How much should I ask for a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback - as is - timing belt broke. Body is good. Transmission one year old.

    It is my understanding that the pistons would have continued to turn thus bending the valves out of shape -so would need a new engine. In that case could we ask for more than a $1000?

The private party retail book value based on 120000mi (just a guess) ranges anywhere from
$4700 (fair condition) to $5300 (good condition). Assuming it would cost $500 to replace the timing belt, you should probably deduct at least $1000 from the total since anyone buying the car would be buying it blind since they couldn't test drive it. If the motor is fine, it would be worth more to repair it than to get what you can as is.

    Assuming everything else works and the engine is bad, $1500 would be a reasonable price.
