I know I wouldn't really want to pay them either, but...
Here's some listing within 300 miles of me for pretty much what I'm selling (late 90's, 4banger, 100000miles+)
...and there's plenty more. Do they actually sell for these prices or do they knock of $2000 right away?
Every one of those listings is from a dealer. Prices are always much much higher. I don't think they sell for those prices. I would say after some negotiating they would sell for 1500-2500 less than sticker.
First thing you have to ask yourself is what is the rock bottom price that you would accept. Once you figure that out add about 2000 and list it for that much.
Try edmunds.com for appraisals. KBB and edmunds always differ in value but you can use both to get a good idea.
