1. The used car is market is horrendously over-priced for even a base model.

3. These car do not depreciate, they actually appreciate ( Which is great if you bought one already not so great for someone who wants one.)
I'm a single 25 year old, who desperately wants an 2011-2012 White Hatch, but for the prices they are asking...I couldn't possibly justify a 450-500 Car payment...
And I don't like the body style of the current Impreza...especially rumors that the power plant will be a 2.0 in the next gen WRX and STi.
I don't know if I'll be ever shifting gears in a white Subaru WRX, in the roads of Upstate NY.
You should check out Van Bortel's
inventory. They're up near Rochester and have a new white 5-sp manual 2013 WRX Hatch
in stock with few accessories added on. They're offering a $1,235 discount off MSRP and the manufacturer is offering 2.9% APR financing (monthly payment less than $400?). You could be driving that car next week.
And when the time comes to sell, it could be worth more than you paid, given that by then new WRXs will only be available with a wimpy 2.0L engine.
