I realize that $9,000 is a little high for this car. Both Kelly Blue Book and Edmunds.com priced it at about $8700. A friend told me that the way to get the best price on a car is to find out how much the car dealer will be making if he sells it to you at that price. Supposedly a car dealers desired profit is between 1,500 -2,000. The trade in value for this car is about $6300, therefore I think I should ask about $8200, give him my number, and let him think about it.
