The lease is up on my 2008 Subaru Impreza Wagon (manual trans) in November, and I was simply just going to hand in the car and walk away. But today I carefully read my lease contract, and it says the purchase price is just shy of $10K. I KBB’d the price with mileage (20K), and it’s coming up about $16K in good condition.
My question is, how well does KBB hold up these days? I haven’t sold a car in over 4 years, so I’m hesitant to believe I can get that much. But even if I only got $13-14K for it, I’d rather me pocket the extra money than the dealership (the wife and I are planning on buying a joint Prius next year, so a down-payment boost would be nice), even if it comes with some car-selling hassle.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
