got car on 4/22/12 and now am in the market for a new home. i would rather have a nicer house than a nicer car. it has 1200 miles on it, but is my DD. everything is stock, and once again is the base sedan with factory short throw shifter... i live in washington and bank owns title so may need to meet locally to finalize at the bank. i am asking 26k.

Not right now you cant. Inventory is short and anything wrx is very hard to find.
Cant even order a '13 until september.

$26k is a decent price for what he's selling considering these cars hold their value very well. My question is, why did the op buy the car if planning to buy a home so soon?

You got a point there but if it was me I would wait but that's me.
I was wondering the same thing, maybe he wasn't planning on buying a house and then changed his mind?:confused1

thanks mango, wasnt planning on buying a home so soon... i guess having a family changes that perspective pretty quick... and having a more forgiving debt to income ratio could help me out a lot. i plan on coming back to the subie world eventually. i should have just looked for a house first instead of getting amped up on a new car...

That's what a dealer told me when he wanted to sell me a 2011 base WRX with 15k on it for $28,800!!! Bought a 2012 premium WRX with 5,800 miles on it for $25k the next day. His is still sitting on the lot, lol!. They're out there. Just don't be impulsive and look.

Before the whole jap. disaster you could of. I got mine for 26k but I had a good down payment. :drive2:
im confused, the disaster would have no impact on sales tax you pay in Michigan, nor would your down payment. 6% sales tax in Michigan and getting a deal for 500 below invoice on your base hatch is plausible for 26k, and most likely what you got. Washington tax is 8.3% and at invoice pricing at 25k makes a grand total of 27k and some change. thats off topic though, would like to keep the thread about selling my car that is at a pretty fair price since i could get 25k taking it to a lot:)

are you talking sales tax? because I live in WA and it is 9.5% last time I checked..
i will correct my statement..... Washington has a 6.5% sales tax base rate, each city adds its own sales tax on top of that. kennewick adds 1.8%, and kent must add 3%:eek:. other states are different, such as in Michigans case, they dont have any city, or county tax added to their base of 6%... please stay on topic though lol:rolleyes:

The point is, he is tryin to sell his car that he bought, it has very low miles, it's in near new shape. $26,000 isn't terrible since you can't hardly find new to buy for that price. What I meant by tax is some states charge tax on new cars but not on used. Some charge full pop on new some discount used. He is trying to sell a car, leave the comments out of it.

wasn't trying to correct you or anything. was actually wondering how the whole tax thing works.

sorry for the sidetracked comment.

OP, I have been bugging my friend to get a WRX, will send this thread to him.

I meant the availability of the wrx/sti. Before the disaster there was a lot more out in the states and if you had a good down payment you could get a better price. Anyway good luck with the sale,didn't mean to troll.

its ok chance, years ago i wondered why tax was higher when i traveled, and i looked it up. i was very generic in saying Washington, and saw why you would wonder what i meant. thanks for the word of mouth, i appreciate it.
