My Hyundai Tiburon was totaled when I was stopped at a red light. The insurance company strung me along so it took two months to receive the check. I was conned by two dealerships of cars on the way who either lied and ordered a car, or sold the car to people who financed. Since insurance only covered the rental for a month I was car pooling and borrowing cars, so I couldn't wait 6-8 weeks. The second dealer tried to make it right but for a silver premium for the price of the limited. The dealer my brother found his auto premium wrx had a limited sitting there after hearing my story they gave a great offer.
Its a limited manual with nav and Harmon kardon sound system, and center arm rest. The interior is a big step up from the last gen. The same could be said about the suspension. The low end spool keeps the break in a little fun. My brother tested and bought an CVT while I was looking for a manual. Comparing the two I will say if you don't like messing with the electrical go with the ungraded sound system. The navigation is better than most factory nav but ok compared to aftermarket. It does play video but requires a USB stick. The Bluetooth system is far better than Chevy(my rental) and very clear.
I will say it feels like I could launch from 2nd and cut down the 0-60 numbers. The CVT is just as much fun as the manual.
