Pricing rationale

Per average dealer retail for this car (given condition and extra low mileage) is $13,100 and average private party sale is $11,616.  I have also seen this exact car, except with much higher miles and no extras, listed at CarMax for $12000.  I have seen various prices on craigslist and autotrader ranging up to $12k depending on condition, but always with higher miles.  Based on the condition, the low miles, the extras, and the included extended warranty good for two more years, I feel that my asking price very fair.  I show the appraisal (from their web site) in the photos below.

Reason for Sale

I bought this car (new) because I needed something to drive while I converted my truck to electric.  I have been driving the truck for about 1.5 years now and the Smart Car rarely leaves the garage.  There is nothing wrong with it, and I enjoy driving it a lot, especially with the top down.  But the truck is my daily driver and I can't justify keeping an extra car that is rarely used.  I want someone else to enjoy it.
