Default Looking to enter the Subaru family

Hey all,

Just joined the forum, and am looking to get myself a WRX sometime in the next 6 months. I have loved them since before I started driving and I now have the means to do something about it.

I have a 2000 Acura RL right now that I would be looking to trade in (probably around $3500 on a good day) and then I could afford about a $200 payment/month. Do you think this is doable for a 05-06 WRX (not STI)? I think I want something with less than 80K miles, but I am pretty open.

Appreciate any advice on where to look (I am in Seattle but am open to traveling to Portland, etc.)

Welcome and good luck. There are many questions that cannot be answered on the internet, sir. Why those particular years btw? Why not an 04-07? Or even 02-07 ( unless you don't like bugeyes )

Expected monthly payment, year range with that kind of mileage will really limit your options. But of course it still doesn't hurt to try.

This should help you out some too.

I would have said 02-07, I just thought it wasn't as realistic for the mileage/price I am looking for. I am very open though.

Thanks for the direction to both of you

Id say $200 a month is aiming a bit low, might be better off doing private sales

Best of luck though you never know when youll find an incredible deal
