Just purchased a used 2004 WRX 5 speed silver wagon about 2 weeks ago in White Rock. Had it in the lower mainland for 2 days then drove it all the way up to Northern BC.
It's my first time driving a thing with so much power. Amazing. Good buy indeed. The previous owner kept it mint too. Although I had to change the tires as they had bad camber wear and had alignment done to it too. Handling is amazing. I can't help but emphasize the practicality of the wagon. Plus it's a total sleeper...
Totally in love with the car. Although I've been hearing of gas mileage that are off the charts compared to mine. I was getting about 10-11 kms/L (600-660 kms/tank) assuming 60 L tank. And this was done mostly highway too (1100 kms from Vancouver to a small town in Chetwynd). Maybe my foot is heavy on the gas?
Anyways, hopefully the car will be back in the lower mainland soon.
