How much are you planning to sell it for?
I'm thinking of starting at around $10k and come down as need to sell. That price is still about the lowest right now on AutoTrader. It looks like the recent increased popularity of and interest in EVs has caused the price of older EVs to final stabilize.

I have also noticed the value of my used 2013 FFE has been increasing.

Darn I undersold my '16FFE with 20k miles at 10k then! ...was not getting any interest on this Forum for a few months but eventually it happened and we are both happy (local guy)

Probably other regions of the country are easier ...not easy here as I have yet to see another FFE in 3 years of ownership

On the other hand I see tons of Teslas.

My 2013 FFE is currently listed on AutoTrader.com. I originally listed the car at $9,300 but I've currently brought the price down to $8,400. The only real prospective buyer so far pulled out because he said he was worried about the high voltage battery packs failing after the 8 year/100,000 mile warranty expired and having to pay $20k to replace the battery packs.

Personally, I think if whoever buys the car and puts 50,000 miles on it in three years could then junk the car and still be ahead. I also think that these battery packs are going to last much, much longer than 8 years. And when they do fail there will be plenty of low cost replacement battery packs around that will probably have a much larger capacity.

I finally sold my 2013 FFE. I took a cash offer of $7,600. I only paid $15,000 for it to begin with and I put 30,000 miles on it so I don’t think I did so bad.

There was a structural damage item on the CarFax report when I bought the car. I had the the car checked out when I bought the car and we found nothing that would justify the structural damage item. After three years of owning the car I never did find out why the CarFax report indicated structural damage on the car.

I was doing reverse auction on the car to make it sell. I didn’t owe much on the car and I felt like I already got my money’s worth out of it so I didn’t mind taking a low price. The price had gotten so low that dealers were starting to call me. I had two dealers give me an offer and then back out when they saw the structural damage item on the CarFax report.

I had one dealer specifically tell me he wanted to ship the car to Jordan. The person that bought the car said he was buying the car for a friend in Michigan and paid cash after only a quick glance at the car. I have a feeling the “friend” was actually a dealer and the car will end up going overseas.

I still have the car linked to MyFord Mobile and I’m tracking it’s location. The car has sat in an alley in Dallas since I sold it. I will post where the car ends up or where I lose track of it.

The 2013 was my first all electric car. The car had limitations but I still enjoyed it immensely and I’m sorry to see it go. I only hope the next person that owns the car enjoys it as much as I did.

Yep, it looks like my old 2013 FFE is going overseas. Right now the car is sitting on a dock near Galveston according to MyFord Mobile. I expect the car to disappear soon and then show up in the Middle East or just flat disappear.

I received a message from MyFord Mobile this saying the 12V battery on my old 2013 FFE after not hearing anything from the car for weeks. I figured if the car was communicating with MyFord Mobile I should be able to track. Sure enough, MyFord Mobile indicates that my old is now off the boat and located in Aqaba, Jordan.

Goodbye nice little FFE :cry:

From the people from Jordan that have posted here - they seem to really love the car. So I'm sure it has gone to a great new home.

That's pretty darn cool seeing it get on a boat. Wonder if you will ever hear from it again once it sets sail.
