I don't want to have to order one and wait around for 4 months it sounds like torture.
Sure, there is a WRX 2013 hatch sitting at my local Subaru dealer and I saw two more at another. They are all in Florida, however.
There is also a 2013 STI sedan that has been sitting at my local dealer for 2 weeks.
The problem is dealers do NOT want to trade, unless it is for a SIMILAR model. That makes it difficult. Last weekend a gal drove 4 hours to the dealer near me to BUY it because they would NOT trade it to the dealer near her. The reason was that the other dealer didn't have a single WRX/STI to trade for. Pretty much around here you can't trade unless you have similar inventory, or so I have been told and have tried.
I am trying right now to have my dealer trade the STI sedan for a STI hatch at another dealer tomorrow, but he said it's 50/50 if they will. I don't want to drive 3-4 hours to go buy it, but I might.
