    2008 65k miles 17k worth it?

    Just a quick question for the more experienced Subaru owners on here. There is a dealer asking $17,000 for a 2008 WRX with 65k miles on it. The car runs great and looks clean. No mods are present. Is that price too high for the mileage? Service record is also good and shows regular scheduled maintenance. Thanks in advance!

    I personally don't think any 2008 WRX is worth it.

    I actually purchased this car and i am really enjoying it. I know 09+ are better, but I just couldn't find an affordable one in my area. I figure once this car is paid off they will be in my price range.
