    so what's that good price???
    STi is generally more "driver resistant" than WRX, especially the tranny.

    go look at the car...see if he took good care about it and ask him some questions about why he is selling the car and ask if he kept all reciepts for the vehicle and if theres a warranty still on the car...then see if you can take it for a drive and see how it goes...if the car seems to be driving well, id say go for it

    The STi has a great tranny. I don't think you need to worry about that.

    So what's the deal you got?

    I'm with Gus on this one. Be careful. This seems too good to be true. I bought my used STi with ~10k miles for $25.7 and that was a good deal.

    I havent gotten my STi yet but i saw this guy online selling his 04 for 14000 in brooklyn. he told someone else hes in Washington. With such low mileage the STi shouldn't go under $20000, then again he could be desperate to get it off of his hands.

    I'd run from that crap. Look for a different one and don't get burned.

    Hm....I'm a little skeptical on the pricing. I have 4350 miles on it now and I bought my brand new 2005 STi in July 2004 for $32,500. And even if it is "used", the pricing shouldn't be "that" low unless there was something particularly wrong with the vehicle. I would estimate that a STi with 4700 miles on it being at least above $30k -- I'm saying this because there are owners out there that have even 20,000 miles on their car and they're asking for at least ~$27k. So if I were you, I'd be careful. Good luck!
