How much is a used 2009 Ford Focus worth?

My daughter is moving overseas for a job. When I asked her if I could help, she wanted to know if I could sell her 2009 Ford Focus for her. I’ve sold cars in the past, but not for a long time, so I want to get the price right—how much is a 2009 Ford Focus worth?

You’re doing a great job helping out your daughter! As far as a price goes, a used 2009 Ford Focus is worth about $4,800.
However, your Ford Focus might be worth something else. Numerous factors determine the value of a used car, but most notably these aspects:
  • Mechanical condition
  • Cosmetic condition
  • If the car has been in an accident
  • Trim level (S, SE, SEL, or SES)
  • Optional equipment and features
  • Mileage
Mileage is probably the most significant factor in the price of a used car, so if you want to get a fair value, use an online vehicle valuation tool. These allow you to get a fair value in just minutes and are free to use. Some of the more popular options are:
  • Edmunds
  • National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA)
  • Kelley Blue Book
  • TrueCar
  • AutoTrader
Once you sell the car, remind your daughter to cancel her insurance so she isn’t paying money for something she doesn’t need.
