Arrow Interesting Situation - Need Advice

So here's the skinny,

MY g/f is getting a new car. She has approximately a $15-17000 limit, so it's tight, but I really want to see her in a Subaru. I think she should go with a 2002 2.5 TS, even though it's a little out of reach. What are some good used deals, and what do people think about the '02s coming out? If you need more info, let me know. The car will be a manual, and I believe she needs the AWD as she lives in VT. Let me know what you guys think. Also recommendations on dealers would be cool. Thanks.

Golin

What about the new TS 2.5? I've seen prices on those for the low 17s. Alos, how do warranties and whatnot carry over from the factory on used RSs? Thanks for the help so far though.

I was doing some snooping at my dealer here and I happened to see a paper with new arrivals listed on it. They had RS's, Foresters, Legacys, Imprezas....everything listed for what they bought it at auction for. They were all 98-2001,had 50K or so miles, and ALL of them were bought for around $13K!!!!! You have some barganing room I think

I'd half to imagine there are tons', and tons of used RS's to be found in the comming weeks. That's what I'd recomend. A used rs. Good luck.

Yeah, but used rs's hover around 17-20.
Legacy GTs around 16 (have seen one at 11.5)
OBS around 15.

I'm still curious about the 2002 TS 2.5. I think it could be a great buy. Has anyone heard anything else about the new imprezas vs. the old ones?
