    consumer report says the #1 car for reliability is SUBARU and acura. So go to a subie dealer and go nuts.

    thing is with a wrx/sti, unless you buy it from a non hot-rod 1st and only owner grandma, whoever had the wrx before you probably beat it up a little. depending what your spending limit is, id go for a higher model yr (04,05,06,07) and try to get the one with the least amount of miles possible, and at a dealership also and see if you can get a warranty. even tho it has little miles, doesnt mean it wasnt abused either. dont buy any wrxs with mods, get a stock one. other then that, its a subaru, it wont break down on you anytime soon subarus were meant to drive up to 200,000 miles and still run fine with scheduled maintenance. other then that, id wait for the other responses to see what they gotta say about it.
