Question SELLING 2003 BENZ?! HELP!!! :)

Hey! I'm a 20 year old female college student at LSU (geaux tigers!!!) I work 2 jobs, am currently doing 21 hours, and have a 3.8 gpa! My major is Trade & Finance so, with that in mind, I'm weighing the cost and benefits of owning a Benz in college and it's not worth it.

I have a 2003 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor with 117,000 miles. I'm from Houston, so our average yearly mileage is a bit higher than most states. Anyhow, I want to sell it for around $7000-$8000. I know that sounds really low, but I still owe at least $10,000 on it.

This is by far the best car I've ever had. In the past two years the ONLY thing I've had to pay for is my B service, brakes, and an oil change. And
even though gas prices are sky rocketing I have ONLY and ALWAYS put premium (93) gas in my baby.

I'm selling it because, even though I like the status of driving a Benz at a young age, I want something a bit more economical (lower monthly payments) so my mom doesn't have to pay as much and we can have a bit more breathing room. In other words, I'm being crossing over to the darkside and going against my religion and getting an American car. lol

But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do

So what do you think about this? PLEASE give me some insight

I'm also a 20 year old, female, college student lol. I'm attending classes full-time and holding down a job as well - so I know how stressful it can get at times while trying to balance school expenses with your other bills! One thing I would suggest for you to do while trying to sell or get some selling advice on here is to: describe the car the best you can (sedan or coupe, interior condition, extra options, etc.) and include a few pictures. Once the guys see all that, they will be able to help you out a lot.

Good luck with school - and the car selling as well!
