I'm Selling My 2006 Balt LS. How Much Should I Ask?

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
89,000 KM
4 Door Sedan
Has winter tires on it: Hankook I Pikes

I also have a set of 4 summer tires: Yokohama Avid Ascend - used for 3 weeks and cost me $700

Its a great car and reliable. I bought it at 40,000 km and have run synthetic oil since then. but the only thing is that there are 3 scratches on the hood (about 3 inches long for each) which was made by a horse. And 4 scratches which are about 2 inches each on the driver side door. And the window has 2 cracks

So I'm just wondering what is a realistic amount to ask? I went to a dealership to buy it off me and they offered me $2000 but my bottom line was $2500 for some quick cash. What should I ask for a private deal?

Thank you.

Additional Details
MANUAL TRANSMISSION
NO AIR CONDITIONING

I BOUGHT IT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. THEY ASKED $7200 AND I GOT THEM DOWN TO $5700 CASH



* I don't really want to sell it but I NEED money because I'm waiting for my new job to start and I really need the money



looks exactly like this car. same colour

I'd hit the hood with the decent touch-up paint if you haven't...or see what a local place would charge for a blend job to make them less visible if they are deep scratches.

I'd say 4500~ or so is a fair price, the no A/C bit will kind of kill it for most though.

I tried using touch up paint on my car but it looks darker than the paint already on my car lol so i didnt bother putting it on the hood

Selling tip: Run up the price and put "OBO". That way when the potential buyer lowballs you to the price you originally wanted, you both win.
