It's kind of crazy how the price of a used WRX has gone up over the years.
So in 2013, people are asking $20k for a 2009 WRX? Back in 2006, people were only asking about 15k for a 2002 WRX. I got mine for 10k because i was working at a Mitsubishi dealer at the time and some guy traded in the WRX for a new EVO and they totally raped him on a trade in, gave him 9500 on a 4 year old WRX. Come to think of it, i probably could have sold it for profit but at the time it was my dream car so i kept it and still driving it to this day.
But i guess its a good thing they are so popular, they are holding good value.
