what blue book are you looking at?!
you're asking WAAAAY more than the car is worth. the peeling clear coat drops the value pretty significantly unfortunately. KBB lists your cars value at around $1500 not $7000. that is absurd. it's a 15 year old volkswagen man.
even if you listed the car with 28k miles on it (which is a lie) kbb still only suggests $3500. you need to list it as a private seller, not a suggested retail. you aren't selling this through a dealership.
the car DOESN'T have 28,000 miles. just because the engine is a rebuilt engine doesn't change the fact that the body, suspension, interior, and everything else under the hood belongs to a car with 145,000 miles. besides the point, you just posted a car value of $4500... you said it was worth $7000... hard to figure out where that number came from. do yourself a favor... look in the classifieds and see what comparable cars are being sold at. $1500-2500. good luck with your sale "kid". you're definitely gonna need it if you plan on keeping your price that high.
again... here is the price guide for a car with the mileage you have listed in the ACTUAL condition (you had it listed as excellent which is pretty laughable)
