    Full service history with all receipts for authentic Subaru parts including all recalls, and an intact factory warranty as a result, mileage permitting.

    and can i trust a WRX STi with 50,000-60,000 miles on it?
    You can't trust daylight.

    However, having all receipts for all service and repairs in front of you, and knowing the car still has the remaining factory warranty valid are at a minimum good starting points. If buying from a dealer, check their business record; if from a private owner, ideally find someone you know that's boring and reserved and anal retentive.

    ahh, please help, i need to know more about this vehicle.
    Start with the sticky threads in each forum here and on the other Subaru sites, there's tons of info to be learned.

    If you don't mind driving to Albany, a local guy here is selling his '07 STi for ~$26k with a Blouch Dom1 turbo.
