    Have $10-12k to spend for used STI..?

    newbie on forum...
    My friend has a '05 STI, and i just love it..very fun...
    I've driven wagons in last few years, but would like to drive a fun car now...

    have $10-12K to spend, and don't want a maintenance hog, but something very reliable.

    Are used ('05-'07) STI require lots of maitenance (low mods vs hi mods) ?

    thanks!

    Welcome. Unfortunately the only sti you will find for 10-12k will be either salvage title, blown engine, or have a zillion miles on them.


    As far as a used sti being high maintenance, it depends on how the previous owner took care of it

    Hey, welcome to the forum.

    Sorry to say, but you are not going to find a used STI in that price range that won't be a POS. An 05 sti with 120k miles in good condition is worth $16k still. Bugeye WRXs in good stock shape are still almost $10k.

    Good luck with your searching and stick around, learn a bunch, save some money, and pick one up in a couple years

    If you can swing the insurance, just dump that money into a down payment on a new one

    Otherwise for 10-12K you're not going to get close to a "decent" used 05-07 wrx let alone a STI.

    As others have stated, a 10-12k sti is guaranteed to be a money pit. Buy a clean bugeye or lease/finance a new wrx.
