Look at the no questions asked Scrap value for a 2014!

879 10
Been looking at Trading in my 2014 with 70,000 miles in great one owner condition. Dealers only offering $9,000 trade in my Zip code. Based on this quote today I no longer fear a future bricked car due to a bad battery 2 years from now. The business case is crystal clear based on its scrape value of $3,500 :KEEP

This is truly great news to me because at 9k trade value now, say 7k trade in value in 2 years knowing I can recover $3,500 or so even if it bricks minimizes the financial risk to keep, and this was the first quote. These hold value even as junk!

Just answered a few questions to get scrap value

I am of the opinion that your Volt's scrap value to "Peddle" is nearly directly based on my Volt's value to me.
If I like mine, and want to keep it on the road, I'm going to need replacements as items deteriorate. Your "scrap" car is as likely to be sold part by part as it is to be processed back into elements.
Were everyone of of us to scrap our gen1 Volts, that used part market value would drop, as would a future 'peddle' offer.

The first car to be scrapped has more value (less supply) than the very last car (no further demand).
PowerNationTV(dot)com, June 9, 2020: "Well, it didn’t take long. The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has been spotted at a salvage auction. The car is listed on Copart which is valuing the Corvette at $107,699. That’s around twice the asking price of a new base model."
