    Is Subaru dropping the STi?

    I just went by the local Subaru dealer to get some info since I was thinking about trading the Evo for one. He said that the 05 is going to be even more limited then the 04's and to get one, you pretty much have to order it because you wont find many sitting on lots at all. The 04's are hard enough to find and the 05's are going to be even harder, sounds like Subaru may only be making these for another year, anyone know whats up?

    Typical dealer sales pitch. Their goal is to always get you to commit by telling you whatever they can to make you want to buy, trade right then. Just my .02

    How many WRX STi cars are you looking to purchase? If it's only 3 or 4, I bet several dealers in my state can help you out - when I was at my dealer's lot last, about a month ago, there were a few laying around. If you're looking for more than that, I am guessing they'll cooperate with one another to get you the number of cars you need (make them pay for delivery, they can lease a big rig from Penske)...

    The beauty of cars is that they make more. Otherwise, nobody could buy them... For fun, tell the dealer pressuring you thanks, I'll buy a BMW (or something else), since I don't want to be stuck with a dead-end orphaned car (or, don't waste your time and just buy a car either now or in 2005, but not under pressure - no need for that!).

    When I first started looking at the STi in January I asked the salesman if they were coming out with an '05 in June/July. He said "well you never know, Subaru might not make the STi after this year."

    I just said "thanks" shook my head and walked away. That was the dumbest thing I've ever heard from a salesman.

    I'd predict that the STis will run in limited numbers for another 2 or 3 years until the "next big thing" comes along. Hell, I've even heard rumours of a major remodel in MY06 (2005.)

    why would you trade an EVO in?

    I would rather have one of those than the STi.

    I guess that is since I already own my REX....want both in my stable.....

    The dealer closest to me and 4 STis, and it's a small dealer too. They must be hard to get where you live.

    I am considering it because if Mitsubishi goes out of business, I will be stuck with a car that has no warranty and its not even a year old.

    Hard to find?? You can almost always find at least one being sold on Ebay at any time.

    for 1700 bucks my suby is covered till 100k miles, dont be worried, there are enough 4G63's to build a mountain with... so spend a grand and know the car is covered for a very long time.

    Yes, thats definetly a sales pitch. White Allen subaru in dayton says different dealers get alotments according to sale performance. They did say that you cannot order certain colors at this time, because they are just sent over from japan, no calls. You can however go track down one of your favorite color once its in the states.

    And if subaru / mitsubishi denies warranty, id go to joe schmoe porsche tuner for tranny/engine work around the corner!... he makes money, i drive, everybodies happy.
