    no deal howie.

    I would prob not buy it, but if its in that good of shape and u think its okay go with your instinct. Thats just my opion i dont really like buying a used car with that many miles. I mean if you knew who drove it and it was in good shape do it, but making a car look clean can be easy.

    that is an OK deal. not the best though. We have an 04 with 21k for $24,800 or so. i guess it just depends on how you look at it.

    not sure how they got to $350 though ..unless you have major equity in a trade or lots of money down. the numbers just dont work. even at 72 months at a good rate, you are looking at about $400 per month.

    Haggle more to get it lower! Also I would get a Carfax for it just to make sure that nothing major happened to it considering the year of the car.
    I might be back in the market for the new STI sedan!

    haha... my dumbass didn't read the STI part... my eyes aren't cooperating tonight...

    well according to kbb (and i don't know your zip code so i just went with mine) it says in EXCELLENT condition it should be 24k, but definitely haggle them down.

    they also said 43k miles is average for this car... so at least it's not too far off.

    No deal the dealer wouldn't bring down the price. I am in El Paso TX and it is rare to find a used one here. I guess wait till the next time.

    that sucks... yeah just keep your eye out... or if you know you can get a loan easy enough and have the down payment stuff ready to go, keep looking online in surrounding areas... never know what you might find

    it was hard as hell finding what i wanted around here either. i was specifically looking for a wagon (for the future family and just wanted a bigger car, i had a 3 door saturn before). and everywhere around here it was either an 02-03 (i wanted 04-05) or a sedan. plus i was being picking about color but i finally had to give in and get blue. which i like, but i wanted black .

    so i think it's hard in a lot of places. i just chaulked it up to being a popular car no one wants to get rid of them lol

    For comparison, I just bought a pre-owned 06' Sti with 2,000 miles bone stock for $27K including 6yr warranty.

    Ok here's an update I bought the car at $22K that is including TT&L. Final price. The miles are mainly highway miles. Carfax showed it was originally purchased brand new in oregon and a year later registered in Austin TX. After that registered here in El Paso TX. So I ended up taking the car. Picking up after work.
