I have a car that's rate is 1000$.

If I want to replace the word "that", what word shall I use to do so?

I have a car which rate is 1000$.

I know it does not sound right! Which "wh" word would be appropriate here?

P.S. please any moderators change the title as "which rate". I mistakenly wrote "which are".

You are going to have a tough time getting an answer because "I have a car that's rate is 1000$." makes no sense. Try rephrasing it and expanding on its meaning and we'll do our best to help you.

Yes, that's the problem! I have difficulty in phrasing the original sentence itself.

What I mean: My car prize is 1000$. I want to say something like "I have a car. It's prize is 1000$". I just want a word that connects two sentence!

(I am sorry I think it should have been prize and not rate.)

Do you mean the price of your car is $1000? You are selling the car and it will cost $1000 for someone to buy it?

Note that "price" and "prize" are two different words.

Also note the dollar symbol goes before, not after, the numerical part.

My car cost $1000 when I bought it.
My car is worth $1000.
My car is for sale. The price is $1000.

I really apologize for making such a confusion with usage of words like rate, price and prize! I usually Google the words that I am having confusion with and post it but today morning my internet was really slow and I could't make question accurate and clear! I will try my level best not to repeat it again!

What I meant is: I have a car and I brought it for $1000. I want to mention that I own the car and the price of the car in the same sentence!

For an example: I have a friend who is a doctor! (In this case, I say I have a friend and also mention he is a doctor).

Can I form a sentence like this for the earlier one?

I have a car______ price is $1000. Can I fill some word in there and make it one sentence like the word "who" in earlier example?

"Whose" is the possessive relative adjective. The sentence is kind of funny, because you can just say "I have a $1000 car."

If you want to use a "wh" word, you could say:

I have a car, the price of which is $1000.

It's not the most natural thing to say, but it has a "wh" word in it.

If you own a car and you're not planning to sell it, you wouldn't refer to its price, you would refer to its value or its worth. If it cost you $1000, it probably isn't worth that now.
