I bought my 2007 STI with 4900 in February for 30k. so probably some where around 18-22k depending on color, avalible history, condition, and other things.

They probably want as much for it as you could find an 06 for, with a 2.5 liter

my buddy picked up an 02 wrb with 42k for 11.5k last February. obviously not as low as 2200 but I would guess around 18k.

For a 2002 Subaru? I would pay bluebook value, maybe SLIGHTLY higher. We're talking about a Subaru afterall, not a Ferrari 275 GTB.

NADA has it at $9,750. I suppose I could be talked into $10K. If you pay more than that for a 12 year old stock Subaru, you're crazy nuts laughable.

I overestimated by a lot. Blue book is only 13.5k so I would expect it to sell around there maybe as high as 15. Someone will buy it for sure. What is it listed at?

2200 original miles?

Thats TOO low. What that says to me is the car has sat for the last 11 years, most likely every bushing and gasket in it has rotted out, and still needs all the maintenance of an 11 year old car.

I agree. The motor isn't even properly broken in yet, but the cylinder walls have had a chance to corrode. Has this car even had its oil changed yet? I'd imagine it's badly contaminated unless it was kept in a climate controlled vault this whole time.

Personally with a car with that low of mileage I would compare it to the msrp pricing minus about 10% AND minus the condition costs it will need now or most likely need. Some of these included what people have previously said bushings, mold, tires, fluids, gaskets, and other engine components which all WILL arise when a car has been sitting even for a few months sometimes and other times a couple years.

A lot of cars will run after they've sat for an extended period of time if you get a new battery, tires, inside and out detail, and change all of the fluids but most likely won't be perfect and can still be mold in the seats, under the carpet, gaskets leaking, bushings rotted out, etc.

That being said, hypothetically say everything was actually in perfect condition and none of the above existed, you also have to take in consideration the amount of advancements in the engineering in cars that have been produced since a 2002. If it's a 2002 than it most likely came out in 2001 which would make it a 12 year old car. I would say it's a tough gamble and just be aware of these items and would strongly suggest you take it to a reputable shop that is well known for working on Subaru's before you purchase and ask them (for a price I assume) to fully inspect the vehicle and maybe make a deal that they will wave the inspection cost if you decide to purchase the Subaru and take it to them to have it updated.

As far as literally answering your original question being asked for how much would I pay? I would say if it were stored in a climate controlled garage and started up/warmed up at least once a month and a drive around the block once which would prevent a lot of the previously stated issues I would value the car at around $12-13,000. I think msrp was around 24.

If the car just sat and has all of the previously mentioned issues I would not pay more than $3,000 because I know to properly make sure the car is good I'd have to replace all or most engine gaskets and pulling the engine would make this easier, replace bushings, take out entire interior and wash it, etc.

This whole ad appears sketchy to me, the whole car is not Mint like I thought it could've been, original owner blew original motor by "offroading" it and supposedly causing around $24,000 of damage for the insurance company to declare it a total loss a couple months after brand new. The car sat for supposedly 10 years then someone bought the salvaged titled car and swapping in a engine which now again needs to be replaced a couple thousand miles later. Why was the whole car re painted? Whole ad = sketchy.

I was just about to speculate it's had a big problem, wrecked, or something and been fixed on the down low. So while it's "clear title" and the ODO hasn't rolled over a lot, it's a scary deal.....don't get fooled.

if its declared a total loss and issued a salvage title, it can't have a clear title unless its been washed.

You are seriously delusional if u think Bushings and gaskets are going to rot in that amount of time.

if the car hasn't moved in 10 years, it is more than possible. ever heard of dry rot? bushings, gaskets, tires, rubber hoses, fuel lines, etc.

Agreed. Seen many people learn the hard way on this when buying an old project car with lots of "new" parts that have been sitting in boxes for 5+ years.

Also, that ad is EXTREMELY sketchy. New paint job on a car that hadn't been wrecked...?
