Thanks again so very much for all your advice in how to handle this. Notice below, what Dempsey came back with after seeing you report. I got a call from Liberty this morning and they offered $6,000, or what I originally sent them from Team Chevrolet, and they thought that was far too much. So, after contacting you and getting the your DV comps., and paying for my own CarFax, I told them I’d settle for $8,000 or see them in court. They are sending me the $8,000.
I appreciate all your help, and will recommend anyone to contact you first, in the event they need help with this.

I heard about a recent positive trial result in a Diminished Value trial in Multnomah County before Judge Dailey... the jury awarded more than the offer.
