I referenced a couple in the original post. Visible rust, high mileage, high prices. I just didn't link them because I didn't want to get in trouble for bashing sellers lol

I sure am. Can't drop the price for the time being though. It's what I owe and I don't have the available cash to throw at it.

That's called being upside down on your loan.

Not really. $16k is still between $1000 and $3000 below the NADA and KBB values on it.

If you owe more than people are willing to buy it from you for, it's the definition regardless of what numbers NADA and KBB generate for you on the interwebs. sarry

I don't care what you guys think. You are just internet phantoms and don't really exist.

Your words are meaningless.

I'm not motivated to sell it anymore. Not in a position to buy a replacement and need it for job interviews, etc

Seems to be anything with 4x4 or a bed

Compare the prices with cars. Lots of cars that are reasonably priced (look at any GM W body or even Ford...honda/toyota too). Get in to subaru's though, and again the moron's think a flat four = gold.

How is it possible that you still owe what you listed it for, months ago in September? Aren't you making payments on it?

Sad part is people are paying it. I actually had a hard time selling my wrx and I was asking the same price for 02's for my 04 that was in very good condition. I got lucky with my truck, but prices are ridiculous.
