I'm looking to get a 04-06 STI (prefer 05). I'm having a difficult time finding something in my price range of $15,000-$19,000.
There is someone selling an '04 with 206,000km for $13,000. I've owned a few Subaru's with high milage (non were turbo'ed) and never really had a problem but how reliable would an STI with 200,000+km be?
Should I hold out and buy something more expensive or drive that for a few years until I can afford something newer?
If it matters here's a few highlights from the car ad: Sways bars left and right, fully tuned with a stand alone ecu. Cobb, Turboxs, Cusco, GTspec.
I'll obviously need to check brakes, timing belt and clutch.
There's also another '04 for sale for $24,000 with 70,000km but thats a bit more than I want to spend right now.
