dear all -
I need help/guidance. I am getting transferred outside US and need to sell my very new 3 months old Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited Prez.
2013 4 Door Wagon H4 Automatic 2.5i Premium PZEV REAR SEATBACK PROTECTOR,REAR BUMPER COVER,SPLASH GUARDS,ALL-WEATHER + MOONROOF for $25801 ( out of door 28434)
What price can I expect? Any similar experience and guidance so that I don't lose whole lot of money on this super cool new car ..only 4500 miles travelled.
thanks in advance

You lose about 10% of its value when you drive off the lot, and maybe another 10% or so each year after that. 4500 miles is about half a year, so I would try to get 85% of what you paid or better.
Just a rule of thumb, not scientific.

Thanks for the quick response.
Is this rule applied on on-road value?
Do the dealers buy-back the car? What are the best way to sell it? Craigslists?

Did you sell it yet? I am interested. What color? Remote start up? In Sacramento. Haven't used this site before so don't know how to contact you privately.

That's just a rule of thumb. CarMax will give you a written quote valid for 7 days. Start there and then maybe try to beat their offer.

#192 of 214 Special Appearance Package
Dec 27, 2012 (9:40 pm)
I'm almost commited to a new Subaru. Never owned one. Looking at the 3.6 with special appearance package. One thing i'm a bit hesitant with is the keyless starter. I'm coming from a BMW and am really fearful of all the electronic gizmos that can fail, especially when it comes to starting the car. But I really love the saddle brown leather. Anyone have an opinion on the reliability of the keyless starter. I know it is new for Subaru, but I guess i wonder what is involved in one and what could possibly/likely fail.

Never heard a complaint about them...at least not yet.

the only thing to be wary of: if you lose your key, instead of spending a dollar it will cost a hundred dollars.
