    I'd take any car I'm considering seriously to an independent mechanic and pay for them to have a look at it. It may save you lots of money down the road. I also prefer cars with a full service history. Be selective, they make more Subarus every day. Find the one that's right even if it takes some time.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    I'm posting links to the cars in case anyone wants to take a look.

    First is subaru, second is evo, and third is ms3. The salesman told me 21000 not the 18995 as stated in the ad.

    DON'T get a car unless you can put it fully through its paces. This doesn't mean rag on it, but driving it is necessary.

    Check out my buyer's checklist and see, but this particular subaru seems like a bad deal. And remember that you may have to make sacrifices - unless you get super lucky, you'll need to sacrifice time (wait a bit), money, distance from you, or features (up to you whether you want to go this far).

    yeah man if they wont let you drive any of them i would tell them off... how are you supposed to know if the car runs like it should... the wrx is clean, but the price isnt right.. i found my limited 06 with leather interrior and the moonroof for 15.5k if they arent even flexible with the price stay away...

    one thing i would recommend, especially with a turbocharged car, and having to get one before the months end, you should be looking to travel... i took a 16 hour trip to get mine and loved every moment of it... hit up autotrader, set it to 300 miles and find the best one.
