I would personally shoot an e-mail out to some Subaru dealers within a few hundred miles, you might be able to get a 2013 base WRX for under or around $25K, you'd have an extra few years on the warranty and have only a few miles on the car. The price doesn't drop much when buying used, you might end up paying about the same price and there's a chance it wasn't treated the best (Plus interest on a new car might be lower). I got my '10 base for $23,981 in Chicago (flew there, drove home) and I see the '10's going for $21K + now. Most cars I would buy used, but probably not a WRX (unless I was going for 08 or older). Good luck & welcome.
