How much is a used 2012 Volkswagen Jetta worth?

Is my 2012 Volkswagen Jetta worth enough for me to try and sell it, or should I just take it to the junkyard? I’m not sure how old a car can get before it’s not worth trying to resell it anymore.

Your used 2012 Volkswagen Jetta may be worth anywhere from $3,180 to $11,130 depending on the car’s condition. If your car is in really good shape, you could get a decent amount of money for it. Even if your car has a lot of issues, you probably won’t get as much money for your vehicle by selling it for parts.
If you do decide to sell your Jetta for parts, you might be able to get as much as $2,500 for it, depending on how many of the individual parts of your car are in good shape. If this sounds like a good deal to you, visit some local scrapyards to get a better idea of how much money your specific Jetta is worth.
