    What should I ask for my 2003 WRX sedan

    It is a one owner stock WRX, no mods, never raced etc. 95000 miles, everything is in perfect working order. Two small rust spots on the real fenders wheel well. I was told Subaru uses a clip there and they always rust there. Otherwise body and interior is very good. It has the factory sound system with woofer and the factory security system. I've owned it since new but I am now retired and RVing a lot and don't drive it much anymore. KBB.com puts a value on it around 7800 but a fellow in Staunton VA who runs a hop up shop for Subaru said it would be worth more because it is stock and one owner. You thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Try to sell it for more to the shop owner. Failing that, list it for $1K higher than the highest price you find for similar cars locally, and see what happens. I'd get as much as you can for it. That said, if a potential buyer were asking the same question for the same car, I'd tell them to offer the seller (in this case, you...) less, because it's due for $1K in service (roughly), it's got rust, and so on.

    I hope my honesty is not misunderstood or offensive. May you sell it for lots more!

    Kelley Blue Book - New and Used Car Price Values, Expert Car Reviews
    NADA
    New Cars, Used Cars, Car Reviews and Pricing | Edmunds.com

    Those are three legitimate websites that help to put a value on used cars. Enter vehicle information accurately into each (rust spots would probably qualify the vehicle as middle-of-the-road condition), and take note of each.

    As a general rule: KBB is a seller-biased site, Edmunds is a buyer-biased site, NADA will be somewhere in between. Hope for KBB, expect Edmunds as a counter, and settle on NADA.

    Thank you very much for your reply, no offense taken at all. Your advice sounds about right. Good idea to contact that shop owner. He might know a buyer. Thanks again.

    FWIW...

    My bank uses NADA pricing for any purchases. They will not approve a loan for over that value on used vehicles; if the buyer isn't offering cash, this is something you need to consider.
