    Not sure what the NADA price is. But that is way too overpriced IMO. You can get a brand new car for $25k. Especially if you are financing,new cars have lower loan finance rates than used cars.

    Don't do it. Seriously don't. Its an awful deal on an awful car.... well just the 2008's. They are only 227 HP not 265 like the 2009+. Suspensions suck... and looks like a Corolla.
    Just look it up online, 2008 is the WORST year WRX you can buy.
    I must apologize to any 2008 owners that I have offended.

    There a nail on that step man.
    I'm sure the dealer is just dying to unload that car someone. Rage is right, just get a new car at that price. How would your Jeep do in private sale?

    WRX market is not good for the used car shopper. Recent years have held value extremely well and aren't a good bet for the informed buyer as it is hard to argue that a used car is worth nearly as much as a new one. Older cars are tougher and tougher to find unmolested.

    If you really want to get a wrx, well, is it imperative that you buy a car now? Or can you wait and save, and therefore be able to put money down on a new one?

    My jeep might do 12-13k on private market. It's the only vehicle I have that i can transport myself to and from work. Right now for the next couple years 250-300 is what ill be stuck at. My jeep has alot of miles on it and need to get rid of it before it starts having problems.

    If HP and body styling is the only thing wrong with the 08 thats not that big of a problem.. HP is fixable and i dont look at the outside anyway

    You need to find away to save up for a new one, 20k is outrageous for a 4-5 years old car that costs 25-26k new. Imo
    You say horsepower is "fixable"? Not without money, which you claim to not have.
