Oh, also since you don't know jack about cars, don't forget to tack on a couple thousand dollars for labor. Or more.
This dealership that only sells cars that "matter" is taking advantage of you. They are feeding you bullcrap and right now you need someone to help you see straight. Your not thinking with your head. Your an easy target with $15k burning a hole in your pocket. You are being manipulated. You fell in love after one test drive of one STi. Purchasing a car should be as emotionless as possible precisely so something like this does not occur.
Take the car back. Keep saving your money and in your free time hang out on here and other boards learning everything you can. Never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever buy a sports car without getting it fully inspected. These cars are routinely beaten to within an inch of their life. Mark my words if you keep this car it will be a money pit and you will regret it. Learn then buy. Not the other way around.
Ya this guy is blunt and to the point but very right. Like I said I had a similar situation with my car and it ran like **** right after I bought it. They were to dumb to figure out that it was just a loose injector wire so I got a great deal but they still manipulated me into buying my car that they knew was not running properly. I would seriously just return that car and wait it out till you find the right one. Stis are all over the place with the minority of them being beat to hell but of you wait you can and will find one that is in good shape and worth the money. You shouldn't have to put money into a car that you just purchased.
