    Resale value help

    Hello,
    I have a 2002 WRX wagon with about 133K on it. Brand new brakes and a new clutch, she is running great. Body has a few dings and a rust patch, but otherwise it is in fine shape. Am I crazy to try to sell it at this point? I am looking for a new car and would ideally like a trade in value for it. Kelly BB says its worth about 8K, but I am not sure what I could realistically get for it. Anybody have any advice? Want to buy a nice WRX?

    wrong forum for advice on selling your car

    But for a 2002 wagon you should expect 6-8k depending on the size of that rust spot. I would personally that care of that rust spot

    the best thing to do to get an accurate idea is look on your local craigslist, autotrader, cars.com, etc and see what 02-03 wrxs in similar condition/mileage are going for

    base your price on that. kbb isn't that accurate anymore especially with the economy.

    KBB changes with the economy and price market. They usually are a great way to find a general price, especially when there are so many options and a high/low/mid price that is expected.


    However nothing beats knowing the local market. Craigslist and search is your friend.

    i work as an auto damage estimator for an insurance company, and i deal with a lot of totals, so i have a ton of experience with vehicle values.

    in california, the department of insurance requires realtime market values to settle totals, but most of the rest of the country uses NADA for their valuations. way more realistic value than KBB.

    good luck.
