Get a blue book value and go from there. Typically the bank will do that and say what they will loan for the car. 14000 seems high for an 04, mine has quite a bit more mileage, but I don't think 5k...

Hum, thats odd. My car even with 115k miles still gets 29mpg+. I guess each car has its own quirks. Heck my moms 08 outback gets 33-34 out of the 2.5i

STi's are amazing. However, you won't get 30mpg very likely with one for a few reasons. The 6MT tranny is shorter geared so at highway speeds you would be at a higher rpm than the 5MT in the WRX, and...
