Default Used WRX in Alaska

Can anybody tell me if there is any sort of used market in Alaska for WRXs?

I'm not entirely opposed to buying a new one, but everybody knows how that goes. $2-3,000 for that "new car" smell...

Thanks

I didn't see your location. Are you here in Anchorage? Here is a link to a recent discusion on used WRXs in town:

I black WRX is at AKUSAFCU, the auto Blue is still at Continental, and I'm not sure about the Silver WRX at Phil Haw's.

Naaa, I'm in Fairbanks.

I think I probably know a few of you people that post here.

I know Dan (Yukon1).

Anyhow, I think the idea of a used WRX is starting to scare the **** out of me.

Too many kids who watched Fast and Furious used their $800/mo from McDonald's to finance a WRX and now can't afford it.

That means their cars probably reek of cigarette's/blunts/diapers, whatever...

And they probably dogged the **** out of their gearbox learning how to drive.

That fact coupled with what people are asking for used ones makes me rethink all this. Thanks though!

All three of these cars on the exterior are in good shape. I don't think you have to worry about the fragile gearbox with the auto blue WRX. The black WRX at AKUSAFCU is a repo and I think the previous owner is in Fairbanks. He posts here on occasion. As for the Silver WRX, I'm not sure about it's condition but it has all options. None of these "reek of cigarette's/blunts/diapers, whatever." With any car, you will be unaware of how its previous owner treated or abused it. It is a chance you are going to have to take. I think you might be able to get the black WRX for close to 20k and it only has 5k miles on it.

If that were truly possible, that's almost WAY too good to pass up in my opinion.

$20K is reasonable to say the least for a 5k-driven WRX.

Thanks for your help; agreed concerning previous owner wear/tear.

I forgot to mention that my car has nearly 5k miles and it still smells new.
