I paid $6000 for my 98 XE 5 speed with 56,000 miles about 3 months ago. It's a 4wd extended cab. I think $9000 would be a fair price for you with that many miles. You could always check KBB and NADA websites for the resale value in your area.

for refrence- my truck was an '02, 2wd auto non-sc when i bought it in '05 for $11.5k. still a v6 crew cab though. so i think that $9k is pretty fair for a truck like yours that is almost ten year old vehicle.

Hopefully Penski and SexyChick will chime in. The price seems about 1k low or so but one thing to consider, the timing belt is coming up and the supercharger may need a rebuild. If you keep it too long, you are going to have to do these items and probably some others. If you are really looking to get rid of it, then 9k may work but I would push for 10k. It falls in the middle of the price range.

I wonder if the buyer knows about the mpg that it will get, lol.

i would like to meet someone that can get blue book value on a stock vehicle. its rare, or doesn't exist, because there is always some sort of bargain. the seller wants a fair price, and the buyer wants to feel like they are getting a good deal or making a solid investment. bluebook is a general guideline, but not realistic.

^ the bold text is a major thing to consider. its over $1k in work.

Thanks a lot for everyone's input. I'm gonna see if I can get it somewhere mid 9's and I'll let everyone know what the final decision ends up being.

As a buyer (still looking for that perfect frontier) I am convinced that KBB and NADA mean nothing. Especially in today's market. The economy sucks. People aren't buying like they used to. I've mainly been looking at 05+ Frontys and one thing I've seen is that KBB may be 17k but you can find one with the same year and mileage for 12 if you look hard. Not to bash the first gen guys, but I am having a hard time seeing someone buy an 03 or 04 for 11 when you can get an 05+ for 12 or 13. I know I wouldn't spend that much on a truck that doesn't at least look new (most current style). 9k for the OP's truck seems like a good price. I am still kicking myself for not buying an 05 nismo with 35k for 11800 + my trade in (1200).

From my experience in buying a 1st gen frontier is that the SC is always less in value. You can buy a first gen frontier w/sc cheaper than the standard V6. Why? i think it´s because the use of premium gas and less mileage. Also you need to find the buyer which would want to spend more in gas than he would end up buying a full size.

So don´t be suprised to see someone offering you less than what you think you can sell it for.

For what it is worth the 1st gen has held it´s value quite well in the down turned economy.
