It varies! Go to NADA.com and follow the steps for a used RX-8. Fill in as much information as you can about the car. Be very specific about the miles, options and the condition of the car. If you are not sure of the condition, ask some one that you trust and feel confident in their car knowledge. After you provide all the data, you'll get three prices. Loan value, what a bank should finance for you. Retail value, what you should pay for the car from a car lot. Average price, normal fair market price for the car. If you are buying the car, try to get a price as close to the loan value as possible. But, if you hit a price near the middle of the loan and retail value, you got a fair deal. BUT!!! If you are buying it privately, expect to pay a higher price than from a car lot. Just do your homework, decide what you're willing to pay for the car then stick to your number! Price yourself at least $1000.00 below your max price when negotiation is in progress. That way you have some margin and might get it for less than you planned. Also, take the car to Firestone and pay $29.95 for a complete vehicle inspection BEFORE you buy it! They will isolate any potential "GREMLINS" waiting to bite you in the ass! I hope that helped.

Thanks Logan. I was asking because I own one and I thought about selling it! Have a great day!

OK...in that case, inflate what you actually want from the car by at LEAST $1000.00; as a rule, when people buy ANYTHING, they want to haggle. So, price it higher and negotiate tough but fair! Wish I were in the market, I've always liked RX-8's!
