Haggling Tips on 2015 Subaru Impreza
nclark posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingI think I found a used car that I really want, but wanted to get some advice on haggling. The car is a 2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0i hatchback, 5-speed manual, with 96k miles and has a sticker price of $10,500. Looking to buy it from a small dealer/mechanic that specializes in Subarus. Here are all the details I know about the car: Brand new tires, brakes, and general maintenance (oil, filters, etc) completed on it. I do trust this mechanic in that I believe there's nothing mechanically wrong with it (their main business is being a mechanic, not selling cars & they have a good reputation/reviews online). Clutch and shifting through gears feel OK to me, but I'm no expert in predicting clutch life (only ever had 1 other manual car). Unsure When the last time transmission fluid was replaced and if the spark plugs have been changed (that's a 97k maintenance item). I figured I'd make this a condition of the sale if it hasn't been done. It has a pretty nice body minus one small (3" diameter) ding on the liftgate. Maybe caused by backing into something, not from a rear end collision. The interior is dirty, but nothing that a detailer couldn't take care of (no rips in seats, no cracks in plastic, etc) Only had 1 owner, and the title is clean. Been sitting on their lot since February (I assume because not many people are looking for a manual?). Similar cars at other dealerships in my area are in the $11-$12k range, so the $10,500 already seems like a steal. Trade in value according to CarMax and KBB is about $6k, and they've put in maybe $1k of work into it. So I figured I'd start my haggling at $7k (them breaking even) armed with this data as well as the fact that the cars been sitting unsold for 8 months. Do you think that's an insultingly low price to start the haggling at? What else am I not considering for buying this car?
Is the Car Worth It?
Trinity posted a topic in General Car DiscussionHi there, I have found a 2008 VW Jetta that I am interested in purchasing. It has 164,000 miles and costs $2,600. I am sixteen and am just looking for a car that will get me from point A to point B, I don’t need anything fancy or flashy as this is my first car. That is about all of the money I have saved up, but I know nothing about cars, and I don’t know if this is a good buy or a ripoff (I’m very worried about getting a lemon because it’s from a private seller, but all I can afford are from private sellers). I would really appreciate it if someone could let me know if it is worth my money. Thanks, Trinity :)
I want buy used BMW M4

What do you think about that? Thanks for answers.
BMW 325e or Honda Civic DX
apm1991 posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingHi, my Oldsmobile recently exploded forcing me to look for a new car. I'm looking for something very cheap that isn't going to collapse within seconds. Two cars I'm looking at nearby are a 1996 Honda Civic DX and a 1986 BMW 325e. Both are going for $1000 which seems suspiciously cheap to me from what I've heard about both these cars. The Honda needs a tune up and a tps sensor but otherwise both are allegedly in pretty good shape, both have around 125,000 miles. What I'm wondering is What is the cost for repairs on both cars (I've heard BMWs are pretty expensive)? What is the reliability? Do these prices seem to be about right for cars in fair shape? Are these gas guzzlers? I'm going to have my mechanic look at it before making a decision but I just thought I'd ask. Thanks to anyone for the help.
How do you decide on your car purchase?
MaxHH posted a topic in General Car DiscussionHello, As part of my master thesis about purchasing behavior on the car market, I’m conducting a survey in the U.S.A. and would like to ask you to take part in it. This survey focuses on your "gut feeling", so it does not matter, if you consider yourself a specialist on the automobile market or if cars do not interest you at all - your opinion is matters! In the end, the results of the US survey will be compared with results from Germany and China to give an overview in what way these "gut feelings"/perceptions towards the car market differ when purchasing a car. You might not know any Chinese car brands and that is fine, if the survey asks you something about Chinese brands answer according your general perception of Chinese products. If you generally have a good impression of Chinese products, give a good rating, if not, give a low one. If you feel uncertain and want to keep an open mind, simply give a middle rating. If anybody feels like they would like to help even further, posting it on your Facebook page will be greatly appreciated! The more U.S. respondents, the better! Simply click the following link for the survey: http://kwiksurveys.com/s.asp?sid=ujidqadudd5ilb0288722 I appreciate your time and effort! Cheers from Germany!

Need help buying first car
newbieCarGuy posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingHi all, I'm transferring from a Comm. college to a University outside my city, but I plan to commute semi daily (2x a week). My family currently has 1 car (3 drivers incl. my mother, brother, and myself) and we're in the market for a second one. We've been looking at cars in the daily ads section for a while now, but it didn't hit me until now that like computers forums, there exist car forums (facepalm). So, to start off, it's probably worth mentioning that outside the most basic maintenance (replacing bulbs, oil change, cleaning car, etc.) my brother and I are clueless. We have a 2005 Ford Taurus with 125,000+ miles on it (which will need to be replaced at some point as well) and we're in the market for a car that is safe, reliable, fuel economic, and not a complete pain-in-the-butt in terms of auto insurance. Most of the miles will be accumulated on the interstate (which I presume is very good) with the commute to and from school. The budget is probably ~$4000-6000 and we don't care about brand names or how "cool" the car looks, but it would be nice if the car doesn't cost an extravagent amount to maintain. If it was your child, what car would you recommend keeping all that in mind?
