicle. Does it have AP1?

    Im actually not sure if it does or not, but i dont think so. I bought it in late 2015 from someone who owned it previously. Is there any way to find out?

    AP1 = Autopilot 1st gen. Do you have a picture of your vehicle on the "road" at all times in the middle of your instrument panel? It would be hard to imagine that you have AP and don't know about it..

    No i do not, i thought maybe it did because i have parking sensors all around the car but i guess those are two seperate things. Ive never really been into the whole autonomous driving thing so i really havent payed much attention to it

    Look at the "Driver Assistance" tab on the left side of the settings screen.

    While there are certainly other buyers who don't care about this, this will also lower what most are willing to pay. Your best bet would be to get a trade-in quote from Tesla and then adjust up a few thousand for a third party price.

    Some steps I would suggest to arrive at a realistic number:
    1. Ask Tesla what they would trade it in for. They would likely sell it for ~$10-$15K more reconditioned and with extended warranty, so that would give you a range.
    2. Look at Tesla Inventory S60 CPO to see what Tesla has in stock today.
    3. Look in the TMC Tesla For Sale section, see if you find comparable cars and what price the owners are asking and how long they've been on the market.
    4. Check out ebay motors to see what they sell for
    Then decide how you want to price it (choice are quick sale, fair market value, holding out for a sucker) and how you want to sell it (trade-in, consignment, private sale). If you are buying a new car, consider any trade-in sales tax credit that may apply in your state (for example in WA, I get 10% of trade-in value in sales tax credit, so if I privately sold the car for 10% more than the trade-in, I would break even on the money but have to do work and take the risks associated with private sales).

    My guess based on quick glance of comparable cars at above you're looking at around $40K private sale assuming you have the basic options like tech package and leather, possibly a bit more, depending on options and current condition (tires, brakes, paint, interior, etc). The the accident could slow you down a little if it appears on a carfax.
