Question The Price is Right?

Okay I found a 1993 Subaru Impreza Wagon with 114,000 miles for sale for $6,600 out the door. It was repainted recently and has a new timing chain. Is this a good deal? I drove it and everything is solid. It will need a new starter in the not too near future, how much do those usually run? Oh yeah it was AWD and a manual transmission too. I put a refundable security deposit on it last night so get back to me with what you think ASAP!
Thanks
Andy

Thumbs down

That seems high to me especially for a car that has been repainted, and has over 100k. I've seen similar cars with less miles and good original paint for half that.
IMHO you should keep looking.

It's not really a good deal. A dealership here got a 98 Impreza RS with 40K miles ask about $11K.

Exclamation

Go to www.kbb.com and punch in all the numbers. I did it real quick using a 1993 Impreza L wagon with 114000 miles, and my zip code (Detroit suburb) and got $4400.00! So go to KBB, go to used car values, then go to retail. I'm sure you can get a better price. That seems way too high for a car that's been repainted and has so many miles. You might want to check Trader Online also. That's a pretty good place to find a used car.

Unhappy

So I went to KBB and found a big price difference. Here in CA I came up with $5,360. Another thing is that I am a college student and would rather not try to pay off student loans and make a car payment.

AndyC,
You may want to print that Kelly Blue Book page out and take it to the dealer. He may lower his price accordingly. One thing dealers hate is an educated customer! If he tries to play the "but it's been re-painted" angle just tell him the KBB price reflects a car in excellent condition, and if the car was repainted it was to put it back into excellent condition. Just remember though, the car does have a lot of miles. Even though it is a Subaru which is notoriously reliable, you will have potentially higher maintainance costs. But probably not any higher than you would with any other used car. And you do have one hell of a resource right here! Good luck!
